Posted on May 21, 2011

Chilliquest starts work on Tourism Council of Bhutan’s Tashel System (Tourism Information Management and Costing System) starting this month. It is scheduled for completion in December. TCB initiated this to promote the Royal Government’s emphasis on e-governance. It involves developing an online system to process visas for tourists visiting the country, processing payment and generating statistical and analysis reports. There will be two components in the system: first, an online system, accessible by tour operators in the country to apply for tourists’ visas, and the other an internal application for accounting and processing visa. The internal application will be used by TCB and Department of Immigration. Druk Air can also access the system to verify tourist visas. Tour costing and invoicing is to be automatically generated by the system based on the applications submitted by the tour operators and endorsed by TCB.

The second software that Chilliquest is developing this month is a hotel management system, a comprehensive system for management of a hotel. The system will be developed as a product covering the requirements of hotels in Bhutan and will be designed as per accounting and taxation rules prevailing in Bhutan. It will broadly cover reservation, billing, accounts and inventory. The project is scheduled for completion in August.
