Making end-to-end route planning simple, cost-effective and more efficient
Voyager’s Passage Planning tool eliminates hours of administrative workload, cuts paperwork and improves day to day operations onboard. Having everything in one place means navigators don’t have to keep switching between different software’s for different tasks and provides a much simplier and more efficient way of working.
Why there's nothing quite like Voyager
Voyager PLANNING STATION is designed by our mariners and UX experts who all share the same belief – that navigation software should make complex things simpler, reduce time on mundane tasks and enhance safety. From the home page that tells you what you need to know at one glance to the simplest ENC updating, route planning and optimization – Voyager is a pleasure to use.
44.2% fewer compliance issues
Voyager PLANNING STATION users are less likely to get navigation-related observations or be detained. That’s because Voyager simplifies routine tasks like index management, updating and route planning and lowers risk of human error.
Manage MARPOL compliance with ease
Voyager PLANNING STATION allows users to manage MARPOL compliance with designated Special Areas, Emission Control Areas and Particularly Sensitive Sea Areas. Giving you the ability to view up to date areas under MARPOL as an overlay on either a map or an ENC from within Voyager.
Navigate with less effort
Less manual data entry, cutting and pasting makes crews more productive. Voyager users waste > 20 fewer hours per week on mundane tasks. That means a more efficient and safer bridge.
Route planning process can all be done in one place
Today, bridge officers using ENCs for navigation must validate each route in ECDIS and then transfer the route back to a PC in order to get any missing permits and check for ENC updates. With Voyager PLANNING STATION, the entire route planning process can be done in one place.
Save time and fuel
We work with world’s leading weather, routing and tidal data experts to provide the best route recommendations. Simplify complex calculations and save $’000s per route.
