HiQ FRENDS simplifies HR Management integrations

HiQ Finland and Arc Technology have entered into an agreement on tech collaboration. The HiQ integration platform Frends will now provide flexible integrations between Arc Technology’s systems, customers systems and third-party systems.

HiQ’s integration platform Frends is a fast, secure and easy approach to integrating third party systems and partner processes to different services. With the platform, Arc Technology can now offer a cost-effective and responsive method for visualising and monitoring integration data and process streams.

“The cooperation provides the users of Arc Technology software with efficient, real-time integration capabilities into back-end systems driven by various technologies”, says Jukka Rautio, Managing Director at HiQ Finland.

“Our integration platform Frends also enable a range of automations that will significantly enhance user service experiences. Process automation between systems is a huge growth area in HR Management and it is playing an increasingly important role for businesses”, says Jukka Rautio, Managing Director at HiQ Finland.

Arc Technology delivers HR management systems as a SaaS solution (software as a service) and offers expert services that enhance operative efficiency. Customers include companies, public organisations in municipal and state administration and Finnish and international educational institutions.

“The IT environments used in HR, which tend to be rather traditional, are now undergoing rapid renewal. Cloud-based HR Management services, which place more and more emphasis on mobility, enable more flexible, user-friendly and tailored leadership. Our Arc MyDay mobile app with Frends is one example of well-connected mobile services which allow us to meet our customers’ expectations, used to constantly upgrading technologies”, says Kimmo Koivu, CEO at Arc Technology.

“In particular, the customisable pricing model of Frends and our close collaboration with HiQ – also in terms of R&D – are important for our customers”, says Kimmo Koivu, CEO at Arc Technology.

The Finnish Software Industry and Entrepreneur Association welcomes this joint venture.
“The cooperation between Arc Technology and HiQ is wonderful news. In the network of software entrepreneurs, the leading professionals meet each other and build collaborative ties, which ultimately benefits the end customer,” says Rasmus Roiha, Managing Director at Finnish Software Industry and Entrepreneur Association.

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.
