Operating a fleet of electric vehicles requires more than just purchasing vehicles and installing the infrastructure.

It’s about ensuring and optimizing charging reliability. Discover the benefits of using a smart charging management platform to optimize your fleet charging operations.

What are the features of a smart platform?

Smart charging management platforms allow you to manage your charging stations remotely. Without this feature, charging initiates automatically upon vehicle connection, offering no control. With a smart management platform, you can begin charging at optimal times and regulate power delivery to each vehicle. This approach prevents simultaneous charging, reducing grid-demand spikes and minimizing overall electricity costs throughout the year.

A smart charging management platform is also able to create personalized charging plans for your fleet. This means going beyond the standard power cap for a charging station or site and setting up charging schedules that take into account your electric vehicles’ specific energy needs: usage cycles, departure and return times, route distance, weather forecasts, and more.

Additionally, the platform can send you alerts if there’s an unusual charging stop, a major issue at your site, or if a vehicle hasn’t reached its ideal charge level after a session. It’s like having your fleet operations under a watchful eye, giving you peace of mind.

Benefits that make life easier for fleet managers

  • Charging Reliability: Rest easy knowing that your electric vehicles are always ready to hit the road by monitoring their state of charge and receiving alerts when problems occur.
  • Cost reduction and optimization: Save money by reducing grid demand with optimized charging schedules for your entire fleet.
  • Centralized view of your operations: View all charging activity across your sites from a single dashboard, accessible 24 hours a day.
  • Data Analysis: Dive deeper into your operations with detailed, platform-generated reports on charging sessions and maximum power usage at each charging station.

Choosing the right platform for your fleet

Look for these characteristics when choosing a smart charging management platform:

  • Agnostic: It’s compatible with most vehicles, charging stations, and technologies on the market.
  • Intuitive: It’s easy to understand and use, ideally offering various user profiles.
  • Scalable: It proposes regular updates and enhancements to meet your operational needs.
  • Secure: It meets development and high-security standards to protect your operations.
  • Reliable: It operates smoothly and is consistently accessible.

If you operate more than one site, opt for a multi-site platform that consolidates all locations into one convenient view.

In short, a smart charging management platform is the key to timely and cost-effective vehicle charging.

Designed in-house by a multidisciplinary team of developers and AI specialists in collaboration with our clients, the Cleo platform is the ideal solution to optimize the process and meet your specific needs.
