HiQ and Scania develop an app that gives Scania customers faster assistance during unscheduled downtime

By simplifying and accelerating communication through a simple app between service technicians and Scania Assistance, customers and drivers facing unscheduled downtime are getting much faster, better help. A big win, as it shortens the vehicle’s standstill time.
“It's a terrific solution and another perfect example of how we use technology to simplify and improve people’s lives,” says Helena Forsmark, Managing Director of HiQ Stockholm.

With regular maintenance, a Scania vehicle will offer the customer trouble-free operation and a long service life. If the unexpected happens, Scania Assistance is available 24/7/365 – a professional service that Scania offers to all its customers. Together with HiQ, Scania has now developed an app that further improves service for Scania’s customers. With the app, service technicians receive an assignment with a description and any images of the incident from Scania Assistance. The app also shows the location of the truck, allowing assistance to arrive faster. At the same time, the customer gets continuous updates on the status of the vehicle in real time.

“The solution we have built together with HiQ is an important part of Scania’s overall digitalisation efforts,” says Robert Melin Mori, Project Manager at Scania Assistance.

The project is part of a strategic collaboration between Scania and HiQ. Thanks to this solution, Scania simplifies its customers’ work while delivering a more automated process for service cases.

“Scania is a major strategic partner for HiQ, and we are very proud to work with them. Together, we create solutions that clearly improve people’s lives – the vehicles become both safer and more efficient. This is a perfect example of when technology development contributes to a more sustainable world,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.

“HiQ’s broad expertise in digitalisation and advanced system development make them a perfect partner for us. They’re easy to work with and we can move quickly from concept to finished solution, which is a critical parameter for us if we want to remain the leading player in the assistance business for heavy vehicles,” says Michaela Boye, Managing Director at Scania Assistance.

The app is being developed for both iOS and Android, so service technicians can use it on their regular mobile phones. A first version of the app has just been launched. HiQ’s assignment consisted of a feasibility study, service design, UX and development, including integration with Scania’s existing systems.

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.
