HiQ streamlines City of Oulu with new intranet

HiQ builds the new intranet and virtual workspaces for the City of Oulu.

The aim is to simplify and improve work processes for all employees, by allowing easy access to information, tools and services essential to the everyday work, which in turn will streamline the whole organization.

“In the last years, our work has become more and more digital and our working environment has therefore undergone significant changes. The intranet is a central service that guides our employees to use the right tools for the right purposes and improves communication within the organisation. We need a proactive partner that meets the prerequisites of long-term collaboration and that can support adapting the system to our ever-changing needs,” says IT manager Juhani Heikka at City of Oulu.

HiQ has helped many clients in the public sector to streamline their business processes and communication, as well as in creating modern e-services that favour both the clients’ employees and the citizens.

”Simplifying people’s lives is what it’s all about, also in this project. During the last years we have improved our SharePoint know-how and focused on enabling new ways of working. We are looking forward to using our experience to create the best possible solution for the City of Oulu,” says Jukka Rautio, Managing Director at HiQ Finland.

Oulu is the capital of northern Finland. The metropolitan area, with more than 200 000inhabitants, is Finland’s fifth largest city based on population and it’s the largest center of Northern Scandinavia. The Oulu region is known as a major centre of competence and it also has a rich and versatile cultural climate.

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.
