Game and Fish launches
new login portal
CHEYENNE - A recent change to the
Wyoming Game and Fish Department website improves customer service and online
security for people who make purchases or
submit applications.
Launched Feb. 4, a new login portal
requires people to create a username and
password and log in to the system before
conducting business.
" What we're trying to do is make things
more secure and make things more standardized for best practices on the web, " said Jason
Edwards, Game and Fish IT application
development supervisor. " There is the aspect
of customer service to make things easier
for our customers, but we're also creating a
better security environment. "
The user account feature comes with some
big advantages. The account will serve as a
dashboard for information specific to the
customer. People can easily switch between
applying or buying licenses, checking
hunting preference points and draw results
and looking up chronic wasting disease
test results without having to log in
multiple times.
" One of the things we're trying to eliminate with this consolidated login is once
you're logged in, you will bypass old security
methodology and proceed to do whatever
you want to do. That will be a big win to
the customers, " Edwards said.
The process to create this login system
included research, discussions, coding and
testing to ensure Game and Fish covered all
of its bases.
" The software development team, in
conjunction with other departments, took
time to build a login that allowed for a
smooth transition for the customer and
made sense for where we wanted to go with

future changes, " Edwards said. " This was
not something that happened overnight,
but took quite a bit of planning and testing.
" We know this is a big change, but it is
important to keep customers' information
secure. We think customers will find the
process very simple and intuitive - much
like other websites with user accounts. "
