Seeking for seed investment


Competitive applications processes are widely implemented across academic and nonacademic organizations. Managing the application processes is highly sensitive for both sides.

Application processes like scholarships, tenure track positions, graduate registration, thesis submission, exchange students, dean office for student activities, overseas students registration are pillars of the academic world

  • Outdated communication infrastructures (e.g. fax, email, form) result in:
  • Poor customer experience and frustrating communication
  • Data loss and inconsistency
  • Poor basis for an effective, data-driven application assessment
  • Opaque and ineffective process management for applicants, admins, evaluators and referees result in negative effect for organization brand rating.

Our Innovation

A software package supporting a broad range of applications processes was developed and successfully implemented in The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. It is a single digital system across application’s E2E life cycle for applicants, referees, admins and committee decision makers

Refining different application processes to standard ‘LEGO’ like building blocks allows agile deployment of many different application spaces.

“Petanto” software defines a unique and standardized method which is more efficient than email, paper or form based systems.

A “Plug & Play” methodology enables a quick deployment for most cases, easy adaptations and adjustments for emerging requirements.

  • Provides high data accuracy, integrity, consistency and data-driven comparison of applicants
  • Easy adaptations for broad range of competitive application processes and adjustments for emerging requirements
  • A B2B scalable solution for different organization sizes
  • “Transparent” process for applicants, admins, judges andreferee recommendations.
