More than just EV charging
Offer smart charging solutions
Ask customers when their vehicle needs to be fully charged. Automatically start and stop charging when electricity rates are low, and energy sources are carbon-neutral.
Expand V2G programs
Include cars that aren’t vehicle-to-grid enabled in your program. Retrieve the state of charge and automatically start and stop charging those vehicles to balance electric grid load.
Enhance EV route and trip planning
Help customers plan trips based on their desired destination, their vehicle’s current state of charge, and the locations of charging stations along the way.
Power your rewards program
Reward customers for charging within your network and incentivize them to charge at times when carbon offsets are most significant.
Draw valuable business insights
Identify charging vehicles
Using a vehicle’s VIN, charging status, and location, determine which customers’ cars are currently charging.
Predict usage spikes
Based on your customer’s charging habits and their vehicle’s location and remaining range, predict when and where they will want to recharge.
Understand customer loyalty
Decide where to place future chargers based on your network’s product usage and your customers’ out-of-network charging habits.
