Easy to introduce, user-friendly, secure Benefits of well-designed e-government solutions

Promoting dialogue and participation Networking, interaction and communication

Public administration forms a central interface between the population, the economy and politics. This important societal function is more successful if interaction between all stakeholders is simpler and more user-friendly.
Visiting public authorities, voting, acts of administration – these things can all be done electronically. This means that public administration can proceed with the same developments that characterize our daily lives and that are often common practice in the economy. It also allows greater opportunities for participation and enables public administration to meet the needs of the population today and tomorrow.

Elections and voting – it’s easy electronically New participation opportunities

Voting and elections are the foundation of direct democracy in Switzerland. With electronic vote casting, participation in the political process becomes even easier and more attractive for many people. Secure e-voting is an important component in further developing political processes in the age of digitization.

Public administration networking Closer to the needs of the population

“Digitization” doesn’t always have to be designed and implemented on a large scale at federal level. At municipality level, the practical benefits are especially advantageous for local residents. Fewer visits to the authorities, less time wasted, more information – from the online waste collection calendar to debt collection documents delivered electronically.
