press release
Monday, November 07, 2011

Simplifying the bridge environment must be one of the greatest challenges faced by the shipping industry.

 

Thomas Gunn is delighted to announce that it has teamed up with Regs4ships, to provide a complete bridge solution for the navigator, offering Regs4ships digital maritime regulations incorporated into its streamed Voyager navigational data management system.Ship operators are demanding complete business solutions, says Thomas Gunn, founder and Managing Director of Thomas Gunn Navigation Services Ltd. “Today’s bridge environment is becoming more complex and regulated, and the navigator is subject to increasing pressure in order to stay abreast of regulations and requirements. Officers and in particular, navigators, demand access to the most up-to-date information, exactly when they need it - be that navigational charts or legislation. Our partnership with Regs4ships means that this important information can be delivered regularly in one package through the Voyager chart management system.”
 

Regs4ships delivers a vessel electronic documentation covering Flag State requirements, EU Legislation, ILO Conventions and IMO output. Key documents are amended and updated by maritime professionals saving time and money; preventing accidents and avoiding compliance issues. Thomas Gunn’s Voyager provides the mariner with a personalised database of publications, charts and the applicable notices to mariners (NTM) within a clear folio system. Weekly updates are provided through email or internet. Data is sent to the service user via weekly updates and an emphasis on reducing file sizes is key as file compression is used and only files of relevance to the vessel’s chart outfit are supplied. Nearly 2,000 vessels are currently subscribed to the Voyager service worldwide.


“The synergy between our two businesses can only benefit our customers,” added Thomas Gunn. “Customer response to this initiative has been very positive so far and we are looking forward to a long and mutually productive partnership with Regs4ships in the future.”
