“We have used SmartNotes for our annual report and were thus able to optimise the efficiency and transparency of the reporting process. The high degree of automation, the excellent functionality of the number management and the CD-compliant implementation with the layout robot convinced us. The decisive factor for us was that we could create the reports ready for printing completely in Word and Excel. The correction effort was massively reduced and the media break to a graphic programme such as InDesign was avoided.ˮ
Focus on investors, financial analysts and the media.
This service package is aimed at listed and non-listed companies that see the value of professional financial and sustainability communications, including communications connected with capital market transactions and IPOs.
If you commission us to manage your project on an integrated basis you benefit from our capabilities as a full-service provider. For each service package we offer the following modules:
- Consulting services
- Conceptual design
- Content creation
- Cross-media production
For listed companies in particular, financial communications in the narrower sense are governed by rules and regulations. But they also have plenty of freedom when it comes to implementation and presenting additional, primarily non-financial, information. The secret is to use this freedom to achieve the greatest impact with your stakeholders. We have the knowledge, experience and implementation capabilities to help you do precisely that.
It’s increasingly important for companies to produce reports meeting the relevant quality and sustainability standards. But they should be designed and produced in such a way that they go beyond the minimum reporting requirements and do more than merely justify the organisation’s activities. We know how to tackle projects of this kind to meet the overarching objectives. This expertise is bundled in our sustainability publishing capabilities.
Integrated reporting is gathering momentum all over the world, but for many Swiss companies it’s still uncharted territory. Producing an integrated report is challenging, with many requirements to be met. Before you embark on a project of this sort, you have to make very sure that your organisation is up to these challenges and has the in-house resources to deliver. We can support you right from this preliminary clarification phase.
Every year Linkgroup produces more than 150 annual reports, online and print, and sustainability reports. Financial reporting is dominated by facts and figures that must be presented with great precision and in clearly defined formats. The process is governed by statutory and regulatory requirements that have to be met in their entirety at all stages of the process. Our structures and workflows are closely geared to these requirements. We guarantee our customers professional execution and absolute confidentiality.
Infographics are nothing new. They originated in English-speaking countries over 200 years ago. Since the 1970s they’ve been a firm feature of newspapers, magazines and corporate communications in this country too.
Once again we’re proud to have contributed to Geberit’s first place overall. We've been working with the company since its IPO in 1999. All in all we were involved in 11 of the top 25 solutions in this year’s design rating for online/print in combination. This year we contributed to the second-biggest climber, Interroll, and the third biggest, Holcim. In 2020 we worked for the second-biggest climber, Fundamenta Real Estate, and in 2019 for the biggest, Swissquote.
“We don’t see ourselves as merely implementing pre-written customer views. What we do is draw on our long experience to support customers with formulating their own strategies for success.”
“Our service packages for corporate, financial and marketing communications target specific stakeholders. Each follows a holistic approach and is divided into modules: advisory services, concept, content development, design and cross-media production.”
“Before we offer solutions we familiarise ourselves thoroughly with our customer’s business. But at Linkgroup it’s not just about good advice. We’re also known for our structured approach and secure processes.”
“Our solutions are always built around content-driven communications. All our partners are co-owners of the business with direct responsibility for customers. We promise customers personal advice from one of our partners.”
Workflow-based publishing: We provide you with proven publishing systems to make publishing straightforward and reliable. In addition to making your publishing processes more efficient and effective, they’re also secure and traceable.
The first and only agency with certification: With customers expecting their service providers to meet higher and higher standards of data protection and information security, it’s more important then ever to have certification. The more forward-looking are already getting a competitive edge by taking precautions.
We had a hand in Geberit’s first place overall in the 2020 Swiss Annual Report Rating. All in all we were involved in ten of the top 25 solutions in the Online/Print Design rating.

Themed online portal: Companies have to stop thinking ideologically in terms of channels and media. They must learn to think like publishers. Content marketing works best when it’s embedded in an overall strategy and fine-tuned to stakeholder expectations.
