usage of the three logos show detail hide detail
You are entitled to use the swiss made software, swiss digital services, and swiss hosting labels to advertise your products and services. Tips on correct usage can be found here.
sales promotion show detail hide detail
Switzerland is a world champion in innovation and the Swiss cross is an internationally recognized mark of quality. This is rooted in deeply defined cultural values, such as diligence, punctuality, and precision, which are based on a world-leading culture of education and training combined with a strong work ethic. Where security and critical infrastructure are concerned, every customer who buys Swiss products and services is in good hands. This is especially true in light of the increasing attention companies are paying to data sovereignty and the risks associated with digital dependency on foreign providers, cybercrime, and the preservation of individual privacy.
As Swiss-made companies, you benefit from our country’s strong reputation, while playing your role in establishing Switzerland’s lasting position in the field of future technologies.
