STOCKHOLM, November 18 /PRNewswire/ -- We're proud to announce that SJ has been a Hyper Island learning partner since April 2009.

In a learning partnership the Hyper Island student's creativity and deep knowledge of the way to handle the digital media concept is combined with a partner's ambition to move on forward - to a bright future.

- The Hyper Island students have exceeded our expectations by far every time. The inspiration we got from the students is helping us in our day-to-day work to get closer to our objective: using the new digital media as main media, says Maria Hoglund; Director Broad Media at SJ.

Her colleague Claes Lindholtz, Director Customer Program Customer Analysis at SJ agree:

- During the process of building a mobile phone prototype, the Hyper Island students where able to understand our rather complex IT and Business demands, and turned it into a well-designed and user-friendly application. The prototype have recently been presented at the event Oracle Open World in San Francisco, and got large attention as a social CRM tool.

SJ AB is the main player on the Swedish railway market with almost 50 percent of the total market shares and a turnover of approximately 9.03 billion SEK in 2008. SJ carries about 115 000 passengers every day.

- Working together with SJ has been incredibly rewarding for us as well as a natural step in taking our Learning Partner concept to the next level, says Mattias Hansson, CEO at Hyper Island.
