On May 20, 2017, the new open branch concept was introduced at the Zurich branch. This is an open concept and puts the customer in the center. The values of the Bank appear in a fresh and modern design. The branch appears open and transparent and allows new ways of interaction with the bank. The customer pitch takes place where the customer feels the most comfortable, at the big table, at the bar, in the lounge, in the creative room or the traditional meeting room. So that the advisors are recognized easily in this open concept, they wear a fashion collection designed by the Swiss fashion designer Lela Scherrer. Until 2020 more branches will be remodeled like the one in Zurich.
In June 2017 the virtual office “myCler” was introduced. New customers can open an account or order a credit card very quickly in a few steps without any paperwork. Clients who want to invest can choose their suitable investment profile and directly invest. If a customer wishes a personal consultation, he or she can do that through a chat function directly with the advisor. If the customer wants to meet the advisor in person, he can instantly fix an appointment in the branch of desire.
The digital offering was further enhanced in 2017 with an app, which evaluates real-estate. The app is called Bank Cler Quanto and is the first app with this function offered by a bank in Switzerland.
