There is something that even after living in Switzerland for five years I cannot understand: Why Swiss companies can't design a decent website. I realize that like most things in Switzerland, 20 years behind the times is about standard. And nothing proves this point more than these websites. Yes. Instead of designing for the Internet, these companies seem to think it works to design for direct mail and use the direct mail ad as the website.
There are two things wrong with this approach:
1. Direct mail is bad enough in paper format.
2. Direct mail on the web is even worse.
Most of these websites also seem to forget that online commerce is something that is possible in the 21st century. Heaven forbid I would want to see an overview of what a store sells and actually order something with my credit card.
Anyhow, here is a good representation of the quality of a .ch. Have fun.
Are you often frustrated by Swiss websites? Know of any other bad ones I'd enjoy?
