WIDE Services, certified Moodle Partner in Greece since 2013, has announced its expansion to neighboring Cyprus, becoming the first national partner for the second time. A press release at moodle.com revealed details about the deal.

As CEO Yiannis Arapoglou asserts the move is a “natural progression.” The business and academic ties between the two countries are strong, bolstered by a common language and millennia of joint history. Many of the existing WIDE customers already have a presence in the island nation, such as Vodafone and Kleeman elevators. Other clients of WIDE include the Athens International Airport, the Hellenic Aerospace Industry, and Dixons South-East Europe.

The island of Cyprus is the third largest in the Mediterranean. It has just over one million citizens, 77% of which are of Greek descent. Greek and Turkish are the two official languages for the island.

With the announcement, Moodle Pty Ltd will receive 10% of WIDE revenues from Cypriot customers. In exchange, WIDE can advertise the partnership and use the official Moodle branding. WIDE Services offer “full stack” solutions, from hosting and server infrastructure to learning design and development.

At the time of writing, 83 sites from Cyprus were registered at moodle.net/sites.
