HiQ’s Frends join forces with Visma Connect, entering Dutch market as a first step

Visma Connect, the reporting technology market leader, and HiQ’s integration platform Frends will deliver Frends to Visma Connect’s rapidly growing integration services client base to the Dutch market. 

– It’s great to see Frends expand to even more countries. The demand for integration platforms is increasing and it shows at the speed in which Frends is growing, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.

The demand for integration services is growing rapidly. Most applications today are delivered as Software as a Service (SaaS). SaaS software companies and their clients are looking for user-friendly and powerful integrations to maximize efficiency, provide new services and harness data value. At the same time, there are many companies that still use on-premises systems that could benefit from connectivity. A platform like Frends can be seamlessly used for both situations. Visma Connect, the reporting technology market leader, and HiQ’s integration platform Frends will deliver the platform to Visma Connect’s rapidly growing integration services client base.

– Low-Code integrations seem to amaze even the experienced integrators with flexibility and extendibility. Final touch is the pricing of Frends, which is, first of all, public and reasonable. Visma Connect has demonstrated the Frends expertise to several customers already, says Juha Moisio, VP, Global sales at HiQ’s Frends.

The Frends integration platform empowers organizations to develop, manage and secure all API integrations and process automation within one powerful platform. Frends provides a lean, low-code and visual interface to build, deploy, manage and monitor all API integrations. Visma Connect’s integration specialists offer full-service support and can set up integration processes in Frends. Depending on the customer's needs, they can also maintain and develop additional integrations. Visma Connect offers integration services to a wide range of companies and governments. These services range from consultancy, a dedicated team that helps you manage large roll outs, and full lifecycle management for APIs and integrations.

– Data sharing is one of the pillars of the digital society. Frends offers an intuitive, low-code and very powerful enterprise application integration platform that allows for secure and efficient API integrations. Exactly what you need for effective data transfer, says Kim Andersen, MD at Visma Connect.

As a result of the demand for the Frends platform, it is now entering the Dutch market with Visma Connect. Visma will resell Frends as an offering to their clients, to help them launch integrations faster to market. Together with the client base of Visma they will help a lot of companies with their integration, on Frends’ quest to take over yet another country in Europe.

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.
