Fortunately, visionary companies like Jibe are leading the way in providing custom EV solutions that cater to the needs of businesses. Jibe’s products and services enable companies to have a unique EV experience that is tailored to their specific use case. This is made possible by moving away from the traditional monolithic architecture of the Charge Point Management System (CPMS) and adopting the more advanced EV Architecture 2.0. By decoupling EV technicalities from location-specific services and needs, businesses can provide a more seamless and enjoyable experience for their customers.
As we undergo the electric vehicle revolution, it’s worth considering the parallels to the auto vehicle revolution of the previous century. While the basic functionality of a car such as starting, driving, and stopping has remained constant, improvements in safety standards and advertising have changed the way cars are perceived. However, what truly sets modern cars apart is the integration of all systems via sophisticated software engines, giving a seamless and powerful driving experience. In this way, the electric car of today is vastly different from those of the past.
As we move forward, software integration will play a key role in the continued evolution of electric vehicles and with them the connected charging services.
To provide more concrete examples of what is possible, I will be publishing a series of articles that build upon this first post. Every other week, I will share a new article focusing on a few specific use cases where I have worked closely with customers and software delivery teams. These articles will cover topics such as EV reservation, Customer Loyalty concepts in EVs, Parking and Charging, and Energy Management.
To sum up, it is vital for businesses to prioritize convenience and accessibility in their EV charging infrastructure as electric vehicles become increasingly popular. Thankfully there are emerging software companies that have a deep understanding of business components and offer custom EV solutions tailored to meet the unique needs of businesses. In other words, there is still hope for a seamless and enjoyable EV experience for the end customers, us. Stay tuned for my upcoming articles to learn more about the possibilities of custom EV solutions.
