Edalex is thrilled to announce a partnership with Interfolio, the leading faculty information system company, to better support academics in Australia and New Zealand. Through this partnership, institutions across Australia and New Zealand can now access Interfolio’s innovative Faculty Information System, a first-of-its-kind platform streamlining shared governance and academic data collection processes.
“As a company, our mission is to use technology to support and highlight the work of academics in order to provide insights and action that further the institutional mission,” said Andrew Rosen, CEO at Interfolio. “We’re excited to partner with Edalex, an organisation that shares our passion for education innovation, to extend our platform’s reach to Australia and New Zealand, and support academics in the region.”
Through Interfolio and Edalex’s partnership, educational institutions in Australia and New Zealand will be able to utilise Interfolio’s globally-implemented suite of solutions for the hiring, review, and promotion processes of academic staff, as well as activity reporting to provide critical analytical insight into the scholarly engine powering the institution. Additionally, institutions will have access to local account management, implementation services, and unified customer support.
Interfolio’s Faculty Information System is the first-ever engagement platform to harness academic activity, decisions, and data for institutional insight. The suite of solutions is driven by a need to help academics tell their professional and scholarly story, as well as to overcome the arduous management of shared governance and data collection processes on campus.
“Edalex’s mission is to ‘help put innovation into education’ and we believe Interfolio is uniquely positioned to deliver that to institutions across the ANZ region,” said Dan McFadyen, Managing Director of Edalex. “Their products recognise the critical role that academics play in the institutional ecosystem and provide them with intuitive tools to make their experience more rewarding and productive.”

openRSD was released by Edalex in 2022 to help create, store and share rich skill descriptors (RSDs) and RSD collections. openRSD uses Edalex’s open source technology stack to create locally- and globally-relevant libraries of RSDs that are open to all contributors and consumers. RSDs are the building blocks of a skills-driven labour market. They structure skills data, add context around a particular skill and are both human and machine readable. RSDs bring equity to the learner and the skills ecosystem and provide an even playing field for skills recognition.
