We had the privilege of working with a Profit Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) Partnership to develop web app, mobile app and a Desktop app that culminated in a groundbreaking digital storage system. This blog dives into the challenges we faced, the regulatory landscape of the FFL industry, and how our expertise enabled us to overcome these hurdles.
Technologies and Tools Used:
Our journey with our Profit FFL Partner involved facing numerous challenges, with the most prominent being the intricate and ever-evolving regulations that govern FFL businesses. These strict regulations posed a significant hurdle, as they required careful navigation to ensure compliance. Despite this, we were able to transform initial discussions into a fully realized product in just seven months. Through our lean development approach, we helped our client minimize overall costs and maximize efficiency.
Challenges We Overcame
In the FFL industry, regulations have experienced a seismic shift in recent years. What was once a predominantly paper-based industry reliant on traditional filing cabinets had to embrace digital transformation due to stricter rules. This is where our expertise in development and digital solutions came into play.
FFLs must complete a Form when customers purchase firearms, and they are responsible for storing this document for a minimum of twenty years. In the past, FFLs filled out these forms by hand on paper, but changes in regulations now permit the use of software, simplifying the process. However, FFLs still had to print and store physical copies.
To ensure compliance with regulations, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) meticulously reviews the digital storage solution and conducts mock inspections. Each time an FFL wishes to gain ATF approval for digital storage, they must obtain a separate variance.
Our partnership resulted in the development of a cutting-edge digital storage system that allows our Profit FFL Partner to securely store, manage, and access these essential Forms while complying with all ATF regulations.
