In a new report focusing on the global tertiary e-textbook and multimedia market, South African edtech start-up Snapplify has been named one of the top six higher education players worldwide.
Snapplify’s traction in the higher education market has grown considerably, spurred in part by the pandemic and, more broadly, by the pressure on institutions to embrace digital tools and prepare for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Penny de la Plain, Snapplify’s higher education specialist, attributes the company’s growth to three factors: its robust technology, its strong partnerships with publishers and booksellers, and its excellent support team.
“Snapplify’s technology is built for education – it’s simple to use and it also integrates with other tools, including hundreds of LMSes, allowing for an easier, frictionless learning experience,” explains De la Plain.
Snapplify has partnered with hundreds of publishers to provide key academic content to institutions and boasts the largest network of independent booksellers in Africa.
“Working closely with publishers and booksellers, we’ve created a one-stop shop for books. Institutions and their students can order all their digital and hardcopy textbooks using one platform, without needing to shop around or work with various suppliers,” says De la Plain.
The Snapplify Engage platform also comes with a free e-library. The integrated platform has been a real game-changer for universities, colleges, and TVET institutions looking to ramp up their digital library and learning offerings for students and staff.
The final key to success? Support, stresses De la Plain.
“For many educational institutions, transitioning to digital tools can be difficult. I have no doubt that Snapplify’s ongoing, hands-on support is a big reason more and more institutions are migrating to Snapplify.”
With offices across Africa, as well as in Europe, the UK and the US, Snapplify is considered as the number one higher education e-book provider in Africa, working with the continent’s most prestigious universities and TVET institutions, all of which have a strong history of student book purchasing.
Snapplify is at the forefront of edtech solutions in Africa and specialises in enabling digital learning via the largest digital education marketplace in Africa. Thousands of educational institutions across Africa use Snapplify every day to teach, learn, and access educational content.
