A new and upgraded version of the Croatian National Tourist Board’s eVisitor system, which is intended for the registration of tourist traffic and for the calculation and control of tourist tax collection, has been published.
The upgrade is part of the Croatian Digital Tourism project, which is carried out by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports and co-financed by the EU within the Operational Program Competitiveness and Cohesion 2014-2020 from the European Regional Development Fund.
“One of the segments of the Croatian Digital Tourism project is the upgrade of the award-winning eVisitor system in order to be even more efficient and better adapted to the needs of users. New functionalities have been introduced that will improve business processes, so it will no longer be necessary to physically go to the tourist board to register a non-commercial facility (holiday homes), and communication between landlords and tourist boards has been improved. Ultimately, the Croatian Digital Tourism project will create a complete digital story – a set of innovative tools to facilitate the business of stakeholders in the tourism system. The Croatian Digital Tourism Project, along with eVisitor, envisages the development and improvement of public e-services in tourism through TURegistar – Central Register for Hospitality and Tourism Services, TUStart – Registration of activities and business start-ups in the field of tourism and hospitality, TURiznicu – Allocation system available support in tourism and Croatia.hr – Tourist – information portal,” said Minister of Tourism and Sports Nikolina Brnjac.
The eVisitor system has positioned Croatia at the very top of the world in terms of innovative technological solutions in tourism, and the most significant innovations include a completely new design that is in line with the design of the Croatian Digital Tourism project.
Also, it is possible to display basic information about the tourist membership fee, download payment slips for the tourist membership fee, and it is easier to edit and post pictures of accommodation facilities on the Croatia.hr portal.
“The eVisitor system is a domestic Croatian product that makes our country unique in the world. That this is an exceptional technological solution is confirmed by the award of the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), which this project won in the category of innovation in research and technology. Now we have further upgraded and improved the system, functions have been introduced that will further contribute to the further development of the Croatian tourism sector, while for many users the system will be an even more powerful tool in developing tourist offers, ie defining marketing and promotional activities,” said Croatian National Tourist Board director Kristjan Staničić.
Additional connections with other systems and institutions are also planned, such as the Joint Land Registry and Cadastre Information System, the State Inspectorate, the OIB system, etc., while connecting with the Central Tourist Register will significantly change the current process of registering commercial facilities, and the business of tourist boards, renters and other users of the eVisitor system will be greatly facilitated and improved.
