Fintoto and HiQ win mobile award

Fintoto’s new mobile service is awarded as the ”Best HTML5 service for consumers” in Finland. HiQ was in charge of development of the solution. The Best Mobile Service in Finland 2013 winners were announced yesterday evening in Helsinki.

"We are extremely proud of the partnership with Fintoto. We are happy to see that the service is appreciated, by the users and by the award jury”, says Jukka Rautio, Managing Director at HiQ Finland.

Fintoto’s new Toto-mobiili was launched in September. With the mobile service, users can bet on horse and harness racing and follow race broadcasts live in their smartphones. The jury praised Fintoto’s application as an intuitive and easy-to-use service with true market potential. Users were also able to vote for their favorite service. The 2013 competition gathered over one hundred nominees.

"Our goal was to create a mobile service for both current and new users, making betting simpler and bringing genuine joy to the user. This award shows us that we have succeeded", says Kimmo Wager, Director of Sales and Marketing at Fintoto.

Mobility is one of HiQ’s expert areas and the new Fintoto service is a great example of how technology simplifies. Tomorrow, HiQ has the chance to celebrate more mobility awards when the Guldmobilen winners are announced in Stockholm.

“Our goal is to help our clients create solutions that simplify and improve people’s lives. When those solutions are being acknowledged and appreciated, we know that we are delivering what we promise,” says Lars Stugemo, president and CEO at 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.
