HiQ nominated for prestigeous design prize

HiQ has been nominated for the Swedish Design Prize on the basis of the work for the West Swedish Chamber of Commerce in developing the app Visitkortsflippen. The result was an easy to use app that clearly communicates the Chamber of Commerce's brand.

Now, the app's design has been recognised through its nomination for a renowned design prize.

"HiQ understood immediately what we wanted to communicate with the app and adopted a user's perspective throughout its development. We are very proud of the app and have our fingers crossed that its design will take home first prize on 18 October," says David Hagetoft, Head of Marketing at West Sweden Chamber of Commerce.

The app is used frequently at different types of events where visitors share their contact information with each other. The app's key feature is being able to share business cards virtually using your mobile phone wherever you are and being able to download other people's business cards directly to your phone. On Android Play (the equivalent of Apple's App Store), you can read comments from users like "I've been looking for this kind of app, thanks!" and "Perfect for business cards. A really good alternative to printed business cards! Will start using it right away."

"The Chamber of Commerce had an idea for an app that would strengthen its position as a place to meet and network. In order for the concept to work and communicate its message properly, the idea needed to be packaged in a user-friendly way. We are very proud of our nomination. This year also saw a record 383 nominations for the prize. This naturally makes it all the more impressive to be chosen," says Jerker Lindstén, Managing Director of HiQ Göteborg.

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.
