Octopus Energy’s Electroverse launches business EV charging
Octopus Energy's Electroverse is introducing a new solution for businesses, expanding the reach of its state-of-the-art electric vehicle (EV) public charging experience. This innovative product, currently in its Beta phase, offers businesses a streamlined online platform to manage their EV fleets, complete with customizable reporting features. It addresses the common challenges faced by businesses when dealing with an EV fleet.
Through a user-friendly dashboard, companies can access and download comprehensive charging history details, including the location, time, and cost of each charge.
“Electroverse is revolutionising EV public charging, with just one card and app to use with hundreds of charge point brands,” says Matt Davies, Director of Octopus Electroverse.
“With access to over 430,000 public charge points, we’re over the moon to now bring our simple and seamless EV charging solution to businesses. This will be a game-changer for companies making the switch and will help them manage their EVs easier than ever before.”
This information can be organised by group or individual drivers, providing a clear overview of the business's EV charges in a single consolidated invoice. Employees will no longer have to bear the burden of reimbursing public charging costs manually. The Electroverse EV roaming service app allows them to instantly pay at more than 430,000 public charge points across 470 global brands, simplifying the charging process with just a tap of the Electroverse card.
Additionally, drivers will have access to Electroverse's award-winning features, such as an interactive global map displaying chargers and their availability, a route-planner for journey planning, and in-car support through Apple CarPlay, AndroidAuto, and other platforms. This development aligns with the growing popularity of EVs, as evidenced by the delivery of over 20,000 new EVs in April alone*. With Electroverse's solution, businesses can confidently embrace the transition to electric vehicles.
