Corporates

Open innovation with companies

PFLab is developing forward-looking innovation projects, even outside of banking. It is very important that our innovation process is opened up to the outside world, and that we work with other companies as innovation partners.

Innovation also breaks through traditional  corporate boundaries. After all, if we want innovations to come flooding into the company from outside, the process must be open for partners. PFLab is looking to work with other corporates and to spearhead innovation projects together. Each company will bring to the table their own strengths, market knowledge and specialist expertise in specific development areas. A prime example of this is Ormera – a company that provides smart energy billing solutions using blockchain technology – which is based on a partnership between PostFinance and the Berne-based power supply company, Energie Wasser Bern (ewb).
