NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC)
Shortly after implementing a COTS permit and licensing case management system for the NYS Sporting License System, the Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) knew that they wanted a more modern and efficient user experience. NYSDEC desired an Amazon-like shopping experience for NYS Sportsmen and Sportswomen and engaged GCOM to assist with the design, development and implementation of the new NYSDEC DECALS 2.0 portal. The new DECALS portal features a lightweight HTML5/JAVA presentation and web application that provides an innovative, engaging, and intuitive user experience while leveraging the existing transactional, case management application, and persistence layers performing the day-to-day program management and reporting functions of the NYS Sporting License Program.
How GCOM Assisted
The DECALS 2.0 Portal was recognized as a great success by internal and external NYSDEC stakeholders. The new DECALS 2.0 Portal reduces end-user transaction time from 4 minutes to less than 1 minute per transaction. In addition, NYSDEC received accolades from the New York State Town Clerks Association on the new user interface, both for the greatly improved ease of use and for the significant improvement in performance.
