The Ark Foundation supports Valais companies in their digital transformation

Thanks to a program launched at the end of 2023, The Ark Foundation is supporting the digital transformation of companies in Valais, in collaboration with local IT companies. Today, digitalization is a major challenge for business development, and this joint effort between The Ark and the canton's IT players aims to offer significant support to the Valaisan economic tissue. Support amounting to CHF 4900.- is available for SMEs embarking on a digital transformation.


"This acceleration program is aimed at economic players in the Valais who aim to make better use of digitalization, whether in their internal organization, their processes or their management system," explains Bertrand Fournier, program manager on behalf of The Ark.


Interested SMEs in the Valais, whatever their field of activity, can contact The Ark to discuss their project and the opportunities that digitalization offers to boost their productivity. Valais-based companies specializing in IT can also offer their digital solutions for SMEs.


Optimizing processes and productivity for SMEs

The objectives of this acceleration program are varied and geared towards optimizing processes and business growth. For example, we support companies in their transition to an integrated ERP system. This type of software goes beyond simple accounting to integrate all the operational processes of an SME in a coherent way. 
Another example of an application supported by the program is the implementation of automated digital dashboards to better manage all SME processes. The creation of transport management and planning software within a company is also possible, as is the implementation of a customer relations system (CRM), to better track customer orders and activities. "These are just a few concrete examples of what digital technology can do for companies in Valais. Of course, any ideas to boost the productivity of SMEs can be discussed and potentially implemented thanks to our network of specialists," adds Bertrand Fournier.



CHF 4'900 per project

As part of this acceleration program, The Ark Foundation helps companies to formalize and identify their exact needs. If you haven't already done so, we help you identify the right implementation partner. In addition to this proactive support, financial assistance of CHF 4,900.- is available to companies embarking on a concrete project.
