Swedish IT and management consulting company HiQ International AB is to develop an information system for the Finnish Trotting and Breeding Association, Suomen Hippos.

The system, known as Heppa, will be used by the organisation for the administration of horse breeding and trotting in Finland. The solution will replace a system that has been used by Hippos for more than 20 years.

The current system is used for the administration of a central register of Finnish horses as well as the management of several types of horse racing and breeding-related data. The new system will include several interactive services, HiQ said.

At present the system is mainly used by personnel at Hippos House, race tracks and horse breeding associations, but the pool of users will expand as the system is updated.

The new Heppa system is scheduled to be operational by autumn 2007.

The value of the contract was not revealed.
