What a night it was. The « Best of Swiss Apps Awards » took place in Zurich yesterday, November 2, 2022. We were also nominated with QField. And in the enterprise category, the app was so convincing, that it was awarded the highest possible price. So it brought the award « Best of Swiss Enterprise App » home to Graubünden. And as cherry on the cake: QField was also nominated as finalist in the UX/UI category!
We are extremely proud and happy about the received award. And even more when we look at the contendants that won in the other categories. We’re talking companies like SBB, Swiss Life, Switzerland Tourism and, yes, Rivella ?.
