Fish & Game Licensing.
Gordon-Darby Incorporated’s (GDI) partnership with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), enabled GDI to integrate our expertise into the Fish and Game licensing industry.
In conjunction with TPWD, GDI developed and provided an automated web-based system as well as the hardware necessary to sell commercial and recreational hunting and fishing licenses. Three modes of the sales application were established to meet the needs of sales agents and the internet based customers. The License Sales Application (LSA) is integrated into GDI’s Point of Sale (POS) kit as a stand-alone sales terminal for retail agents and also provided to approximately 500 agents who utilize their own personal computer as the gateway to the license application. GDI provides the ancillary hardware required in either setup along with the specialized license stock required by TPWD. Approximately 1,800 sales agents participate in the program. The Internet Sales Application (ISA) is a web based application available to the general public to purchase licenses through the internet site. The Public Hunt System (PHS) is the lottery based application designed for specialized and limited hunts. This system was designed to eliminate any paper application processes, interested individuals complete the entire process through an online paperless system.
Along with providing the software, hardware, and pertinent media stock necessary to facilitate the sales process, GDI also staffs knowledgeable bilingual Customer Service Representatives (CSR) to assist sales agents year-round.
The successful implementation of the three applications: LSA, ISA, and PHS generate over one hundred million ($100,000,000) in gross revenue per fiscal year for the state of Texas.
This partnership is an important foundation in facilitating TPWD’s mission to manage and conserve the natural and cultural resources of Texas and to provide hunting, fishing, and outdoor recreation opportunities for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The revenues generated from this system are used in support of the management and conservation of the natural and cultural resources of the State of Texas.
