  • New arrivals at CherSoft

    We are very pleased to welcome some new faces to the CherSoft team.

    CherSoft is constantly trying to better understand how mariners use our products in order to provide a better experience. We've now taken this a step further by appointing Roger Jones as Master Mariner to CherSoft. Roger obtained his Master Foreign-Going Certificate in 1968 and is an extremely experienced seafarer with decades of experience on many classes of vessel, from Ro/Ro ferries to small commercial craft. Since retiring he has become a keen yachtsman, sailing extensively in the Atlantic and Pacific. Roger adds to the wealth of nautical expertise at CherSoft and provides an invaluable link between us and our end-users.

    Also joining us is Owen Johnson, who joins us as part of the AtoBviaC Distance Tables team. Owen will be helping us to maintain the highest-quality ships' routeing database in the world, covering over 3,000 ports worldwide, and trusted by some of the biggest names in the shipping and offshore sectors.
