Responsible, sustainable conservation starts and ends with data and facts
Professional and responsible wildlife management and conservation is essential for our community to thrive, to protect our environment and natural heritage. However, to keep our traditions and natural treasures we must collect and monitor accurate data.
"The HAMS online system is a great tool to bring together several manual processes into one easy to use system. Collecting and reporting accurate data is crucial to all land management roles especially with the current scrutiny we are under from a wide variety of stakeholders. As well as making life easier for our members the HAMS system offers evidence of best practice and enhances the duty of care to guests, visitors and colleagues when working in remote areas. After using the system for a few weeks, territory and game management actually become enjoyable tasks with trends and anomalies becoming easily identifiable."
"HAMS is a modern online system, that will help us meet current and future business needs for a lettings and licences management system ensuring we maximise the benefits of technological advances. It will help support the management of wild deer and game on Coillte’s estate, through improved quality of the data collected. With the introduction of workflows it will also help streamline the tendering process and also help simplify and expedite the sharing of data captured. The system will facilitate for better communications with our users and allows them to check in and out when hunting which is a key risk control to help us manage safety on the estate."
"HAMS is designed professionally in every aspect. HAMS supports the everyday life of wildlife professionals, solving a number of issues for land and estate owners, gamekeepers, secretaries and shooters. I have personally never seen anything like this before - certainly not at an international level. As the Chairman of an Estate as well as Secretary of a County Chamber and the Master of Hunts for the county, I wholeheatedly recommend the use of HAMS to every person related to hunting and wildlife management and conservation!"
