Swisscom Business Award enters its second year

Berne, 20 January 2011

Following last year's successful launch of the Swisscom Business Award, it's time to set the ball rolling for the 2011 awards. Once again entries are invited from Swiss businesses that have successfully implemented groundbreaking ICT solutions in their company. Besides prestige and recognition, total prizes worth over CHF 100,000 await the winners.

This year Swisscom is seeking outstanding best-practice examples in the categories "Service", "Commerce and Logistics" and "Construction and Industry". Targeted at large and mid-sized companies, the award will be presented to enterprises that are able to demonstrate the successful deployment of ICT solutions to simplify operating processes, improve efficiency and generate competitive advantages. The only prerequisite is that the deployed solution must come from Swisscom or a Swisscom partner.

Last year's three winners - RohrMax AG, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois CHUV and Pestalozzi + Co. AG - benefited from prize money in each category of well over CHF 35,000. The award raised the companies' profiles and prestige not only in the industry but also amongst their customers. "Our customers see the award as a sign of our powers of innovation and creativity," says a delighted Eve Schmidt, CEO of RohrMax AG.

The procedure for submitting entries for this year's Swisscom Business Award has been made even simpler: entries are submitted online in a five-step process. An external panel of experts will evaluate the submitted entries in terms of verifiable business benefits, innovation and technology. The award presentation ceremony will take place on 15 September 2011 as part of the Swiss Dialogue Arena event in Zurich.

The closing date for entries for the Swisscom Business Award 2011 is 31 March 2011.
