    The delivery marks a significant juncture in the CherSoft Team’s growth strategy as they look to new partners and international clients to globally develop their market leading tidal solutions and marine navigation services.

    Simon Salter, CherSoft director and founder said, “the TdB delivery to SHOM confirms the inherent functionality of the database and highlights the professional standing of the CherSoft team. CherSoft is very pleased to have been selected by CARIS as the best company to provide this and to assist in the developing the production capabilities of SHOM. We are all looking forward to a continuing relationship with CARIS and further supporting SHOM in the future”.
