Areas of focus for the Swiss market:

Residential customers

In a saturated market, Swisscom is relying on better and better convergence offerings to maintain its leading market position. Comprehensive entertainment offering blue is the key to this, but smart home, security and cloud services as well as second- and third-party brands are also opening up new customer segments. The new digital omni-channel offering is designed to further stimulate sales and customer satisfaction

Business customers

Swisscom is further expanding its strong position in the ICT solutions business for Business Customers through selective acquisitions and partnerships. It impresses with modular offerings in the core business, the best service and the best omni-channel offering. Combining IoT with cloud and analytics enables new growth.

 

By merging these segments into Business Customers, Swisscom offers Corporate Customers and SMEs a new modular product portfolio, even better service and maximum efficiency. Security, cloud, data centres and smart ICT solutions are the growth areas here.
