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