5 Reasons… to Go Digital

0415 Digital Product Offer Email Header

The PADI Digital Product Suite is a collection of industry-leading products designed to modernise and enrich the learning experience of students and PADI Professionals. Here’s 5 reasons why you should make the switch from paper to digital:

#1 – It’s the way divers learn today. These days, many customers are permanently attached to their digital devices: mobile phones, tablets and laptops. By offering PADI’s Digital Products, you’ll be able to offer these students a fully interactive and highly engaging way of learning that will live up to their modern day expectations of learning in the fast paced digital world.

The Benefit to You: Engaged customers will enjoy their experience and be more likely to recommend your business.

#2 – You’ll have the flexibility to order on-demand. PADI Digital Products can be purchased through the PADI e-Shop (available via the PADI Pros’ Site), so you’ll be able to enjoy 24/7 access 365 days a year. Because they’ll appear in your PADI Online eShop MockupProcessing Center account almost instantly, you’ll be ready to register your next student without interruption – anytime of the day or night. This means you can order products to suit your students’ demands.

The Benefit to You: Purchasing materials as and when you need them and removes the need to tie up business resources in supplies of extra stock.

#3 – No shipping means less costs. Because PADI Digital Products are digital, that means there’s no paper involved – the product is delivered to you electronically via the e-Shop and PADI Online Processing Center, and from there, delivered to your student via the PADI Library App.

The Benefit to You: No physical product means no need to ship products, which reduces overheads and helps keeps your costs to a minimum.

#4 – Staff and students will benefit from enriched teaching opportunities. With interactive content, quizzes, videos and intuitive gesture-based navigation, PADI Diigtal Products offer an enriched learning experience. Excited students are usually waiting for knowledge development to finish so they can get to the water, but with this engaging way of learning, they’ll be immersed in the theory, and potentially tricky topics will be transformed into a fun experience for everyone.

The Benefit to You: Not only does it lead to more effective teaching schedules but students will want to keep on learning – and diving – with you.

#5 – It’s kinder to the environment. With the ever-growing impact of conservation charities such as Project AWARE, and with divers’ being encouraged from all sides to protect and preserve the natural environment, it makes sense for Dive Centers to PA_0conduct themselves in line with the greener values of the diving community. By using PADI Digital Products, you’ll be using less paper, and using less paper will reduce physical waste as well as help to save the world’s rainforests.

The Benefit to You: You and your customers will appreciate – and feel good about- being able to teach and learn in a way which reduces the impact on the environment.
