HiQ launches new website for its integration platform FRENDS

The demand for HiQ's integration platform FRENDS is increasing. In connection with a Nordic expansion, we launch a completely new website; www.frends.com
“License sales are continually on the rise, and we are investing to meet demand throughout the Nordics.”, says Lars Stugemo, CEO and President of HiQ.

Technology development and digitization continue at high speed. More and more products become connected and new digital services are developed and launched all the time. The global pandemic has further accelerated digitalization and shown that the need for well-functioning digital solutions and platforms is great.

The remedy is the HiQ FRENDS integration platform, a software layer that connects otherwise disjointed systems to deliver a unified solution to customers. It acts as a safe and flexible channel for communication between multiple systems — enabling integration and automation simultaneously. As we speak, virtually all companies deepen their cloud dependency and FRENDS becomes an essential backbone to nearly every business.

The platform also allows a company to expand its offering without the need to build new bespoke services or further develop existing systems. Instead, companies can integrate with other software providers that already offer. The result is a unified and more robust solution for the end customers. As technology development progresses, more and more services and systems become interconnected. The increased complexity of companies’ IT platforms increases over time the need for integration services and platforms such as FRENDS.

“We make several new deals in Finland and initiatives in Sweden continue to develop as planned. By the end of the quarter we have more than 350 active licenses out among satisfied clients”, says Jukka Rautio, Managing Director of HiQ in Finland.

The FRENDS integration platform is a software service that is developed, managed and marketed by HiQ. It is delivered as a subscription service, a so-called Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service (eiPaaS). HiQ Frends is aligned with the integration consultancy services that HiQ also provides, and has become a key feature in HiQ’s offerings for digitalization and IT-architecture.

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.
