SCHUHFRIED was the first company in the world to develop a psychological test system: the Vienna Test System (VTS). What began in the 1950s with a test device designed to assess fitness to drive has now grown into a software package containing 120 different computerized psychological tests (intelligence tests, ability tests, personality tests, etc.) and optional accessories (hardware to measure psychomotor functions, sensorimotor functions, etc.). More than 5,600 business customers in 67 countries operating in the fields of HR, neuropsychology, traffic psychology and sport psychology have now opted for the Vienna Test System. In terms of the number of tests administered the Vienna Test System is still the leading test software for psychological assessment. More than 13 million tests are administered using the Vienna Test System each year – for recruitment and aptitude assessment, to assess fitness to drive, for neuropsychological and clinical purposes, in research projects and in high-level sport.
