HiQ driving development of mobile wallet

Mobile payments are now seeing broad adoption in several places around the world and are predicted to reach a total of $171 billion in 2012*. HiQ has shifted into high gear to meet the demand for effective solutions for mobile payments.

Smart mobile devices are a natural part of our daily lives – from the time we wake up in the morning until we go to sleep at night. We now socialise, shop, consume entertainment and manage our finances using mobile devices. The mobile lifestyle has never been so widespread as it is right now. For HiQ, this development means helping our customers to create business advantages by finding effective solutions for mobile devices.

"We now want a simple way to make payments and banking using mobile devices. According to Gartner, mobile payments will amount to $171 billion in 2012, an increase of 62 per cent over last year. And this is just the beginning. At HiQ we have a number of experts in the field that understand both the technology and how the banks can create a better business for themselves and their customers in the mobile lifestyle," explains Magnus Gudéhn, Business Area Manager at HiQ.

Among other milestones already reached in the field, HiQ designed the mobile service offered to private customers by major Finnish bank OP Pohjola. HiQ has also developed a tool for tablets that is used by traders at a major Swedish bank. To ensure it successfully keeps pace with development, HiQ is utilising all its expertise from more than 15 years of experience in multiple market segments, particularly the telecommunications industry. HiQ also collaborate successfully with Nordic and international banks in the creation of platforms for securities trading. The width is yet another strength as we help wallets go mobile.

"There is a mobile revolution going on. The concept “mobile first” is significant in every segment, which means that mobile solutions are at the forefront as companies look at the packaging of their offering. The mobile wallet means that it will be easier to make payments and transfers, that creates simpler businesses in mobile devices. That will create new innovations and opportunities for instance for banks, retail companies and media houses, says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.

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.
