ChargePoint’s software allows integration for fleets en route, at home

Organizations can purchase ChargePoint’s Home Flex residential charging station for drivers, enabling reimbursement for home charging.

ChargePoint introduced new enhancements to its software offering, enabling electric and mixed fuel fleets to find, use, and pay for charging from a single application, including driver reimbursement when charging their company EV at home, the company said.

Derived from the line of in-dash software solutions ChargePoint supplies to more than a dozen automotive manufacturers, the software is available to fleet operators in app format, according to ChargePoint. For larger fleet management companies, the option to integrate the technology into their existing branded fleet offering via ChargePoint’s open API is available.

Organizations that manage take-home fleets can purchase ChargePoint’s Home Flex residential charging station for drivers, enabling reimbursement for home charging. With this integration, company EV drivers can charge at home, eliminating time and labor costs of stopping during the workday to fuel, while simultaneously reducing costs thanks to lower residential electricity rates, ChargePoint said. When a driver needs to charge on the road, the software enables access to more than 900,000 global charging locations. An early partner integrating this ChargePoint technology within its offering is fuel card provider WEX.

ChargePoint said that the software includes a comprehensive portfolio of solutions that enable fleet operators to gain insight and metrics into driver performance, including preferred pricing, proactive monitoring, and reporting. Reports on charging activity, energy usage and costs will also help fleet operators identify opportunities for efficiency based on when and where drivers charge, the company said.
