Core Team Gravity Global AG
GRAVITY software is for companies that want to streamline digital adoption in the workplace. It’s the era of autonomous, efficient IT rollouts: no more expensive, in-person workshops and ignored instruction manuals. GRAVITY is your new, digital trainer.
GRAVITY’s platform works in harmony with existing software and applications, using custom-designed callouts and icons to help users navigate enterprise software intuitively and learn as they go. Empower new and established employees alike to “train themselves,” work distraction-free, and maximize productivity – all while saving up to 90% on enterprise learning costs. Large businesses across the globe use GRAVITY’s learning platform on top of their enterprise software. In the process, GRAVITY innovated the first training overlay for online versions of Microsoft Office 365 applications.
While developing and supporting software, I learned that even an intuitive and user-friendly UI, cannot help to completely avoid support requests. Due to the variety of use cases and processes covered by enterprise software, some user questions will always remain. GRAVITY solves that issue, by delivering proper content in the proper place, at the proper time, managed by people responsible for those processes.
As operations lead and project manager I encountered a wealth of documentations and user trainings as well as error or quality reports necessitated by the fact that processes were, despite all efforts, not followed. Thus I was thrilled to learn about GRAVITY since I immediately understood its potential to replace most of these efforts greatly improving user experience and business outcomes.
For years I used corporate Intranets in the workplace, experiencing firsthand that traditional learning formats for IT rollouts and employee onboarding do not work. I developed GRAVITY software to tackle this challenge. Employees are happier because learning is simple and effective; businesses are happier because their IT rollouts are successful and cost a lot less than before.
Board of Directors
Working as business customer advisor for Zürcher Kantonalbank, I found myself sitting next to a locker filled with manuals for the various systems we used. But how would I get support outside my office, at home or at a customer, I wondered? When a client of mine came up with the idea of GRAVITY, I immediately jumped on it and became one of its founders.
“A brand is a promise kept”. That is what I was preaching to my clients as CEO of Publicis Communications Switzerland. And that is why I am happy to be part of the board. Gravity’s promise is simple and relevant: Save 90% of enterprise learning cost by engaging employees. My role will be to make sure Gravity upholds that promise in everything we do.
In my role as CTO at both UBS and Credit Suisse I experienced first hand how tedious the roll-out of new applications generally was. With full attention on functionality, the employees working with the new systems were often forgotten. I therefore see great potential for Gravity in securing the benefits of the huge IT investments enterprises undertake.

Passionate for gravity because it addresses a major concern preventing enterprises to be successful in the fast-paced world of digitization.
As the legal counsel for the international corporate business of Zurich insurance group for more than 15 years, Martin is well versed not only in solving legal matters but also highly connected in the business world. Thanks to his devotion in playing the fastest team sport-game -- ice hockey -- he is also able to deliver the right “checks and balances” and to stay grounded on both feet in the world of real business and complex commerce.
As product owner of a financially critical system, I frequently spent sleepless nights after releases. Will the many thousand users read and understand our release note? Or will I go back three months later to find out that new features are being ignored? Given my background it was easy to immediately grasp the power of Gravity and a great honour to be asked by the founders to be a member of the advisory board.
