HiQ simplifies for the citizens in the Kungälv Municipality

This week, the municipality of Kungälv launches its new communications platform, developed by HiQ. The solution simplifies and improves for everyone living in the area. HiQ has had an overall responsibility for both the design and development of the new www.kungsalv.se

"I'm very pleased. We now have a modern platform with the same look and navigation regardless of device - simply a better user experience. Our vision and keywords were courage, creativity and re-thinking," says Susanne Junkala, Head of communications in Kungälv municipality.

The old municipality web site from 2004 has shrunk from 11,000 pages to 800, with simpler texts, improved lucidness as well as translations to sign language. The new solution also has a better search functionality and a focus on video and images.

"This simplifies for both the people who live here and for those working with communications. And we're not done yet, we will continue developing continually, adding more functionality, improving access, and offering better service. We will be perceptive for demands and wishes, says Magnus Gyllestad, Head of the Kungälv municipality.

"We're proud to have gained our client's trust and proud to create a solution that is fun and easy to use. A municipality has large amounts of information that needs to be accessible and this creates high demands on simplicity and usability. Our client had a clear objective and we had the task to implement it," says Jerker Lindstén at HiQ.

HiQ is increasingly winning assignments with overall responsibility for digital strategy and communication. The Kungälv project is yet another example.

"The digitalisation of society is affecting all organisations and creates vast opportunities to simplify people's everyday lives. Just like in this assignment. At HiQ, we have both the competence and experience to shoulder the responsibility on a strategic, creative, and technical level," Lars Stugemo at HiQ concludes

HiQ expands in three Swedish cities following the acquisition of Headlight

Earlier this year, HiQ acquired Headlight Group, consisting of Headlight and Relight. This acquisition is an important part of HiQ’s expansion journey and will bring new job opportunities to the cities of Västerås, Örebro and Borlänge due to the great recruitment need. The news comes just weeks after the acquisition was announced and is an important part of HiQ’s effort to become Northern Europe’s leading tech consulting firm.

– We’re so excited to be expanding to Borlänge and in the cities of Örebro and Västerås! This merger enables us to expand further in the Swedish market and bring new jobs to all three cities while also affording us the opportunity to work together with companies in these areas. This is a good step for us on our expansion journey. Let’s go big!, says Sven Ivar Mørch, 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.
