Wireless services provider Smart is bolstering the digital learning tools of De La Salle Philippines (DLSP) in the new normal for education.
Together with parent company PLDT, the country’s largest integrated telco, Smart is setting up an e-commerce platform for DLSP called the Animo Smart Store. It is a customized portal that will make it convenient for students and staff to browse through Smart’s connectivity solutions via a link on the official website of De La Salle schools across the country.
DLSP is the network of Lasallian schools in the Philippines established to facilitate collaborations among the schools, which includes mission schools as well as universities and colleges. Over 80,000 students from 16 member-schools across the country, as well as faculty members and non-teaching personnel, will gain access to exclusive deals and offers for the De La Salle community not available at PLDT-Smart physical stores and official online shops.
“The partnership provides a one-stop-shop where the school and students can conveniently get everything that suits their needs at prices that wouldn’t normally be available to them. Animo Smart Store has also given Lasallians a store they can identify with and be proud of,” said Edgar Chua, president, De La Salle Philippines.
“With connectivity critical in ensuring delivery and access to learning content, the Animo Smart Store enables members of DLSP with customized and special connectivity packages that will be easy and convenient for their students to access,” said Jovy Hernandez, president and CEO, ePLDT and SVP abd head for PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups.
“The Animo Smart Store is a convenient gateway for DLSP students and teachers to browse through Smart’s connectivity solutions. They will also enjoy exclusive discounts for prepaid load and wireless devices such as mobile phones and Smart Bro pocket WiFi. We’re also waiving shipping fees for purchases made on the platform,” said Jane Basas, SVP and head of Consumer Business–Wireless at Smart.
