Innovation

Creating experiences
that win our hearts

“What will be the next big thing?” This question is on the minds of numerous technology-driven companies desperate to make a difference for the long term. Yet many technical innovations fail. That’s why, when we develop innovations, we work in an agile, people-focused way. Our aim is to create added value through experiences that inspire.

Many of our innovations are not directly visible. Our investments in the Internet, for example. Or our shops, services and offers. We often develop new opportunities with partners through new joint ventures. Here are some examples. 


Swisscom nova

Our label for products in development

These days, we bring new ideas and products to the market early, almost as beta versions, so that, together with interested customers, we can develop them further until they reach market maturity. We give these applications our ‘nova’ label. It goes without saying that our ‘nova’ applications are subject to our usual strict guidelines as regards security, data protection and quality.
