EV Connect has announced the general availability of its Fleet Charging Management Platform. The new fleet management solution is designed to provide complete control over fleets and their energy consumption for fleet service providers as well as in-house-managed vehicle fleets.
As a lead customer, the City of Porterville, California is now using the EV Connect fleet solution for real-time charger and vehicle data, automatic and manual charging prioritization, and energy management to help mitigate on-peak energy costs. In addition to serving more than 20 of its own vans and buses, the city can now optimize its charging schedules for demand response, manage charging costs, and ensure uptime across a multi-vendor charging environment.
The EV Connect Fleet Management Platform presents a dashboard that can track a vehicle’s state-of-charge, ready time and overall status, with complete visibility into depot specifics. The charging management software is designed to support all use cases, including parking lots, distribution centers, transit hubs and other publicly accessible locations. Thanks to collaborations with various payment, telematics and fleet management software providers, the software enables fleets to manage energy, track fuel time, and notify managers of potential problems through real-time alerts.
“Electrified fleets represent one of the biggest opportunities for clean transportation, and fleet owners and operators need a flexible, reliable, and frictionless EV charging solution that maximizes vehicle uptime,” said Jon Leicester, VP of Fleet at EV Connect. “The EV Connect Fleet platform provides the freedom to deploy many different charging hardware options, serve all kinds of vehicle types, and control cost as well as revenue, all from within a single platform.”
