Connected piggy bank for children

Credit Suisse wanted to offer a digital piggy bank for children. From the bank's idea, Zühlke developed Digipigi and handled the production in Switzerland.

Customer benefits

  • Experienced Swiss development and production partner.
  • Zühlke took responsibility for the entire development from conception to production.
  • Production-cost optimised design ensured a reasonable price.



Zühlke really lives up to their motto 'Empowering Ideas' - the company put our idea into practice and prepared it for series production.

– Anna Markmann, Product Manager Credit Suisse

Connected piggy bank made in Switzerland

Credit Suisse launched the "VivaKids" banking package, which is designed to help children learn playfully how to handle money. A connected piggy bank is the central component. Credit Suisse contracted the experienced Swiss company Zühlke to develop a ready-to-go Internet of Things product from the original concept and to assume responsibility for the production in Switzerland. The IoT piggy bank was to be ready for production within one year.

Solution from one single source

In tandem with Credit Suisse, a multidisciplinary Zühlke team developed the design, mechanics, electronics, and firmware for Digipigi. The specialists also took responsibility for the production by Swiss manufacturers, thus ensuring that the piggy bank could be produced at a reasonable price.
