“When summarising 2014, we see that we continue to grow. We increase net sales and profits and have a strong cash flow. We are more employees than ever and we win several assignments for global companies during the year. Companies who, just like us, are passionate about simplifying,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.

Our lives are increasingly affected by our society becoming digital. This is constantly notable in our everyday lives, for example in our relations with others, in our work, when we drive cars or consume media. The hub of our changed lifestyle is smartphones and the fact that we are constantly connected.

”Together with our clients we create value for people. For example in the automotive industry with the acknowledged projects ”Roam Delivery” and ”Non-Hit Car & Truck”, or when we develop the mobile payment service Swish or help the Swedish Post & Telecom Authority to create a Facebook solution for people suffering from deafblindness,” Stugemo continues.

”We are a hungry and result-oriented company, constantly striving to make a difference in people’s lives. With strong finances and 1,400 skilled and ambitious employees, HiQ has a very strong position going forward,” Lars Stugemo concludes.
