highQ information brochure

We bring visions to life

Intelligent industry solutions from highQ set standards in the areas of mobility, controlling and benchmarking.
highQ delivers contemporary solutions for intermodal and interoperable mobility, for both public transport and motorised individual transport. Numerous awards confirm the innovation-driven approach of our company, founded in 1996. Among other things, highQ has been awarded the "Innovative through Research" seal of quality by the Stifterverband der Deutschen Wissenschaft.

Furthermore, highQ develops high-performance software solutions for the financial sector as well as for company benchmarking. The European star classification in the hotel industry also originates from highQ.

High quality since 1996

In the field of mobility, highQ aims to make public transport smoother and more environmentally friendly. 

At the heart of this is the concept of the mobility platform, which digitally connects various transport service providers; the first projects have already successfully gone live in Osnabrück and the Schwabenbund. highQ currently employs around 60 people at five locations: Freiburg, Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Stuttgart.

With innovative software solutions, we support companies, municipalities and financial institutions in the effective planning, execution, optimisation and monitoring of their tasks. Our IT solutions make public transport smoother and more environmentally friendly, provide more transparency in real estate projects and identify potential improvements in company structures and processes.

Then there is smart city status::
cities share their traffic strategies with us and open the interfaces to their existing systems. In line with the motto "Reward rather than punish", citizens can be rewarded for adapting their behaviour according to a city's traffic management strategy. The innovative and already very successfully implemented principle of incentivisation follows, among others, our concept ZEITMEILEN.

Social commitment internally and externally

Taking social responsibility through donations and sponsorship is part of the company tradition. In selecting the recipients of donations, we ensure a good mix of different commitments and a balanced ratio of regional and international organisations. In recent years, non-profit organisations and projects in the fields of humanitarian aid, health, culture, sport and animal welfare have been supported. 


highQ employees can also suggest organisations that are close to their hearts. 

Since August 2021, highQ has been one of the 15 FAIR ways partner companies of SC Freiburg. The FAIR-ways-Partner-Award the FAIR ways Sponsorship Prize each year.
It is given in partial amounts to non-profit institutions and projects from the region that engage in education, physical activity, environment and solidarity, just like the sports club.

We also support the Freiburg Sacristans, the American football department of the Freiburger Turnerschaft von 1844 sports club. Our commitment promotes, among other things, youth work and socially disadvantaged team members. 

With mobility that benefits the common good
towards a better future

Our services and products for 
public transport are an important contribution to 
mobility that benefits the common good

Mission: To advance the transport transition


Socially responsible mobility requires a change in habits. With innovative digital solutions, we want to convince people that flexible mobility behaviour sustainably improves the quality of life.

Vision: Better quality of life for all


Urban streets and squares will no longer be dominated by traffic but will belong to the people again. Rural areas remain attractive for young and old. Thanks to intelligent, multimodal mobility, everyone can reach their destination in a socially responsible and environmentally friendly way.

Our commitment to sustainability is one of our core values

Our actions should therefore be distinguished by social, ecological and economic sustainability across all areas of the company. 

Climate-friendly from partner to paper

We also focus on sustainability when choosing our suppliers:


From climate-neutral hosting partners, to hotels with high environmental standards for overnight stays on business trips, to regional fruit suppliers. For business trips, we forego flights and use trains and public transportation whenever feasible.

In Hamburg and at our headquarters in Freiburg, we source 100% green electricity, which we also use to charge the electric cars and e-bikes in Freiburg. Since 2024, our company cars have been either hybrid or purely electric. In addition, an electric sharing car and an electric cargo bike can be used at our location in Freiburg.

Even seemingly small things make us more sustainable step by step: LED lights, smart heating, digital instead of paper – and if printing is unavoidable, then on recycled paper. Likewise, the use of online meeting tools is an integral part of our business routine, allowing us to participate in events or meetings online when sensible.

climate-friendly employer


Because we handle resources with particular care and, for example, make our business trips by bus and train whenever possible. Our social responsibility as a company and employer is also reflected in the award.

This includes our FAIR ways membership at SC Freiburg as well as our values and opportunities we offer to all highQ employees: from further development to a good work-life balance.
