The CRM solution will be added soon and, in addition, the proposal will be extended in 2019 to Romandie and finally to Ticino in 2020.
The companies that are participating are proud of the first responses after the launch of Swiss21.org. Walter Regli (pictured), Managing Director of Swiss21.org said: "Initial feedback from users is very positive and we are looking forward to expanding the offer for free further to make it happen. It is easier for Swiss small businesses to move into digitalization. " With up to 2100 documents / one year, 2100 articles in the store, 2100 contacts and 21 users, the offer is free for the entrepreneur. In addition, the participating software providers are committed to keeping the free use in the longer term.
