HiQ streamlines ABB Oy's application management

HiQ and ABB in Finland have signed a new framework agreement in which HiQ is assigned overall responsibility for ABB’s SharePoint application management. The aim is to simplify and streamline the industrial giant’s operations.

During the past years, ABB Oy, the group’s Finnish corporation, has developed numerous business critical SharePoint applications. HiQ’s new assignment is to provide application maintenance and development services, ensuring the continuity of all current and forthcoming applications.

“Before, the application maintenance models and services have varied from one application and partner to another. By selecting one single partner to carry the responsibility we’ll be able to simplify and unify our application management significantly, thereby streamlining our processes. HiQ has both the required expertise as well as the service orientation that we are looking for,” says Jari Tuukkanen, Sourcing Manager at ABB Oy.

HiQ is a strong player in the industry segment. ABB Oy and HiQ have collaborated since 2008, a partnership that now evolves.

”We have developed our SharePoint know-how during the last couple of years and today, we are one of the top teams in the Nordic region. We are extremely proud of the renewed confidence from ABB and are eagerly looking forward to helping them simplify their operations,” says Jukka Rautio, Managing Director at HiQ Finland.

HiQ is also involved in Microsoft’s global Business-Critical SharePoint (BCSP) partner program. The program focuses on expanding the market for building and delivering solutions that generate a business impact through advanced SharePoint solutions.

ABB is a leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve their performance while lowering environmental impact. The ABB Group operates in around 100 countries and employs about 145,000 people. ABB Oy in Finland has about 7000 employees.

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.
