Philips today took the next step in their digital future with Lazada. If you have not already known, Philips has been one of the most successful and iconic lighting brands in the world. As one of the leading brands, they also paved the way for smart lighting products that is energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and super durable. One example of this is their mesmerizing Philips Stadion in Eindhoven, Netherlands; home to the PSV Eindhoven Football Club.
Lazada, on the other hand, is the most popular and has been the fastest growing e-marketplaces in Southeast Asia. Recently as well, before the Chinese New Year 2017 they have expanded their product offerings and reach from China. Lazada has also always been the place to go when you need a variety of options for you shopping.
Samsung has done it, Xiaomi has done it; both with great success too I might add. It is no wonder then that Philips decided to team up with Lazada to open their first ever specialty e-store for the region of Malaysia. The launch will definitely be a step forward to not only Philips digital future and its Internet of Things (IoT) efforts, but also an indication that Malaysia is ready for a digital transformation. With the exponential growth expectation within these few years for Malaysia’s e-commerce revenue, it makes plenty of sense too for Philips.
This year also Philips aims to push their ‘Let’s Get Connected’ theme. Managing Director of Philips Malaysia and Singapore, Alok Ghose mentions that this partnership fits perfectly with their theme as well. He says also that Philips will be introducing a whole range of smart and sustainable LED lighting solutions to its customers through this partnership.
