ACTIVE Network (NYSE: ACTV), the leader in cloud-based Activity and Participant Management™ (APM), today announced that the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment is automating its hunting, trapping and angling licensing through the Company’s ACTIVE Works® Outdoors solution to make the process easier and more convenient for provincial constituents.
“ACTIVE Network offers us enterprise-level management of licensing processes with the added benefits of centralized reporting and the ability to process payments quickly,” said Saskatchewan Environment Minister Ken Cheveldayoff. “The deployment of an automated licensing system is an important step toward driving our growth agenda, and we believe will significantly benefit both our license issuers and citizens.”
Saskatchewan issues more than 170,000 hunting and 185,000 angling licenses each year. According to the Ministry, hunting & fishing licensing contributes roughly $40 million to the GDP and over 2,500 direct jobs. By automating their systems, the Ministry can help improve:
- Revenue collection
- Financial management
- Game harvest reporting
- Centralized program reporting and administration
- Data management
- Customer service for the general public via call centers
- Support for the license issuers
“Prior to selecting our ACTIVE Works technology, licensing within Saskatchewan was a manual and paper-based process,” said Steve Connolly, SVP of Outdoors at ACTIVE Network. “Harnessing our technology will help allow the Ministry to gain greater efficiency and cost savings, enabling them to better focus on their constituents and provide easier access to the outdoors.”
ACTIVE Network processes more than 37 million hunting and fishing licenses annually and is the number one processor of hunting and fishing licenses in the U.S. ACTIVE Works Outdoors offers enterprise-level management of outdoor recreation facilities and programs on public lands, including campgrounds and parks, marinas, historical/natural tour/ticketing sites, wilderness areas, and game/wildlife management programs. The consumer portals operated under the ReserveAmerica.com and Recreation.gov brands provide booking access to the largest inventory of outdoor recreation activities in North America.
