KRS announces the expansion of its contract with the Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) for its feed and fertilizer, agricultural investigations and weights & measures programs.
KRS’ new contract provides back-office support allowing WSDA staff to track licenses, registrations, reports and certifications while automating real-time online processes for fee payments, information updating and data searching.
A back-office management system, Kelly State Administrative Management Systems (KSAMS) will be implemented to process feed licenses and tonnage reporting online, plus Agricultural Investigation Licenses, which account for more than 700 dealers, brokers, agents and cash buyers of livestock, produce, hay, seed and crops. Additionally, KSAMS-bdi will provide automation for the annual licensing and renewal process of over 400 weighmasters, and 682 service persons in Washington State, providing instant delivery of renewal notices and payment processing while generating a wide range of reports. The KSAMS-pr application and online capabilities also apply to management of feed-product registrations and payments managed by the state.
A separate program, Kelly State Inspection and Investigation System (KSIIS), will manage the full range of W&M inspections and investigations, sample tracking and interfacing with the lab. Last year, Washington W&M inspected 2,000 locations and approximately 27,500 separate weighing and measuring devices. KSIIS will provide total workflow support, enabling inspectors to perform their duties in the field without access to the Internet.
This project is an expansion of the current contract with KRS for WSDA’s pesticide, feed and fertilizer divisions, which enables field inspection staff to use laptops in remote locations, working in a paperless manner in every aspect of their inspections and investigations: collecting evidence, submitting data to Area Review Managers, and generating numerous reports, case write-ups, Notices of Correction, etc.
“KRS earned this contract because our software is customized for any type of license, registration or inspection activity, and WSDA realized the opportunity to leverage the work that had already been done and apply it across other divisions,” says Stuart Edmondson, CTO, Kelly Registration Systems. “KRS provides fully-hosted and maintained solutions to meet state regulatory needs, whether for one area or many, as in Washington’s case. With our electronic payment solutions, we have been able to help Washington serve its constituents in a cost-effective manner, while utilizing the latest technologies.”
KRS manages and automates state pesticide registration and renewals, maintaining the nation’s largest collection of state-accepted pesticide product labels and material safety data sheets, serving 36 states and numerous companies.
