EV Connect, Merge Electric Fleet Solutions collaborate on fleet deployments

EV Connect announced a new collaboration with fleet electrification services and finance company, Merge Electric Fleet Solutions. Through this relationship, EV Connect will provide Merge access to its fleet management platform to ensure equipment interoperability, understand real-world EV dynamics, and maintain uptime for its fleet customers. 

Merge provides companies with a clear and affordable path to emissions reduction through fleet electrification, the companies noted in a press release. The company’s electrification planning services are built on a data-driven analytics platform that maximizes economic and environmental benefits while minimizing operational risk. Merge currently works with fleet customers across market segments, including energy, healthcare, food and beverage, and home services. 

EV Connect operates one of the largest charging station networks in North America and offers a charging network software platform that employs remote management and advanced analytics capabilities to ensure reliable and consistent charging site operation. The EV Connect Fleet Management Platform provides a dashboard that brings together data streams from disparate systems to track a vehicle’s state-of-charge, ready time, and other relevant telematics data, with complete visibility into depot statistics to balance operations, insights, and user control.

Through the EV Connect fleet portal, owners and operators can view everything down to the lowest level of operation and control various aspects of their fleets, from dynamic power allocation that maximizes fleet readiness to real-time energy consumption and lower total cost of ownership. The charging management software supports all use cases, including depot charging, public charging and home charging and also offers a flexible API to facilitate data integration.
