Credit Suisse evaluates and classifies its IT providers every year based on skills, quality, risk, price and the business relationship in general. This year the bank used a scorecard process to whittle down its leading providers to six finalists - and in the end Swisscom was named "IT Strategic Supplier of the Year 2008". Swisscom provides Credit Suisse with services in the fields of telecommunications and IT infrastructure as well as in the development of business applications. Urs Schaeppi, Head of Corporate Business at Swisscom, accepted the award: "It is a great honour for Swisscom to receive the IT Supplier Award 2008 from Credit Suisse. Our more than 100-year business relationship with Credit Suisse is the basis of this success. Credit Suisse has developed into one of our largest and most innovative customers. The very successful Swisscom Services, which now also benefits many other Swisscom customers, originated from numerous groundbreaking projects that we have implemented together over the last few years.
