InCharge Energy InControl 4.0 update enhances insights into EV fleet charging

InCharge unveiled an update to its EV fleet management platform which provides real-time visibility and control over charging infrastructure.

InCharge Energy recently released the InControl 4.0 milestone update to its charge management software (CMS) platform for fleets. In the latest iteration of the CMS, InCharge said clients and partners will be able to access “Depot View,” which provides insights into fleet vehicle readiness and real-time status updates, InCharge said.

The company said it also enhanced the user interface to be tailored to the specific needs of EV charging, with streamlined data display, persistent filters and the ability to favorite specific chargers.

“This is our most significant update since launching InControl in 2021, and it represents a major shift on how we look at EV fleet charge management,” Russell Schmidt, vice president of digital products at InCharge Energy said.

Depot View is a feature that allows users to create a virtual parking lot, associating chargers with parking stalls. This enables real-time monitoring of each charger’s status and vehicle readiness, including State of Charge (SoC) updates and instant notifications for errors, InCharge said.

The new Depot View allows fleet operators to:

  • View the current State of Charge (SoC) of vehicles;
  • Sort and filter charging stations by status;
  • Access detailed charging session information, including duration, SoC, energy dispensed, vehicle identity, and power levels;
  • Identify and request service for charging errors.

Additional InControl 4.0 enhancements, including a complete redesign of the dashboard that puts fleet and vehicle operations first, underscore the software’s unmatched functionality and further differentiate it, the company said. Included in these updates is a suite of widgets that provide both real-time insights and overviews highlighting patterns over time, thus supporting data-driven decisions.
