Kelly Registration Systems (KRS), a leading provider of essential information and automation solutions to the agribusiness industry, today announced that the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry (ODA) selected two of its administrative management solutions to modernize inspections and licensing.
ODA will leverage Kelly State Inspection and Investigation System (KSIIS) to automate its inspections and enforcement efforts. ODA manages licensing for 117 programs, 31 of which are inspections programs. In one program alone inspectors perform about 1,000 inspections annually.
Through the Kelly State Administrative Management System for businesses, dealers and individuals (KSAMS-bdi), the department will have a single departmental solution for licensing and payment processing, making this formerly paper-based process more cost effective and efficient.
Oklahoma inspectors are able to access registrant and licensee data in real time in the field and to manage regulatory licensing functions.
Since 2001, ODA has used KRS for online registrations and renewals of pesticide products.
“We are pleased to be working in this new capacity with ODA. We often find states recognize us as the pesticide registrations company since that’s where we started, but we do so much more. Working exclusively with this industry for more than 20 years has afforded us the opportunity to build a suite of services customized specifically for departments of ag,” said Stuart Edmondson, CTO, Kelly Registration Systems. “We won this contract through a third-party selection process, and we feel one of our greatest strengths is our understanding of the needs existing among departments of agriculture.”
Since 1993, KRS has developed software exclusively for departments of agriculture – for product registrations, renewals, licensing, permits, certifications, inspections/investigations, tonnage, pollinator protection, and more – with a single platform accessed online, with no infrastructure investment required.
