Rally WRC at HiQ Arena

Two special stages at Rally Sweden this week will be held at HiQ Arena in Karlstad, the big arena usually called Färjestadstravet. This is the second consecutive year that HiQ partners up with World Rally Championship. "Innovative solutions make great differences in the pursuit of success, no matter if you drive a rally car or run a business," says Magnus Gens, Business Development Manager at HiQ International.

HiQ Arena

HiQ has a long history of being digital partner for major sporting events. We have improved the visitor experience at events spanning from Match Cup in Marstrand to the Alpine World Cup in Levi and the Indoor Championships in athletics. This year HiQ has also initiated a long-term cooperation with popular Swedish athlete – and winner of awards Jerringpriset and Bragdguldet – Lisa Nordén and her Team HiQ.
Thanks to the collaboration with Rally Sweden two super special stages will be held at HiQ Arena: The first special stage on Thursday night and also special stage 15 on Saturday.

The digital partnership with the rally also means that HiQ – using technology, creativity, design and communication to simplify for people – has invited some of Sweden’s top marketing managers to discuss how digitalisation affects marketing. "Advertising has never had a more important role than now, and there are very strong links between business development and marketing. It will be inspiring to have these discussions in the unique environment of a winter rally", says Erik Ridman, Head of Communications at HiQ.

HiQ expands in three Swedish cities following the acquisition of Headlight

Earlier this year, HiQ acquired Headlight Group, consisting of Headlight and Relight. This acquisition is an important part of HiQ’s expansion journey and will bring new job opportunities to the cities of Västerås, Örebro and Borlänge due to the great recruitment need. The news comes just weeks after the acquisition was announced and is an important part of HiQ’s effort to become Northern Europe’s leading tech consulting firm.

– 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. This is a good step for us on our expansion journey. Let’s go big!, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.

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.
