HiQ helps Sweden's premier football league go mobile

The kick-off for Sweden's Allsvenskan premier league football season is just around the corner.

To coincide with the start of the new season, HiQ has helped develop the Matchmode Arena mobile app, which makes it easier for fans to follow their favourite teams before, during and after matches.

The quick transition to a mobile lifestyle is clear for all to see. HiQ has many years of experience with media, gaming and entertainment projects, and the development of the Matchmode Arena mobile app for the Allsvenskan league is just one of many recent assignments entrusted to HiQ by the Swedish sports world.

"HiQ is happy to be involved in helping Matchmode AB to develop this mobile app for the Allsvenskan football league. The app will make it easier for devoted football fans to follow their favourite teams from the grandstand," explains Jerker Lindstén, Managing Director of HiQ Göteborg.

Matchmode Arena tackles the challenge of making the time before, during and after matches more exciting, fun and interesting. Each supporter receives customised information and the app offers new and unique advertising space for sponsors, while also making it easy for supporters to take advantage of deals offered inside the stadium. Supporters will receive match stats in real time, as well as have access to a discussion forum and exclusive information direct from their team's bench. The app and the communication platform behind it, now ready for launch, is available to all teams and has been developed together with AIK and IFK Göteborg teams' supporters.

"Fans can also have their say during the match, as the app opens the way for fast, two-way communication with team management," adds Anders Frisk, Innovation Consultant at Matchmode.

The Allsvenskan season kicks off on 31 March and the app is already available for interested fans to explore.

"Teams, organisers, sponsors and athletes are discovering more and more advantages of having a mobile strategy that makes it possible to offer fans, the media and others mobile solutions. Amongst other successful releases, HiQ launched a unique mobile app to coincide with Rally Sweden (held at the beginning of February) that made it possible to follow motorsport superstar Richard Göransson using GPS and live images," says Peter L. Häggström, Marketing and Information Manager at HiQ International.

This merger enables us to expand further in the Swedish market and bring new jobs to all three cities while also affording us the opportunity to work together with companies in these areas.

HiQ & BatteryLoop develop more efficient charging infrastructure

BatteryLoop, a company which gives electric car batteries a second life as energy storage systems, launched an energy storage system in the spring of 2021 which makes it possible, among other things, to build charging infrastructure in places where the electricity grid suffers power shortages. In collaboration with HiQ, BatteryLoop is now developing a digital platform that makes it possible to maximize power in the charging infrastructure. The digital platform enables an estimate as to how long a battery has left to live, thus its economic value in a circular business model.

– It is fantastic that our team is joining BatteryLoop on this journey. Circular business models and sustainability are important to us at HiQ, and it really shows with this project. There is an incredible amount to do to streamline the use of energy in society and this solution is an important contribution to that process, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.
