ABB acquires EV charging payment solution startup

Vourity’s cloud-based payment solution can be operated through a pay station or directly integrated into the charging station.

ABB E-mobility acquired Vourity, a Swedish startup with award-winning cloud-based technology for payment of EV charging. ABB said Vourity’s technology simplifies the driver’s life at the charging station, eliminating the need for numerous phone apps or payment tags. Its technology enables rapid, secure payment for EV charging, using a wide variety of payment options including credit cards, mobile pay and RFID tags. Vourity’s cloud-based solution can be operated through a pay station or directly integrated into the charging station.

“What impressed us most about Vourity’s technology is just how simple and easy it is to use and that’s what we aspire to in our systems, so it’s a perfect strategic fit for ABB E-mobility,” Daniel Alarcon-Rubio, chief digital officer at ABB E-mobility, said. “The addition of both the people and the technology from Vourity will strongly enhance and accelerate the development of our own systems and enable us to better serve our customers.”

The addition of Vourity brings a key element to ABB E-mobility’s technology stack, allowing it to integrate seamless payment systems into its customer offering, ABB said.
