Totara targets Portuguese-speaking countries with new partnership

Totara Learning is continuing to expand its presence in the growing EMEA L&D industry with a new partnership with EDUdigital, based in Portugal.

EDUdigital will be representing Totara in both Portugal and Portuguese-speaking African countries, with offices in Portugal and Mozambique. Current customers include Standard Bank (South Africa), BCI, UEM, Unicer, Instituto Camões, Sonae and Centro Jacques Delors.

EDUdigital provides a range of Totara services including hosting, support, training, design, consultancy and development. EDUdigital can also offer custom-made development services and off-the-shelf e-learning. With backgrounds in both the education and IT sectors, they have developed specialist skills in the areas of e-learning needs analysis, implementation strategies, learning technologies, customised programming, content development and support services.

Ricardo Santos, Executive Director at EDUdigital, said: “Today, e-learning plays a major role in lifelong learning, either in the business or education context. So, we need to keep up with the latest technologies, have the right people and the know-how to play a key role on the international market.”

Andy Kirk, EMEA Channel Partner Manager at Totara Learning, said: “It is encouraging to have such an enthusiastic partner as EDUdigital on board and be involved in the key role learning technologies can play for businesses and economic growth in Portugal and related markets. We are looking forward to a successful partnership with Ricardo and his team.”

The company recently won a project for internationalisation through Portugal 2020, and plans to promote learning in Portuguese-speaking countries with cost-effective learning solutions such as Totara LMS.

In the coming years, EDUdigital will be focusing on markets such as Cape Verde, Angola and Mozambique. They also anticipate growth of more than 200% in international turnover compared to 2015 as a result of its growing presence in Portuguese-speaking African countries and new strategic partnerships.
