IQONIQ has made a lot of progress in establishing itself so far, and we look forward to providing additional support to ensure that its many great features, and overarching vision, are well-understood across the industry. We have been very impressed with the ambition shown by IQONIQ, and we look forward to supporting them in this exciting journey.”

Now, as we prepare to launch our application later this year, we are very happy to team up with BCW, whose experience in this field will be of great value to us. With these challenging times around us, we remain more convinced than ever that IQONIQ provides the all-in-one solution that so many fans are asking for.”
