Electronic reporting is now available through the SAFIS program. To setup an online account, please contact Kim Lundy.
Swipe Card eDR Mobile Application: In the fall of 2016, ACCSP and MarineFisheries launched the production version of the swipe card SAFIS eDR Mobile Application for shellfish dealers reporting to the state. It is not yet available to those dealers reporting to SAFIS under federal regulations. The application is a point-of-sale reporting software that utilizes the shellfish transaction cards issued to shellfish harvesters to consummate transactions. The application will work on desktop and mobile devices running Windows, iOS, or Android platforms, and is also capable of working offline by queuing reports for submission once reconnected to WiFi or a data connection.
Although the application itself is free, dealers would need to supply their own hardware including a computer or mobile device and specific card readers which run between $45 and $100 each. Please see this document for more information on the readers. If interested in using the application, please contact Anna Webb at 978-282-0308 x115 or Kim Lundy at 978-282-0308 x117 for more information.
