It is an opportune time for TESDA Caraga has to revive and enhance a functional website for our clients and stakeholders. Today, almost all government agencies throughout the world are operating their services to the public using a website as an alternative way to transact with them. When the internet keeps moving forward and advancing, the agency’s services need to advance as well. If agencies do not own or operate online services as well as physical offices, they will be less accessible to those clients who do not have the luxury of time and money to transact personally at their respective business address.
There are so many valid reasons why owning and operating a website is important. Reaching your target clients in your own area is one thing, but having a website allows you to reach your target market worldwide. Many more individuals are becoming computer and internet savvy, this means to that if you want to go with the bandwagon, you need to have a website that is not only informative but functional and professional. If marketed properly and effectively, the agency can be assured of providing quality services to more clients in the area and outside of the country.
This project is launched to form part of the marketing and advocacy campaign of our programs and projects on Technical Education and Skills Development in the Region. However, it’s not good enough to just have a website; we have invested time and money into our online services. It is more important to keep the online public aware of the services we provide and how to access them by just one click.
The maintenance and upgrading of the website is another cost area that needs to be taken into consideration. New data and information on various programs need to be incorporated to the website to make it current and more effective to our clients.
The project aims to 1) Expand the reach of TESDA Caraga’s programs, projects and services to local and international clients; 2) Improve Customer Service by providing answers to questions on the website; 3) Save costs by allowing TESDA Caraga’s clients to download forms and other important documents; 4) Present a professional image for the Agency through the well-designed website and serves as a way of instilling confidence to our clients and stakeholders; 5) Promote TESDA Caraga’s services online; and 6) Gather information and generate valuable feedback to improve quality of services.
We hope that this website will be very useful to every Caraganon and to the entire Philippines for the promotion of technical education and skills development of every Filipino.
