A recent report by JD Power indicated roughly one in five public charging attempts fail, leading to driver frustration and dissatisfaction. To combat this trend, ABM is announcing the US nationwide roll out of its EV Charging Network to pair with its other customised turnkey solutions for virtually every commercial application.
These solutions allow for the design and implementation of the right EV strategy. This comprehensive approach encompasses charger equipment, installation, maintenance, and upgrades, ensuring a seamless and reliable EV charging experience for both facility owners and drivers.
Facility owners and operators leveraging the ABM EV Charging Network will be able customise the features offered through their chargers with integrations such as customer loyalty programs, entry badges, and parking systems. This software enables clients such as hotels or retail stores to directly connect their parking lot chargers to rewards programs, and private operators to ensure that only authorised drivers are using their chargers. The software also supports various digital payment processing options, including card, QR code, or ABM app, optimising revenue, and customer experience.
To promote improved charger uptime, chargers on the network receive 24/7 charging service delivery, monitoring, diagnostics, and recovery. Combining the network services with ABM’s expert maintenance services provides owners and operators with real-time diagnosis and rapid repair for any issues that occur over a charger’s lifetime.
The ABM EV Charging Network allows for real-time updates and enhancements to its charging stations, providing continuous access to the latest features.
With over 30,000 chargers installed to date, ABM is expanding its solutions through this network, which can be paired with its Level 2 and 3 charging stations and hardware to meet the needs of today’s drivers. The company’s experts provide integrated turnkey solutions, including facility review, project mapping, financing, charging equipment, installation, ongoing support, and continuous guidance. Additionally, through ABM RavenVolt’s turnkey microgrid solutions, the company can provide energy and power resiliency.
While the majority of ABM’s installations to date have been in private commercial settings, as ABM's public EV charging network grows across the US, drivers will be able to find charger locations and seamlessly charge, pay, and monitor all through the ABM EV OS app, which is now available for download on iOS and Android devices. In addition to the app, all public ABM chargers offer the straightforward "Scan, Pay, and Charge" option for an effortless user experience.
