early: testing the future
Products and services in development

Anchor Navigation

Swiss Post gives products and services in the development phase the early Label and tests them with interested customers. They actively help design these new products/services with their feedback.

What is the early Label?

  • New Swiss Post products and services are given the early Label and can be tested by interested customers even from the early stages of development. This customer feedback supports development processes which satisfy the needs of the market and customers.
  • Customer contact and support are provided directly by the development teams for the products and services with the early Label. This guarantees an intensive exchange of ideas with customers.
  • The availability of early services and products may be linked to special conditions, e.g. technical requirements, depending on their level of development.
  • All products and services featuring the early Label meet the basic requirements in terms of security, data protection and quality.

Below you can find an overview of our current early products and services.

Pay expenses online in advance
Receive parcels from abroad even when you’re not at home

Orders from abroad may incur expenses for customs and VAT, which need to be paid upon delivery. Swiss Post is testing a convenient solution using advance online payment. This means collection notes are no longer needed if the recipient is absent or wishes to pay in cash.

Responses to social issues

Discover stories and contributions on current issues – some inspiring, some moving, some informative. We don’t just want to be storytellers – we are also interested in hearing our customers’ opinions and ideas on these issues and look forward to having discussions with them.

Digital Inbox
Receive letters anywhere, anytime

This Swiss Post service enables SMEs to access their entire digitized mail inbox anytime and anywhere. The solution also provides companies with the option of distributing their mail individually by e-mail or feeding it into their internal network.

Live ticker for amateur football

We at Swiss Post work together with municipalities, and aim to make communication easier for them and support digital progress. Organizations, such as sports clubs, are an integral part of community life. But municipalities haven’t yet found a good solution for sharing news and information about their live games. French start-up Score n'co has developed an application and website that may help. The app can be used to keep tabs on matches and competitions, particularly those in the amateur leagues, with users able to do live text commentary on games and take on the role of sports commentator.
