HiQ to be digital partner with Norrköping Municipality

HiQ is initiating a partnership with Norrköping Municipality’s digitalisation department. HiQ will support the municipality’s efforts to develop digital solutions, systems and services that improve everyday life for the residents of Norrköping.
“This is a very exciting collaboration with a forward-looking municipality, where we can put our expertise in technology, design and communication to work right away to simplify things for people,” says Patrik Holm, managing director at HiQ in Östergötland.

Norrköping Municipality is one of Sweden’s most digitalised municipalities according to Cloud Republic’s Digitalization Index, which was launched in March. The municipality works actively with digital technology and digital channels to improve things for its citizens, getting them involved and interested as well as ensuring that residents are satisfied. Its collaboration with HiQ is yet another step in this development.

“Norrköping Municipality is on an exciting journey, and digitalisation is a very important part of its development efforts. It’s a matter of increasing accessibility and creating services that are easy to understand as well as creating more efficient work processes within the municipal organisation. HiQ’s expertise in such a broad spectrum of areas makes them a perfect partner for this continuous work,” says Johan Högne, director of digitalisation for Norrköping Municipality.

Within the framework of the collaboration, HiQ will work with the municipality’s own organisation on things such as concept development, communication platforms, mobile applications, tech support for operational processes, AI, machine learning, automation and VR/AR.

“Norrköping Municipality is one of the foremost pioneers in the public sector when it comes to digitalisation. I’m deeply impressed that they so wholeheartedly and tirelessly use new technologies to improve all areas of the municipality’s operations. This is the modern way to create a competitive municipality, and besides, I’m a very proud resident here,” says Kalle Lindau, account manager at HiQ in Norrköping.

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.
