Data Torque Live with Solomons Transport Management System

Data Torque Goes Live with Transport Management System in Solomon Islands

Wellington based software company Data Torque working with the Solomon Islands Inland Revenue Division has successfully implemented a modernised driver and vehicle licensing system for the government of the Solomon Islands, the first credit-card sized licence of international standards to be rolled out in the island nation of 500,000.

Prime Minister Gordon Darcy Lilo was the first to be issued with a new licence after it went live last month. The new system has initially been implemented in Honiara and Guadalcanal Province.

The introduction of the Data Torque Transport Management System (TMS) enables the Inland Revenue Division of the Solomon Islands Ministry of Finance to provide improved administration of vehicle registrations and drivers licenses.

The public were captivated as news spread of the new credit card sized licences, with 250 registrations and 150 driver licences printed on the first 3 days of operation. The new TMS is similar to that used in New Zealand, with photographic identification and official vehicle registrations paving the way for reduced identity fraud.

The previous process in the Solomon Islands was heavily paper based, making it inflexible and difficult to monitor licence defaulters; a potential loss of revenue issue that will be addressed by Data Torque’s secure computerised and automated system.

The completion of the TMS project comes after further modernisation of the Solomon Island’s tax system, where Data Torque has recently upgraded the country to the latest version of its Revenue Management System - RMS7. The upgrade has been designed to assist the Solomon Islands in improving revenue collections, allowing the government to fund essential public services.

Data Torque has been active in the Solomon Islands since 2006 when its Revenue Management System was first implemented. The IRD collects around 60% of the Solomon Island’s Government revenue using RMS and now TMS.
