HiQ simplifies the cashless society

HiQ continues to profile itself as a leading player in the making of a Cashless Society. In our partnership with Bambora we have created a digital solution that simplifies global shopping.

Bambora is a Swedish payment group with a global presence that manages transactions in 65 countries. Together with Bambora HiQ has developed a service that simplifies management of Credit Card purchases including purchase, authentication, credit checking and compliance. The service also makes it easier for tourists to recoup VAT and similar taxes.

"To do this together with Bambora is well in line with HiQ's goal and ambition to simplify peoples payments in Sweden as well as in the rest of the world," says Magnus Gudéhn, CEO of HiQ Stockholm.

The collaboration with Bambora is based on similar values, where the focus is entirely to simplify people’s lives with technology.

"We work based on a specific goal but the way to get there is developing during the process. It is based on trust and a pragmatic approach. Everything we do is a consequence of our customers' lives - we build and innovate based on a specific customer demand", says Bambora’s CTO Daniel Nordholm.

HiQ and Bambora have built a modern redemption system that operates in a global market where security, scalability and flexibility are essential. Bambora helps its customers grow and develop internationally with simple payment solutions for the store, online and in the mobile phone. In order to manage this, a smooth technical solution is absolutely crucial.

"Together with the team from HiQ, we have developed this service in less than half the standard time for doing initiatives like this. Normally it takes around 18 months, something we did in eight. Quite impressive, if I may say so myself”, says Daniel Nordholm.

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.
