Pargo closes the gap on distance learning with PURCO SA registrationThe COVID-19 pandemic interrupted the learning of over 9 million tertiary school students. The education sector needed to move fast in changing the way we learn.
Post-pandemic, universities and colleges across the country continue to maintain a distance learning environment by continuing to deliver critical learning material to students across the country, wherever they are.
Millions of students still don’t have access to quality education. Challenges students face daily include not living near enough to a learning facility or simply that they don’t have an easily accessible address, or location to accept delivery of critical learning material.
For the first time, learning institutions have the opportunity to engage with students in every corner of South Africa through reliable home delivery, conveniently located pickup points and an easy returns process.
Pargo is unlocking access to education with over 3000 Pargo Pickup Points. Distance learning students as well as on-campus students can find pickup points in large popular retailers including Clicks, Edgars, Freshstop at Caltex, Lewis Stores, and hundreds of smaller stores in major cities, further outlying areas and informal settlements across the country.
Besides an impressive 100% first-attempt delivery success rate to Pargo Pickup Points, Pargo’s home delivery solution also boasts a 90% first-attempt delivery success rate, meaning students will never miss a syllabus again. Comprehensive SMS and email notifications throughout the parcel delivery journey allows students to keep track of their delivery every step of the way.Say goodbye to surprise courier visits!
Pargo’s easy paperless returns process allows students to return study material, curriculum work or applications without hassle at selected Pargo Points.
In the final stages of registering with PURCO SA, the purchasing consortium of the Higher Educational sector in South Africa, Pargo is partnering with learning institutions, both public and private, in creating access to education for students no matter where they live.
