A new suite of software solutions is designed to simplify the management of both all-electric and mixed-fuel fleets. 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, help lower the cost of ownership, drive higher uptime and performance, and can be implemented as a complete package or as individual solutions.
ChargePoint’s fleet software platform is designed to work with a broad array of charging station manufacturers and any electric vehicle. For instance, the suite can fully integrate with the tools fleet operators already use to run their operations such as 3rd party telematics, route planning, dispatch, and maintenance systems.
The suite’s native telematics capabilities are purpose-built for electric vehicles and their chargers. The company says this enables fleet operators to access deeper performance insights which optimise battery health, vehicle state of charge, and the performance of their electric fleet. Fleet managers can benefit from EV-specific features such as critical data captured by EV charging stations and vehicles, real-time visibility into vehicle location, and battery telematics that can proactively detect issues at an early stage.
For fleet operators that have over the road charging needs, the platform enables them to manage charging activities no matter where their drivers need to go — at work, on-route or at home — with seamless mobile integration. This integration can occur on the ChargePoint mobile app, or another mobile application via ChargePoint APIs. Drivers across North America and Europe have on-the-go access to more than 750,000 charging ports on the ChargePoint network and can even manage payment through integrations with fuel card providers. For take-home fleets, the platform enables reimbursement of electricity dispensed at home.
