The first EPASS customer outside of Europe is a fact. Our partner Intaka Learning has won the first customer in South Africa. The Department of Family Medicine at the University of Stellenbosch will start working with EPASS. The portfolio is currently under development and will be implemented early 2016. Intaka Learning will provide educational training sessions prior to the implementation.
As of 1 November 2015, Intaka Learning is the official partner involved with the marketing and the implementation of EPASS in South Africa. Intaka Learning is a company based in Cape Town (South Africa) and started by Magda Ritzen and Yusri Dien. Yusri has a background in information systems and Magda is an expert in developing online learning programmes, teaching methodology and designing assessment tools.
