New NLIS website promises to make life easier for producers

Jon Condon, August 3, 2015

The National Livestock Identification System has launched a new website with an updated and simple navigation system that makes finding information more intuitive, new account creation and login capabilities, and an enhanced design suitable for use on smart phones and tablets.

The new website provided a superior user experience for both new and existing NLIS account holders, NLIS chairman John Wyld said.

“The implementation of a straight forward and easy to use system for user registration and log in was at the top of our wish list, while new content will help producers and other NLIS participants find information quickly and efficiently,” Mr Wyld said.

NLIS is Australia’s system for identifying cattle, sheep and goats with a permanent device or tag designed to remain with an animal for life. It plays a critical role in the integrity system that underpins Australia’s international reputation as a producer of safe red meat.

Producers will be able to stay up-to-date with the latest news about the NLIS, and find answers to important NLIS-related questions, such as how to record livestock movements or buy NLIS devices.

“The website succinctly links to the NLIS database and therefore underpins our objectives for traceability within the red meat livestock industry, and reinforces our commitment to providing the best user experience possible for NLIS participants,” Mr Wyld said.

“By shifting our focus onto the tasks producers need to do for the NLIS, we’re demonstrating how it can work effectively and in a time efficient manner.”

Key features include:

  • A simple navigation system that makes finding out information about the NLIS easy and intuitive
  • New ‘FAQ’ and content areas
  • A more attractive, contemporary design suitable for producers to use on the go via mobile phone or tablet
  • Enhanced account creation, forgotten password and login capabilities.

NLIS Manager Stephen Doughty said the website had been relaunched as part of an upgrade of the NLIS database, and when completed, the upgraded database would offer greater value for users.

“Since the inception of the NLIS in 1999, we have played a vital role in identifying and tracing Australia’s livestock and in reflecting Australia’s commitment to biosecurity and food safety,” Mr Doughty said.

“To continue to deliver value to producers and to take advantage of newer and better technologies, NLIS Ltd has launched a technology upgrade project of which the new web site was a leading priority.”
