Swiss SMEs recognize the relevance of digitization. They can work more productively and create value more efficiently. They can use digital products to expand customer relationships and tap into new markets and sales channels – such as through e-commerce and digital marketing. Digital tools simplify market analysis or assessments of customer potential.
S-GE offers Swiss SMEs information, consultation and a global network on the topic of digital export. SMEs can receive practical tips through e-learning on the platform “Export Digital,” the joint initiative of S-GE and Google.
Switzerland: Digitization as a locational advantage
Switzerland is one of the most competitive and innovative countries in the world. It has also made a name for itself as a digital business location. Not least thanks to its high educational standards, highly qualified workforce and close networking of research and business, international companies and tech firms including the internet giant Google have set up offices in Switzerland.
Ideal conditions for digital initiatives
Country-wide initiatives such as digitalswitzerland bring together public authorities, companies and interest groups and influence the future of Switzerland as a digital location. Moreover, the Federal Council passed a digital strategy in 2016 and is creating optimum conditions. The strategy sets different priorities (business, data, exchange with other countries) and promotes dialog between public authorities, business, academia and research and civil society.
