The tourism industry has always contributed a mammoth deal to Nepal’s overall growth and development. In tandem with tourism, the country’s hospitality industry has also witnessed great strides. Yet, there are a few challenges such as dearth in infrastructure, connectivity and marketing faced by most hotels and hospitality businesses at Nepal. The situations were more worse back in 2016 when Sarvanam Software Pvt. Ltd. observed that majority of these hotels & hospitality businesses were struggling to manage inventory, bill generation, and other aspects due to lack of automation. This indeed triggered Sarvanam Software to emerge as a reliable technology partner for Nepal’s hotels & hospitality businesses in 2016 to bestow them with automated services so that they deliver better services to their clients and ultimately contribute towards the growth of tourism industry. Post conducting multiple market surveys and researches, the company came-up with a list of hotels that were in dire need of automated solutions and thus resolved their concerns.

Pramod Parajuli (Chief Executive, Sarvanam Software) has passionately articulated many more aspects about the company, during an exclusive colloquy with CEO Insights. Here are the excerpts!
