Missouri Department of Conservation Introduces New Online Permit Auto-Renewal Service

The Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) has introduced a new online Permit Auto-Renewal service designed to make renewing Missouri hunting, fishing, and trapping permits easier and more convenient.

Sovereign Sportsman Solutions is a proud partner of the Missouri Department of Conservation and built and manages the agency’s Hunt/Fish licensing and permitting system, as well as its Event Management system.

“The Permit Auto-Renewal Service increases our ability to meet the convenience needs of our customers and the business needs of our agency,” according to MDC Director Sara Parker Pauley. “Permit customers are provided with a service that is convenient, useful, and relevant to today’s busy schedules.

“The bonus to MDC is how Auto-Renewal contributes to our R3 efforts, allowing us to remain directly engaged with our hunters and anglers through renewal of their permits and other marketing opportunities,” said Pauley. “With Auto-Renewal, customers spend less time in line or online and more time in nature.”

Bill Creighton, Sovereign’s Chief Marketing Officer, noted that Auto-Renewal is an expected part of today’s retail consumer experience.

“MDC’s Auto-Renewal service is a great example of the convenience that consumers expect and enjoy with a wide variety of subscription products such as Netflix, Spotify, and iTunes,” said Creighton.

“We live in a convenience-driven world and Auto-Renewal is a tool that ensures our favorite services will continue uninterrupted,” Creighton continued. “Hunting and fishing are major recreational activities that MDC customers enjoy, and they now have that same level of convenience with these outdoor experiences. We are pleased to have helped MDC implement this great service for their customers.”

Licensing and Permitting Auto-Renewal is designed to increase customer engagement and retention and is just one of many marketing programs that Sovereign offers as standard system features to help agency partners grow their relevancy and revenue.

MDC permit buyers can enroll in Auto-Renewal at mdc.mo.gov/buypermits during an online permit purchase or by using the “Manage Your Account” feature. They can learn more about Permit Auto-Renewal at huntfish.mdc.mo.gov/permits/permit-auto-renewal.
