Raj Dewan, Director - Procurement and Technical Services of SeaSpan Ship Management Ltd. added “We looked closely at a few good updating systems that are now available in the market and undertook exhaustive sea trials. ChartCo stood out as being the most comprehensive and easy to use. As we operate on a global basis with various crewing nationalities, usability was a vital consideration.
