"With the launch of this service, we can now provide online information on all our training products and their schedules," said Datec chief executive officer Bhanu Sud.
"Customers can also register for courses and make secure and immediate payment through credit cards.
"This service is designed for speed, convenience and security and will enable our DLC's to provide superior services to our customers."
Online retail has become a major source of revenue for businesses globally and customers can be assured quality of service and security of their transactions with the launch of this service.
Datec customers will also be able to pay online in their currency of choice, through a new product, ANZ eGateä, launched today by ANZ, using Datec as a pilot.
ANZ eGateä is a secure electronic payment gateway that allows merchants to securely accept and process online customer payments by credit card and gives customers the option of paying in their preferred currency.
ANZ head of retail in PNG MKV Nair said: "This product is in direct response to feedback from ANZ business customers who said they wanted to give consumers the option of paying for goods or services online using their currency of choice.
"It's ideal for businesses of any size that are looking to accept credit card payments online."
Explaining the concept further, Mr Sud said: "The DLC and ANZ systems have inbuilt security features to ensure all credit card transactions made for the DLC are fully secure."
The technology behind this has been jointly developed and verified by ANZ and Datec.
"We look forward to continuing to work with Datec to develop more financial and business products to the market," Mr Nair said.
"We believe the introduction of online payments for goods and services for customers while using their currency of choice will have a significant impact on the PNG retail industry."
