Both in the area of financial services as well as other sectors, BrainNet is considered a pioneer when it comes to strategic issues related to purchasing as well as logistics, production and R&D supply chains.

Now we can conduct even more complex transformation projects and that includes optimizing purchasing and the supply chain.” Christoph Wolleb, partner of BrainNet in Switzerland, is also convinced: “This merger is a clear answer to the demands of increasingly global markets, not only for large corporations but also for Swiss SMEs. The combination of our strategic and methodical experience as well as our technical and international expertise will benefit our clients considerably with regard to efficiency, capacity for innovation and competitiveness.”
