Our focus is on selling products and solutions linked to them. Other consulting activities are being taken over by HiQ, which has a strong position in the consulting market,” says Anders Visell, CEO of Indentive.

The staff will change over to HiQ with start from May 2018. All employees moved from Indentive will be integrated into HiQ’s regular operations in Linköping.

“We are very pleased about our agreement with Indentive, which provides an opportunity for us to grow with skilled employees. We have been working on building our cloud, front-end, back-end and embedded offer in the region for a long time, so this deal fits us perfectly. We are also looking forward to a deeper collaboration with Indentive on their products. And we’d like to extend a warm welcome to all new employees from Indentive,” says Patrik Holm, Managing Director of HiQ in Linköping.

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.
