Enköping municipality and HiQ win special award for usability

Yesterday, the Swedish Publishing Awards’ “Usability Prize” was presented to Enköping’s new municipality website, developed together with HiQ. The jury’s statement read: “For amazing focus on helping the user find its way – bingo!”

“This feels great. Not least to win together with one of our brave and forward-thinking clients, for a solution that is easy to use and that makes people’s everyday lives a bit simpler,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO at HiQ.

HiQ had an overall responsibility from concept and design to final solution. The target was to create a site that simplifies for everyone living and working in Enköping.

“We’re incredibly happy. Anyone working with communication in a municipality is familiar with the challenges in the amount of information that needs to be available for the citizens. Therefore usability, accessibility, and simplicity have been in focus in the entire project, and we have had a good collaboration with HiQ through all steps. This award shows us that we are on the right path,” says Anna Densjö, web strategist in the municipality of Enköping. 

“We are very proud – of the award, of the trust we have received from Enköping, and of a developing and successful partnership. Congratulations to our client and to the entire project team! This assignment is yet another example of how we at HiQ are broadening our operations, not least here in the region,” says Åza Solomon, client manager at HiQ.

Enköping’s municipality web was also nominated in the “Public sector sites” category, just like the Kungälv municipality’s new communications platform, also developed together with HiQ.

“In the digitalisation of society, a municipality site is important for dialogue, influence, and inclusion. And as with all digital solutions, it’s important to offer a nice and easy user experience. This award and these nominations show us that we at HiQ deliver what we promise – innovation with high quality, always focused on simplicity for the user,” Lars Stugemo concludes.

HiQ expands in three Swedish cities following the acquisition of Headlight

Earlier this year, HiQ acquired Headlight Group, consisting of Headlight and Relight.

– 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.

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.
