Key Functions, Key Value
iSportsman is a one-source solution to handle all of your recreational program management needs. Our SaaS guides the total user-experience from first contact, info sharing and registration to permit sales, involvement in activities and reporting the results of those activities.
- Information Dissemination
- Registration of Users
- Permit Sales
- Free Permit Availability
- Safety Briefings
- Area Access Control
- Harvest Reporting
- Satisfaction Surveys
- Automated Alerts and Reminders
Automating processes such as permit sales and sharing key program information online lowers costs by reducing manpower requirements to carry them out. Automated tools to reach out to registered users makes it easy to market permit renewals, upcoming opportunities and important reminders such as permit deadlines.
Automatically control and monitor access both outside and indoors to know who is active and when they are active in the areas under your program’s responsibility. Program administrators and security personnel can quickly log-in to determine who and how many people are in an area. Our service provides a number of tools to aid security and law enforcement personnel to better monitor who is in secure areas and verify when someone is where they are not supposed to be.
Know where visitors/recreationists are active and alert them to changing conditions or reach them in the event of an emergency through iSportsman. Weather, training area activities on military bases, wildfire or other dangers can require administrators to evacuate areas quickly. iSportsman provides the tools to do that. It also provides a more accurate starting point to initiate search-and-rescue operations should a person not return when they are supposed to.
Few organizations have the luxury of excess manpower. Often faced with reduced availability of staff, personnel can be directed to other vital tasks needed to improve overall operations. With iSportsman automating many management functions, it frees up available team members and volunteers for other required tasks essential to carrying out the mission of your agency.
