Commercial fleet operators have two different options nowadays when it comes to purchasing vehicles.
Currently combustion vehicles are often the preferred choice. Because when EV's are used
employers are paying for employee & vehicle downtime whenever an
EV needs to be recharged and no fast-charging station is guaranteed to be available.
The reduced revenue eliminates the cost savings through the EV’s reduced maintenance costs.
The EKAROS software service allows drivers to book charging spots at nearby fast-charging stations
reducing search & waiting time. Driver & vehicle down-time is reduced to the mandatory lunchbreak
while revenue per employee is drastically increased.
EKAROS is the only EMP (Electric Mobility Provider) that allows two-way communication between all
devices. Gathering vehicle data enables predictive scheduling and charge time suggestions.
Drivers can report broken or blocked charging spots via their mobile device.
Drivers are able to request charging spots and report blocked stations via smartphone.
Vehicles are equipped with a CAN-Bus hardware including an LTE module. The EKAROS
Server can request vehicle data like battery status and location.
Charge points are periodically checked and reservations can be requested by the EKAROS Server.
