Jeppesen say that their new FlatFee licensing for its official Electronic Navigation Charts (ENCs) makes accessing and using them easy, cost effective and planning friendly.
Jeppesen FlatFee lets mariners purchase some or all of nine worldwide zones at an affordable fixed price. Once purchased, vessels are able to view and use all charts, for both voyage planning and navigation, without limitations for a subscription term of one year.
This helps mariners improve safety and ENC handling, while simplifying Port State Controls and ensuring predictable charting costs. If sailing needs change, additional zone subscriptions can be added without having to create new licenses — making Jeppesen FlatFee an extremely flexible and expandable chart licensing option. Jeppesen uses a variation of existing licensing methods to ensure accurate processing of Hydrographic Office commissions.
"Initial reports from vessels testing our FlatFee licensing have been overwhelmingly positive," said Gary Minard, Jeppesen director, global marine sales and marketing. "This new solution is better meeting our customers' needs by helping overcome both the hassles and unpredictable costs associated with using ENCs around the world."
Jeppesen's full suite of innovative solutions includes Jeppesen FleetManager, Ship Report, Weather Routing and Piracy Updates, all developed to work in concert with Jeppesen's official ENCs available around the world.
