HiQ strengthens its position as a leading partner in the financial industry

As Fennia’s partner, HiQ streamlines and implements procedures for quality assurance and testing in the Finnish insurance company. With this assignment HiQ strengthens its position as the leading IT partner within the financial segment.

"Fennia offers extensive, cost-efficient and high-quality insurance services to our customers. The quality also needs to show in our work tools and procedures. Therefore testing plays a central part in reaching this goal. We wanted a partner with whom we can implement coherent models throughout the organisation, and thereby streamline our operations. HiQ convinced us with their expertise in our field as well as their commitment," says Ritva Vapalahti, director of application development at Fennia.

Together with Fennia's specialists, the HiQ experts updated Fennia's strategy for testing as well as common operational models. In addition to the testing services, HiQ strengthens Fennia's internal quality assurance skills.

"HiQ has vast experience from the financial industry, and our experts bring both technical know-how and innovative power to our clients. This is an important partnership for us and we eagerly await to continue using our knowledge and experience to simplify everyday life for both the employees and customers of Fennia," says Jukka Rautio, Managing Director of HiQ in Finland.

During the last years, HiQ has developed several significant services within the finance and insurance segment. A couple examples are the mobile payment service Swish and the mobile banking service S-mobiili.

"What we have learned during HiQ's first 20 years is that simplicity always wins in the long run. Focusing on simplicity creates real value for the users. That is the key for our leading position within, for example, the financial segment," Lars Stugemo, President and CEO at HiQ, concludes.

Fennia Mutual Insurance Company is owned by its clients and has vast experience in risk management and in underwriting non-life insurance for business clients. The company is a part of the Fennia Group, that provides various risk management and insurance services for enterprises, their personnel, entrepreneurs and private households, as well as flexible client financing solutions.
