Kelly Registration Systems Develops Software Solutions for Washington State Department of Agriculture

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.

A New App for Blackberry Makes Holding on to Your Blackberry Worthwhile

Bluefree Messenger a new app for Blackberry phones launched this week with some very impressive features than may make Blackberry users want to hold on to their phones.

Bluefree Messenger is a new free Instant Messenger application that uses Bluetooth along with your 3G data package to help find new business contacts in several languages such as French, English, Greek, Spanish, Russian, Dutch, German and Italian with more languages being added each week.

After downloading from the company website using the short web address www.bfm.im the install took a short while as the application is two megabytes in size which got me thinking, This must be something interesting or something heavy and boring.

The application starts with a language selection and then a simple name, email and password input, nothing strange here. After login I was greeted with a short page of text advising me on the next steps to setting up my application. Was given a‘Bluefree ID’ that needed to be copied into the Bluetooth device name description this is the name (that you see if you have ever done a Bluetooth scan) a button to help me copy the ID was placed at the bottom of the home screen.

After I pasted the ‘Bluefree ID’ and returned back it to the application the message had disappeared the application has detected that I had changes the Bluetooth name on my phone which I thought was very cleaver and it got me more interested.

I clicked the menu key and found lots of options and pages to go through, Setting up my Business Card Profile, Setting up my Personal profile, Options and much more. With all these data entry fields like Facebook ID, Linkedin ID, BBM Pin, Email address, Phone numbers and many more I really liked the idea that I can share everything from one place to all my contacts.

Bluefree Messenger turned very quickly it Got Exciting! as I did not have anyone else around me the ‘Bluetooth Scan’ did not find any new contacts, desperate to add a contact I sent a BBM to my friends and asked them to setup Bluefree so we can give it a try, soon enough people had Bluefree Messenger installed and they had there‘Bluefree IDs’ at the ready, adding a contact using the ‘Bluefree ID’ was easy just two clicks direct under the ‘Contacts’ menu.

Two of my friends where near each other they where able to add each other by one of them doing a ‘Bluetooth Scan’ and finding the other persons business card and then viewing and sending an invitation, They said it was “Effortless”.

Chatting was easy as you expect from any chat app but Bluefree Messenger has some nice features that I liked such as the @READ times showing me when my message was read similar to the Apple Iphone ios5 imessage. And the Smilies are very cool, the best I have seen on any messenger application.

After we finished chatting, I explored the Options menu, I was amazed at the number of options and details that I could change like my LED light colour and how by Bluetooth should collect business cards. I even change the language to see how it looks. And one very important feature that’s missing from other messenger application the ‘Logout’ button finally I have an Instant messenger that I can logout off and log back in when I need to,

Returning back to the home screen I had some ‘Latest Updates’ similar to BBM and I could also view my contact Business card or Personal profile. It also has ‘Broadcast Message’ and ‘Chat History’ features I found when I press the menu key on a select contact.
