Complete Digitization of Licensing and Landings Application

The State of Maine is flush with marine resources and with these rich resources comes the task of administering and enforcing regulations to conserve and continue the sustained development of these areas.

The current paper process for all licensing applications is not able to keep up with the 88 different license types. The goal is to streamline the application and renewal process for all license types so that everything can be handled on a mobile platform.



The Challenge

Collaboration efforts using paper documents proved to be challenging

The immense number of license types makes it so complex and the ability for end users to initiate the application and renewal process for all license types had become challenging.

The client was seeking a better design for, tracking, catching and landing activity for all licensed fisherman as well as ridding themselves of their dated paper process for applications and renewals.
