HiQ establishes cooperation with Stockholm Globe Arenas

HiQ is establishing a partnership with Stockholm Globe Arenas (SGA) to create a mobile solution for more rapid and more efficient communication with visitors to SGA’s venues.

This new cooperation sees HiQ further consolidate its position in the expanding event and entertainment industry.

Stockholm Globe Arenas are important in confirming Stockholm's role as a world-class tourist destination and host for major events. Here, close to the very heart of Stockholm, visitors can enjoy a huge variety of events in the Ericsson Globe, Annexet, Hovet and Söderstadion arenas, and from the summer of 2013 also in the Tele2 Arena, one of Europe's most modern and most flexible multi-purpose arenas. Now HiQ is helping SGA to improve its communication with its many visitors.

"With more and more people using their smartphones to search for information and do business via the internet, it seemed the natural step to adapt the Stockholm Globe Arenas website to mobile operating systems and e-readers. We solved the challenge by creating a mobile web with a clear focus on simplicity and business benefits. This current project marks the start of long-term collaboration," says Bo Ringdahl, Managing Director of HiQ in Stockholm.

"Stockholm Globe Arenas host over 300 events a year that attract more than 1.5 million visitors. These figures will rise even higher when the Tele2 Arena opens for business next year. For us, mobile communication channels are a priority for establishing a dialogue with our visitors that is as open and effective as possible, and this is something that our cooperation with HiQ has made easier for us to achieve," says SGA Marketing Manager, Johan Seidefors.

HiQ is winning ever greater numbers of mobile communication and web-related assignments. HiQ is also increasingly involved in projects for the event and entertainment industry, including the Alpine World Cup in Levi, Finland, the 2013 European Athletics Championships and this year's Peace & Love music festival in Borlänge, Sweden.

"The industry needs mobile solutions for simplifying ticket booking procedures, distributing information and marketing events. Our many years' experience of the technology combined with our expertise in using mobile solutions to create business benefits means we are very well placed to succeed in this exciting and expanding segment. We are both happy and proud to be establishing cooperation with Stockholm Globe Arenas," says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.

– We’re so excited to be expanding to Borlänge and in the cities of Örebro and Västerås! 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.
