ChargePoint, a provider of networked solutions for charging electric vehicles, has expanded its fleet management product line with a new suite of software solutions for both mixed fuel and all-electric fleets to streamline their operations and lower their total cost of ownership.
The platform has three core software solutions: charging station management, vehicle telematics, and mobility services such as over the road session reimbursement and roaming. These deliver end-to-end capabilities for fleet managers, drive higher uptime and performance, and can be implemented as a complete package or as individual solutions, the company says.
“We understand the concern fleet operators have over the investment needed to transition fleets from liquid fuel to electric, including the cost of the infrastructure needed to charge EVs,” says Michael Hughes, chief revenue officer at ChargePoint. “By bringing a wide scope of fleet management applications under one platform, we are helping fleet operators identify and realize significant savings to their total cost of ownership. This software gives them better control over and visibility into their fleet operations, as well as the ability to decrease operating expenses over the ownership cycle.”
ChargePoint’s fleet software platform is designed to work with a broad array of charging station manufacturers and any electric vehicle. With open API and developer partnerships, ChargePoint’s suite can fully integrate with the tools fleet operators already use to run their operations, such as third-party telematics, route planning, dispatch and maintenance systems.
Moreover, the suite’s native telematics capabilities are purpose-built for electric vehicles and their chargers. This enables fleet operators to access deeper performance insights which optimize battery health, vehicle state of charge, and the performance of their electric fleet.
