About Lausanne, Switzerland

The city of Lausanne is located in the southwestern area of Switzerland, on the banks of Lake Geneva. Over 139,111 people (2018) inhabit an area of 41 square km, making it the fifth-largest city in Switzerland. Lausanne is the capital of the canton of Vaud and is located 6km northeast of Geneva. Switzerland is a landlocked country and shares its borders with five other counties: Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Italy, and France. Despite being surrounded by European Union members, Switzerland rejected joining the E.U. after holding a referendum in 1992. Its application remains open, but there are no plans to join the E.U. Switzerland is a member of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). The currency used within Switzerland is the Swiss franc (CHF).

Economy of Lausanne

Lausanne’s economy is not as strong as other regions in Switzerland, such as Geneva and Zurich. The largest employers in the region are Publicis Groupe Switzerland, Nokia, Bobst, and The Banque Cantonale Vaudoise. Significant industries in Lausanne include financial services, and the third-largest financial brokerage company in the world – The Financial Company Tradition – has its central offices located within the city. The area is also home to five other bank headquarters. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) have their headquarters in Lausanne. Philip Morris International tobacco company (PMI) has regional headquarters in Lausanne. The giant company owns 7 out of the 15 leading cigarettes brands and accounts for over 10% of all tobacco sales outside of the United States. Nestle also has its headquarters located 20km away from Lausanne city center.

Lausanne attracts a small number of visitors, mainly from European Union member countries, with most tourist activity in the summer months. There are many hotels located around Lake Geneva to accommodate visitors. It has several large convention spaces and is a center for business trade fairs and meetings due to its proximity to Geneva and easy accessibility from Europe.

Infrastructure of Lausanne

Lausanne does not have an airport; instead, it is serviced by the Geneva International Airport, located 60km away from the city center. This large airport handles over 17 million passengers annually and has frequent flights to domestic and international locations. Several bus services link Lausanne city to Geneva Airport.

Lausanne has an excellent road infrastructure, with the A1 running past the western side of the town, which connects it to Zurich. The A9 motorway runs past the city’s east and allows for travel to Italy and France. Due to Switzerland’s central location and good road structure, it is possible to travel by road to almost any European country, including England, by using the Eurostar from Brussels or Paris. Public transportation systems are vast, with trolleybuses serving the downtown area and a newly opened metro system (2008) with several stops in the city center.

Lausanne and Switzerland have a highly modern and efficient top-level telecommunication infrastructure, such as a fast and stable Internet backbone and good mobile network connectivity.

Lausanne Workforce

The Swiss workforce is exceptionally highly motivated and productive, working some of the most extended business hours in Europe. Lausanne takes pride in its education systems and puts a high percentage of its GDP back into improving education. All citizens must attend school up until the age of 16; after that, it is up to the individual to decide whether they would like to further their educational studies.

The University Of Lausanne (UNIL) has a campus on the shores of Lake Geneva, and it is popular with both Swiss nationals and international students. It offers numerous undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs. The economic and business faculty of the university has been awarded the title of number 1 educational facility in Switzerland and has been placed within the top 10 business schools for Europe for several years running by the University of Texas. The École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) has been awarded the rank of number one educational facility in Europe in terms of engineering and technology. It has an extensive research facility that helps develop the skills of future scientists and engineers. These educational institutes produce a highly educated professional workforce trained in their field of expertise. A modern science park is also located within the city and houses a growing number of companies.

Business Costs in Lausanne

Switzerland is considered a tax haven and has low corporate and individual rates. The tax rates are decentralized and are set depending on the district the individual or company is based in, as laid out by The Federal District Tax Act. Tax laws can be complex and apply on three levels – federal, cantonal, and municipal. The standard federal tax rate is 8.5%, with cantonal and municipal taxes varying depending on the company’s structure. Any capital gains made on private investments are not subject to any taxes. Switzerland’s VAT rates are lower than many other European countries with a standard 7.6% rate; discounted rates of 2.6% are available for books, medication, and some foodstuffs.

Rental costs for offices in Switzerland are higher than in most of its neighboring countries; however, it has one of the most stable markets in Europe and has remained relatively unharmed during the global economic crises, when other markets were experiencing a decrease in value. Lausanne has numerous commercial property agents and has some ready-to-move-in spaces and virtual offices available to new businesses.

There is no legislation regarding minimum wage rates for workers in Lausanne, but people employed in the professional sector enjoy competitive wages that rival many major European cities. Favorable tax rates, a productive workforce, and an excellent solid transportation network make Lausanne a good area for foreign investment, particularly business in the financial sector.

WordPress Maintenance in Lausanne – Why Do You Need It?

To keep your WordPress website performing well after its online publication, your website still needs to be managed and technically maintained. It is not prudent to just publish your website and walk away thinking “job-done”.

Search engines such as GoogleYahoo!, and Bing are constantly evolving using artificial intelligence and changing their algorithms (the way they evaluate your website) to finely hone their users’ search experience. Therefore, properly managing and technically maintaining a website ensures it stays in tune with changing search engine technology and software environment.

After the publication of your website, I can continue to be the webmaster for your website, providing website technical support and carrying out any website maintenance required.

The WordPress Maintenance Services in Lausanne are renewable monthly or annually, and, depending on your specific case, it can include the renewal of hosting space and domain name, maintaining website security, monitoring website traffic, search engine re-submissions and tracking changes, as well as recovering your website in case of disaster.

Nowadays, many people simply forget to backup their enterprise website: Maybe the stress of running their business, the lack of knowledge, or any other reasons.

Some of the bad scenarios when you need a site backup:

  • Hacked site recovery – In case you need to recover your business website very fast, and in the same way it was, you need a backup.
  • WordPress updates break your website – It happens. Every time you make a theme or plugin update, make sure you do a backup before. Most people put those updates on “auto” mode, meaning your WordPress site can go down while your potential clients are surfing on it. That’s bad!
  • Cheap hosting – One of the biggest problems with those cheap hosting providers ($1/month, $5/month, $15/month) with UNLIMITED traffic, UNLIMITED domains, and other misleading offers may disappear after a few weeks you just bought their plan(s). Guess what?! Your website will disappear, too. In order to keep your website online, you need someone (person or software) to take care of it, and take prompt action in case of any problems.

In any case, you need a fresh and well-structured backup of your website. But these WordPress site maintenance services in Lausanne aren’t only about backups. I also provide Security protection for your site and implement the last réglementation in the matter of WordPress security. Your website is in safe hands and your enterprise will continue to prosper.

Why is WordPress website maintenance important?

WordPress is the most successful CMS (*content management system). Due to its heavy use worldwide, however, it is also a popular target for hackers. Similar to an operating system on the computer, WordPress must be updated regularly. Functionalities are expanded and security gaps are closed. Once regularly updated, WordPress is stable and secure. However, WordPress installations that are rarely updated or not updated at all are vulnerable and run the risk of being infected by malicious code.

I take care of all the necessary details to make your WordPress website more secure and regularly update the WordPress core system and all plugins used. In the first step, I carry out a basic check of your WordPress website. I check the WordPress core data, plugins, and themes used. I check the performance and carry out the first security checks. Your system is checked for security gaps and for viruses, malware, or Trojans. I am interested in the general condition of your website and the associated immunity of the system. As soon as the basis is right, all further work follows.

I keep your WordPress website up to date with regular updates

For the operation of a professional WordPress website, it is necessary to ensure regular updates of the system and the installed plugins and themes. Regular updates are the basic work for a safe and stable WordPress website. I carry out these essential tasks and constantly stabilize the immune system of your website. At the same time, we check the compatibility of the individual plugins and the functionality of the entire website after each update.

I create backups of your WordPress website

Your website is important to your business and often the focus of many marketing efforts. A successful website puts a lot of time and energy into it. This business area can be temporarily paralyzed by WordPress problems such as incompatible plugins or themes. This is not yet about hacker attacks or other infections. That’s why regular backups are the reinsurance of your website. Thanks to a WordPress backup, we can quickly restore the normal operation of your website in an emergency. I take care of your WordPress security and create regular data backups on external servers and secure your business sustainably.

I check your WordPress website after each update

In addition to the necessary updates to the WordPress core version and the plugins used to keep your website stable and up-to-date, a subsequent check of your website for functionality is mandatory. Since plugins are offered by different developers and companies, incompatibilities can never be ruled out. Especially when using many plugins, the risk increases, and problems can occur. Therefore, a function test of the website after each update should be routine. I offer you this routine and can also carry out an analysis of the plugins you use to determine whether they are necessary.
