HiQ develops a smart destination website for Eskilstuna

HiQ has developed visiteskilstuna.se for Destination Eskilstuna. It strengthens Eskiltuna’s attractiveness as a tourist destination for its residents, event arrangers and visitors. The aim was to create a mobile-friendly, easy-to-use and inspirational visitor site that generates a long-term increase in the number of visitors in and around Eskilstuna.
“This is one project of many that we are working on for the tourism sector in Sweden. We are very happy that Eskilstuna has chosen us as their partner to make the region’s industrial culture available to as many people as possible,” says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.

The new website aims to help more people discover Eskilstuna. The site is mainly adapted for mobile use and contains inspiration, guides and tips that portray Eskilstuna as an environmentally smart industry town.

“Marketing destinations is a clear area in which there are great opportunities using digitalisation. Using digital technology, we help the tourism sector develop, as culture, tourist attractions and events also become more accessible for tourists from Sweden and abroad,” says Anders Nilsson, Managing Director of HiQ Mälardalen.

During development, the focus has been on creating functionality to automatically retrieve and present events, meeting places and conferences, based on the criteria determined by the editors. The site will also be given AI functionality later that will allow it to learn what type of information visitors consume, based on a number of variables such as season, weather, weekday and location.

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.
