Headlight AB was founded in 2001 and is an IT consultancy. Through rapid growth, the
company has established itself as an IT-partner to both successful private

succeed in a digital world. We’re good at what we do, we like to think
innovatively and always focus on the client’s needs, goals and real situation.
HiQ truly share our believes, and I’m really looking forward to joining forces.
Our value driven company culture is a perfect match with HiQ’s own values, and
together we will form an incredibly strong team, says Per-Olof Rosén, CEO
Headlight will join HiQ Sweden East with offices in Stockholm, Linköping, Norrköping,

Headlight Group also encapsulates the independent company Relight, which with
low code solutions and with the help of the platforms K2, UiPath and Outsystems
works on creating platforms for modern application development and
digitalization of organizations. Relight’s operation has clear synergies with
HiQ’s offering in system integration and process automation – as well as the
integration platform Frends. Frends currently has over 500 clients with

development and platform solutions is a perfect addition to the iPaaS platform
Frends as well as to HiQ’s vast knowledge of API development. Frends is a
modern and flexible integration platform that fits straight into our portfolio
of products for building stable and smooth applications. We will be incredibly
strong together”, says Marit Wester, CEO of Relight.
