Harry-We have been using UNISYS Difax charts via FTP for the past year. Their service is slow, and they often mis charts, or charts are late. How has the experience been with Alden's DIFAX via IDD? Have you seen any of these complaints?We don't use it operationally here, so I can't give you any input on the UPC experience. We haven't really seen much traffic on the DIFAX service (good or bad), so if there are problems, I'm assuming people are contacting Alden directly. I'm cc'ing this to difax@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx to get some input from those using the service. Anyone want to share their thoughts on this subject?
We've used the DIFAX service from Alden, and it generally works well. It still crashes occasionally on weekends for a 1/2 day, but they've pretty much gotten that ironed out. As for the quality--excellent, and always on time. Gilbert
