SOUTH AFRICA’S INSTITUTIONS STRUGGLE TO DELIVER EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS DURING COVID-19 CRISIS

While most training and education providers across South Africa collaborate with students digitally, the delivery, collection and returns of educational materials like stationery, text books, assignments, certificates, reports and student cards remain a challenge.

With Pargo’s convenient Pick-up Point delivery, real-time tracking, country-wide coverage, as well as clear and consistent customer notifications, education providers are able to reach even the most under-digitalised students. Pargo is South Africa’s leading Click & Collect solution with Pick-up Points across urban and rural areas nationwide. Pargo Pick-up Points are based at stores like Clicks, Freshstop at Caltex and Spar grocery stores.

“The Pargo team is efficient and professional. Their process was flexible enough to accommodate our internal processes.
