Sharp Philippines Helps In Making the World a Better Place
Committed to making the world a better place, Sharp Philippines – now on its 33rd year in the country – continues its tradition of introducing innovations that aim to improve the lives of Filipino families nationwide. The company does this through its lineup of impressive home appliances and its array of initiatives that seek to capture the hearts of Filipino customers.
Sharp Digital TV: 1st Digital TV with EWBS and BML Data Broadcast
As a way of providing service and innovation to the country with the Digital TV transition, Sharp Philippines offers the first ISDB-T TV fully equipped with the two digital standards: the EWBS (Emergency Warning Broadcast System) and BML (Broadcast Markup Language) Data Broadcasting. The Integrated Services Digital Broadcast-Terrestrial or ISDB-T is a Japanese digital broadcasting system that was chosen by the Philippine government because of EWBS, a special disaster warning feature that can send alerts to all ISDB-T-ready devices. As of this writing, Sharp Digital TV remains the only TV in the Philippines to be fully equipped with all the features of ISDB-T.
Sharp considers service as part of its innovative lineup. It has now fully revamped its customer service with the introduction of Omotenashi. Omotenashi is a uniquely Japanese concept of hospitality that turns service into a personalized experience. With this philosophy, Sharp is renovating its service centers all over the country. They started with its Davao City branch. This is to provide a more convenient and comfortable experience for customers. Sharp aims to provide even better service in its 142 authorized service centers and 22 service center branches all over the country. Customers can expect a quick turnaround time for repairs under the 1-1-1 initiative, which promises a one-hour revert, one-day response to queries, and one-week repair.
Sharp Philippines Corporate Social Responsibility
Sharp Philippines has a strong Corporate Social Responsibility program that regularly works on giving back to the country. Through its “Sharp Cares” program, Sharp Philippines and its employees donated various relief items to the Philippine Red Cross-Rizal Chapter. These are the victims of the destructive 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit the Visayas region. The company was involved in the “Juan for Tree: Sierra Madre Tree-Planting Project,".
As part of its efforts to educate the public, Sharp Philippines regularly reaches out to grade schools. It aims to teach simple ways on how to take care of the environment. Primarily through the Three R concept: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. They donate new and slightly-used books to the Haven for Children in Muntinlupa City.
Sharp Philippines aims to continue providing a better life for the Filipino family with its innovative products and service. This is a commitment pushed by Sharp through its “Our Brand, Our Pride” philosophy.
