ChartCo, a provider of maritime digital data services, has acquired Regs4ships, a supplier of digital regulatory information, consultancy and training.
ChartCo is part of the Kelvin Hughes Group and created a range of digital services in 1998 in anticipation of the move from paper to digital charts and publications. ChartCo now offers a range of services aimed at assisting the navigator to not only maintain the chart outfit but both plan and execute a voyage. The key PassageManager suite of software is built into many operators’ safety management systems. It provides consistent and compliant procedures and facilitates external audit.
“Regs4ships has an excellent reputation within the maritime market for providing expert, high-quality solutions to the ever-growing list of compliance issues,” said Martin Taylor, managing director of ChartCo.
ChartCo has worked with Regs4ships to define new products and services. Regs4ships will also provide ChartCo with consultancy services for its expanding customer base.
Regs4ships was founded in 2001 by three ex-captains and MCA surveyors.
ChartCo now provides digital data to almost 10,000 users within the maritime community. For more information, visit www.chartco.com.
