Who are you and what do you do?

Ergon is a Swiss leader in leveraging digitalisation to create unique client benefits - from the initial idea right through to market success.

Our highly-qualified experts develop user-friendly, custom software as well as proven, off-the-shelf products that are deployed worldwide by clients in a variety of sectors. To design ‘smart' solutions that meet complex requirements, we combine a wide range of technological, security and business skills.

What plans does Ergon have for the future?

Our mission is to empower smart people with smart software. We achieve this in four ways:

1. Create, as a trusted partner, sustainable, competitive technology advantage for ambitious clients that wish to chart their own future.

2. Develop Switzerland's most user-friendly solutions as well as proven products deployed worldwide, driving innovation in society.

3. Continuously evolve, learning quickly and actively, seeking new knowledge to excel and inspire with our expertise. We invest in the next generation and accompany them on their way into the future.

4. Keep sustainability in mind. We make decisions that pursue long-term business goals - for employees, customers and partners.

Why do you support VIScon?

Interacting with the next generation, nurturing new talent, learning from them and sharing our own knowledge - that's what we care about. And VIScon gives us the opportunity to achieve these goals.

We had the privilege of supporting the VIScon event over the past years as one of the event's main sponsors. We are convinced that it provides significant added value as well as in-depth insight into a wide range of topics and practical techniques.

Ergon has committed to shaping a successful tomorrow for the next generation - and that's exactly what we are doing. We are keen to share our experience with you, whether on technical or entrepreneurial matters, and to answer any questions you may have about working life. We look forward to comparing notes at a successful VIScon 2023.
