Wazzup Pilipinas!

No matter how hard we try, keeping our clothes looking new is always a challenge. Regular wear and tear and the constant washing take a toll on the color and fabric, making our best clothes old-looking, its colors faded and at times, the stitching frayed.

Often, we blame it on the detergent or the way our clothes are handled when washed. However, what we may not know is that the washing machine we use may be one of the reasons our clothes age quickly.

With this, Beko, one of Europe’s most popular appliance brand, brings innovative laundry solutions with its advanced line of washing machines. Its innovative Aquawave™ Technology provide gentle yet effective washing conditions for all garments, making them last longer.

This breakthrough technology is inspired by nature as it replicates the gentle and effective power motion of waves that protect your clothes from wearing out.

The specially designed drum pattern gently carries the laundry away like a wave from the drum. Thus, garments move smoothly around the washing machine. Paddles with wave form also contribute to the gentle care of your laundry. Finally, the curve on the door glass provides more mixing effect by helping the laundry to move more easily. Thus, the need for energy is reduced.

“We understand how important it is for people to preserve their clothes. As a leading brand of home and lifestyle improvement solutions, Beko aims to be the official partner of the everyday by addressing the many needs of our customers,” said Dyeun Zapanta, Beko Philippines Sales, and Marketing Head. “Our innovative technologies are a result of our understanding of the needs of today’s consumers.”

SAP SE said it has harnessed its digital core, bold technologies of the future and its expertise in ERP to help customers make everything digital, programmable and smarter. This is part of the company’s overall strategy to drive its innovation agenda and support customers’ digital transformation and journey to the cloud through its portfolio of solutions.

“As governments and businesses work towards a digitally-enabled ASEAN as outlined by the ASEAN ICT Masterplan 2020, we see plenty of opportunities for organizations from the public and private sectors alike to harness the power of data. In the digital economy today, data is the new gold for digital enterprises. SAP allows organizations to act instantly through real-time, data-driven insights to deliver delightful, meaningful experiences to their customers, employees, suppliers and partners,” said Claus Andresen, President and Managing Director, SAP Southeast Asia.

The ASEAN ICT Masterplan (AIM) 2020 was formulated and announced by telecommunications and IT ministers from ASEAN member states in November 2015 during the 15th ASEAN Telecommunications and Information Technology Ministers Meeting in Vietnam. The five-year plan provides guidelines governments and businesses to drive the digital economy in ASEAN from 2016 to 2020.

In the Philippines, the government has set forward a “Philippine Digital Strategy” (PDS), a nationwide digital roadmap as outlined by the Department of Information and Communications Technology. The vision of the PDS is to move the Philippines towards being “a digitally empowered, innovative, globally competitive and prosperous society where everyone has reliable, affordable and secure information access in the Philippines”. Under this roadmap, the government is calling upon the private sector and civil society to partner with the government in developing the country in all the elements of ICT.

According to IDC, organizations that capitalize and analyze all relevant data and deliver actionable information could achieve an extra $430 billion (on a worldwide basis) in productivity benefits over their less analytically oriented peers by 2020. "As more organizations in South East Asia become digitally-connected, they cannot escape this reality. The increasing volume and detail of information captured by enterprises, the rise of multimedia, social media, and the Internet of Things (IoT) will fuel exponential growth in data for the foreseeable future. Governments and businesses alike will need to be ready to leverage information and turn them into a key premise of competition, supporting new influxes of efficiency development, advancement, and customer surplus," says Chwee Kan Chua, Global Research Director, BDA and Cognitive/AI.

“Secretary Tugade aims for this Drivers' Academy to become a very good venue for PUV drivers to be reminded of the basic traffic rules and regulations. But, this time they should learn it by heart as thousands of public transport commuters depend on them,” Orbos said.

He said it is imperative that all PUV drivers follow basic road rules and know the various traffic signs to be able to bring their passengers to their respective destinations safely.

“We have to make sure that all PUV drivers on the road know these traffic regulations in order to avoid accidents, and to also ease the traffic situation on our thoroughfares,” Orbos said.

According to the LTFRB, around 100 PUV drivers participated in the initial training seminar, where they will be lectured on basic road safety, driving courtesy, traffic rules and regulations, and re-acquaint them on the various traffic and directional signs.

Certificates of completion will be given to PUV drivers who would undergo and finish the one day training seminar conducted by instructors and resource persons from the LTFRB.
