HiQ helps the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra to spread its concerts worldwide

HiQ helps the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra (GSO) with a new mobile service that makes it possible to experience first-rate concerts whenever, wherever – with better quality than streaming.

The service, which was launched yesterday, went straight to 2nd place in the Swedish App Store’s top list for paid apps. HiQ is digital partner to GSO and has had an overall responsibility of the project, from idea and concept to design and development.

“The interest in classical music is huge and it feels great to offer more ways to enjoy our concerts. We will follow up with an Android version of the service this autumn. We have worked with HiQ before and they have once again proved to be a trustworthy and innovative partner,” says Måns Pär Fogelberg, Head of public and digital media for the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra.

The new service is a further development of www.gsoplay.se, a favourite among listeners all over the world. The website has offered live concerts with GSO and artists of the highest international level. The participating conductors and soloists include, among others, the first guest conductor Kent Nagano, honorary conductor Gustavo Dudamel, star soprano Barbara Hannigan and many more. With the new mobile solution users can quickly and easily download the concerts and experience them regardless of time and place – without a need for internet connection and with higher quality than by streaming.

“GSO is an exciting client that is truly at the forefront of using new technology to attract interest and reach a new audience. A couple years back we also helped them to develop the game Street Orchestra, which is like “Rock Band” for classical instruments. This time we are simplifying and improving the possibilities to take part of top-notch live music, no matter where they are,” says Jerker Lindstén at HiQ.

“Music has always been a part of the HiQ spirit and it’s naturally exciting to help one of our innovative clients within this industry. The world of music has truly been affected by the challenges and opportunities brought by new technology. GSO shows that it’s all about finding new channels for reaching out,” says Lars Stugemo, president and CEO of 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.
