Awapatent chooses HiQ as a partner on the next stage of its digital journey

New technology creates new needs and new ways of doing things. Ahead of embarking on the next stage of its digital journey, the consultancy firm Awapatent has chosen HiQ as its partner. “We were looking for a supplier who can challenge us to think in new ways – and that’s exactly what we found in HiQ,” says Marie-Louise Lindblom at Awapatent.

Collaboration will begin immediately and the focus will be on strategic projects that use a variety of smart digital solutions to improve and simplify work, both for Awapatent and the company’s clients. HiQ will also serve as Awapatent’s partner for a digital payment service for local and global clients that will come online at a future date.

“Awapatent chose HiQ because of HiQ’s professionalism, creativity and expertise at the cutting edge of technology. We were looking for a supplier who can challenge us to think in new ways. HiQ has clearly demonstrated its ability to do just this throughout the entire process, through its creative approach, its know-how and its will to win – while also making every stage of the journey fun and thoroughly enjoyable,” says Marie-Louise Lindblom, Head of Aftermarket Services at Awapatent.

“We won this assignment in the face of stiff competition, so we are incredibly proud and pleased that Awapatent has chosen to work with HiQ. Our collaboration with Awapatent extends all the way from idea, through design and development, to implementation and ongoing optimisation,” says Peter Sognefur, Sales Manager with HiQ Skåne.

Awapatent, a leading consultancy organisation in intellectual property with 16 offices in Sweden, Denmark, Germany and China/Hong Kong, is working at a time that is characterised by a number of dramatic changes. Innovations in genetics, nanotechnology and software development, together with amendments to existing laws and the forward march of globalisation are posing new challenges and creating new demands for Awapatent and its clients.

“Being part of this process of development together with Awapatent fits in well with HiQ’s aim and ambition to simplify business models and processes through digital strategies and development,” says Anna Kleine, Managing Director, HiQ Skåne.

Awapatent is a leading consultancy organisation in intellectual property (patents, design and trademark protection, copyright, etc.) The company was founded in Malmö, Sweden, 120 years ago by the Swedish engineer Anders Wilhelm Anderson (whose initials form part the company name). Today Awapatent has 300 employees.
