During the period HiQ commences on exciting collaborations with key clients such as Ascom, Cramo, Fintoto, Kuusakoski and Volvo Cars.

“There is something new happening all the time in our exciting industry. The connected society is here to stay. With a broad customer base, a strong brand, a curiosity in new technology and the best consultants in the business, we are ready to continue developing society and simplifying people’s lives,” Lars Stugemo concludes.
