Microsoft Thailand recently announced the official launch of its Microsoft Online Store on Lazada Thailand.

The store is envisioned to be a one-stop shop for Microsoft’s products and a destination for exclusive offers and deals, giving Thai consumers access to the full lineup of devices, software, and services, including Surface, Lumia smartphones, Windows 10-powered laptops, tablets, and 2-in-1 devices, various hardware accessories, and the Office productivity suite.

Following a similar partnership between Microsoft and Lazada in Malaysia last year, Thailand becomes the second country in the region to welcome the Microsoft Online Store on the Lazada platform.

“The launch of the Microsoft Online Store on Lazada is an important milestone for Microsoft Thailand as the explosion of social and mobile technology has enabled the era of online shopping in Thailand,” said Orapong Thien-Ngern, general manager for Microsoft Thailand.

“Partnering with Lazada gives Microsoft an opportunity to build on our customer-centric approach and deliver our products and services to Thai customers via a platform that is already familiar to them.”

The Microsoft Online Store opening comes just days before Lazada celebrated its fourth anniversary in Thailand. Lazada has seen rapid growth in the country since its launch in March 2012.
