SLT Digital Info Services (Pvt) Ltd (SLTDS) which is a fully-owned subsidiary of Sri Lanka Telecom PLC (SLT) has extended their expertise to the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) with the launch of its upgraded feature-rich new Website: www.basl.lk. With a wide range of web development, digital marketing and advertising services, SLTDS helps its clientele create a well-rounded-up story in order to fulfil their business goals.
Revamp of the website came as a result of BASL’s initiative to digitalize many of its functions. The new Website aims at providing a greater accessibility for its membership and the general public both locally and globally and it comes with a range of new features such as e-Shop, Payment Gateway Integration, Member Login Area enabling members to renew membership, apply for services such as car labels and register for CPD programmes and conferences and moreover it offers access to over 50 BASL webinars as well. A new online Job Bank has also been introduced.
The site is mobile-optimized to reflect the reality that many Sri Lankans access the website primarily through mobile devices.
The new website was recently launched at the closing ceremony of the National Law Conference 2021, with the participation of the President of the Court of Appeal Hon. Arjuna Obeyesekere, President BASL Mr. Kalinga Indatissa, PC, Secretary BASL Mr. Rajeev Amarasuriya and many other dignitaries.
Speaking at the launch ceremony, BASL Secretary Mr. Rajeev Amarasuriya said “the BASL has in the past 10 months converted all its professional development activities to online platforms through which the BASL has reached out to the entire membership and that the next phase was the launch of this brand-new and state-of-the-art website”. He thanked the President BASL and the other members of the management for all the support and guidance and also SLT Digital Info Services for converting the requirements of BASL into a functional and efficient website.
President BASL Mr. Kalinga Indatissa, PC said “it was an important day for BASL in its digital transformation”. He further said that the members now could benefit from the several services of BASL without having to physically visit BASL. He said that a new fully-fledged interactive website was a long-felt need for BASL and that he was glad that the project could be completed during his tenure of office and thanked the Secretary of BASL Mr. Rajeev Amarasuriya and the other officers and SLT Digital Info Services for the job well done.
Mr. Malraj Balapitiya, CEO of SLT Digital Info Services said that they were extremely happy to see BASL truly following the path of digital transformation. In addition to the newly launched website, keeping up with the trends and technology, BASL has also been able to digitize most of its activities and the recent series of webinars conducted on Zoom stands as proof which really shows their commitment towards the transformation. The fully functional website is needed especially in view of the road map laid down by the management of the BASL to better connect the 85 branch associations spreading across the country.”
