Thanks to HiQ's extensive offer, the company works at all levels in their clients' organisations - with IT and R&D as well as on the marketing and business development side. HiQ is increasingly winning assignments in competition with agencies and other players that HiQ hasn't competed with before. Assignments in which HiQ creates user friendly, digital solutions that help the clients to reach out and work in simpler ways. During the quarter, HiQ is for example named new web and mobile partner to Mölnlycke Health Care. The quarter also sees the launch of Kungälv municipality's new communication platform - developed by HiQ with the aim to simplify and improve.

"The digital development has only just begun, and the potential to simplify people's lives and create a better world is enormous. Many companies see the possibilities with digitalisation and need a partner to go from idea to reality. HiQ is that partner. We have the know-how and experience within all elements – technology, people and business – and our offer is more relevant than ever," Lars Stugemo concludes.
