The panel of the famous Swisscom Business Award, already in its sixth year, has been looking for Swiss companies and institutions that have implemented groundbreaking solutions in the field of information and communication technology (ICT). The panel award and the People’s Choice Award were presented at the Swisscom Dialog Arena at the KKL in Lucerne on 3 November 2015. The delighted winners are UBS AG and Zweifel Pomy-Chips AG.
Who is leading the way when it comes to combining benefits for businesses, sustainability and technology? Which company’s solution won the most public votes? UBS AG and Zweifel Pomy-Chips AG managed to see off some strong competition and were delighted to receive their awards.
“By outsourcing the ubs.com website and its company Intranet, UBS AG not only successfully implemented a hugely ambitious project, but also created a tool for its marketing and communication department that enables its team to concentrate fully on innovating, offering advice and carrying out strategic projects.”

UBS AG hoped to gain flexibility, agility and cost-efficiency when it decided to outsource the operation of its website www.ubs.ch and company Intranet to Swisscom. The new, scalable and secure content management system not only ensures that data is hosted centrally in accordance with the requirements of the Swiss financial market, but also provides high flexibility and shorter time to market.
The solution developed by Zweifel Pomy-Chips AG was the public’s favourite and, with 2022 votes, left the other finalists trailing behind.
The increasing pressure of competition, a growing product range and more complex customer demands. The analogue system used by Zweifel Pomy-Chips AG was no longer capable of meeting these challenges. Zweifel’s 130 sales representatives can access all the information they need at any time via a specially developed app. This means greater efficiency, fewer errors and the ability to react flexibly to customers’ wishes.
