HiQ develops a digital knowledge hub for the city of Gothenburg

HiQ is selected by Gothenburg & Co to develop a digital knowledge hub for the tourism industry in Gothenburg.
“This is a perfect example of how digital technology can be used to develop and improve the tourism industry. And a project where we are a perfect partner. Really fun”, says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.

The European Union has appointed the city of Gothenburg as European Capital of Smart Tourism 2020. One of the focus areas is digitalisation. The knowledge hub that HiQ is commissioned to develop will make it possible to collect data from tourism, analyse it and provide knowledge for decision making about future development for the tourism industry.

”Digitalisation affects all parts of the society. This applies equally well to the tourism industry as well as to the automotive industry, the public sector and the retail segment. Gothenburg & Co is brave and forward-looking, and by taking advantage of the great benefits that technology development brings, we will be able to develop solutions that open up Gothenburg in a sustainable way for even more people, says Jerker Lindsten, Managing Director of HiQ Gothenburg.

HiQ has extensive experience in digital projects and platforms and wins the assignment after a procurement. The plan is to have a concept in place after the summer, and then test and further develop the solution.

“HiQ's technical know-how combined with their extensive experience in user-centric solutions and digital experiences make them a perfect partner for us for this. I am really looking forward to this collaboration and to jointly building the Sweden’s first digital knowledge hub for the tourism industry,” says Niklas Masuch, Project Manager at Gothenburg & Co.

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.

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.
