DU DA is refocusing in order to place greater emphasis on the development of marketable and digital products, covering everything from conception and design to programming. Its innovation focus will be on mobile apps, web applications, prototyping and cross-media services that are based on innovative technologies such as the blockchain.

Farner Switzerland has worked closely with DU DA over the past three years as majority shareholder and there have been several successful product launches. These include the ecoo platform (https://ecoo.ch/), which enables businesses to create their own ring-fenced means of payment. As part of this refocusing Farner Switzerland will be stepping back from its participation; it will continue to be involved in the joint customer projects and will remain invested in ecoo AG.

“We have valued the cooperation of the past three years. Together with the DU DA team, we have staged a large number of successful pitches and customer projects,” explained Pablo Koerfer, Co-CEO of Farner Switzerland. “Our close ties with DU DA will remain – whether through joint projects or through our investment in ecoo – and we support the new strategic direction of Marc van Nuffel and his team.”

“We can look back on three years with Farner Switzerland as a success: we have made huge progress as a business and are now ready for the next step in bringing together modern payment products, community and regulatory expertise. I am delighted to welcome Netcetera on board, so that we can promote this additional area together. Netcetera – the internationally successful software and products company – will give us optimal access to experience and synergies in the areas of payment, publishing and health,” commented Marc van Nuffel, CEO of DU DA.

Farner Switzerland will continue to strengthen and expand its expertise in the digital sector under the international and Switzerland-wide growth strategy announced in January 2022.
