Selectus solutions

The software Selectus simplifies and structures selection processes at universities and academic institutions. You can use Selectus for a wide variety of selection processes. Do you need to advertise faculty positions and select the best candidates? Or do you need to evaluate and identify the most promising projects to be funded? Or do you even need a simple tool for deciding whom to grant an award in an efficient and fair manner?

Selectus provides simple and effective support for the administration and selection committee in all of these processes, and is perfectly tailored to the procedures and workflows at universities. With Selectus, you can assist where most of the effort is spent in making decisions. This saves time, effort and money. Meanwhile, the quality, fairness and transparency of selection processes are enhanced.

Originally built by the company frentix GmbH in collaboration with the ETH Zürich, the software has been under continuous development ever since.
