GeBer's experts gave the Swiss Life annual report a particularly high score for "Offline Use". Not only can individual chapters be downloaded as PDF documents, but the tables can also be saved in Excel format. The file basket was found to be a very practical feature, allowing users to compile their own selections of individual files or chapters.
A total of 114 European annual reports were included in the benchmark survey.

With a total result of 64%, Swiss Life met around two-thirds of the criteria evaluated, putting it in the high mid-range of the European companies surveyed.
