Release of Pay As You Sail v1.4

The latest version of our Pay As You Sail (PAYS) system has been released to our distributors.

v1.4 of the system significantly reduces the administration required by distributors to provide ENC chart services for their customers, as well as improving the timeliness of data and permit delivery to vessels.

This is achieved by enabling the automatic download of chart permits for vessels enrolled in our PAYS system. Prior to this update, chart permits were manually updated by a PAYS operator at the distributor. The more vessels that enrolled to the PAYS system, the longer the manual updates took, seeing an increase in administration time. This update eliminates the administration time needed to update chart permits.

Our new release also supports any changes made outside of the weekly update, including new non-PAYS chart purchases and modifications to the user permits registered against a vessel.

The PAYS system ensures the latest charts are always on board as the back-of-bridge updating system obtains the latest versions from the PAYS service. It then outputs them as part of a fully up-to-date exchange set for the ECDIS.
