The growing popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) has, naturally, led to a corresponding increase in the need for effective EV charging management analytics. In fact, it’s never been more important for business owners to understand the various factors that can affect the efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and possible revenue streams of their EV-charging operation.
In this article, we're talking all about the power of EV charging management analytics using Spirii Connect – including the different types of data that can be collected, and the many advantages of staying on top of your data.
Here’s everything you need to know…
Access detailed insights with the Dashboard
Spirii Connect has an extensive toolset that can help you with scaling and optimizing your EV business.
The Dashboard is the nerve center of your charging business. It provides a comprehensive overview of all charging stations under your control, with at-a-glance metrics like charging location occupancy and energy consumption, as well as more granular data such as usage patterns and charging location performance.
This rich insight gives you the ability to make informed decisions about your charging infrastructure, all from one spot.
In the dashboard you’ll find:
- Transaction revenue
- Charging heatmap and occupancy (showing when your chargers are most used)
- Live charger status – how many chargers are live or offline, alongside idling time
- Amount of CO2 saved
An overview of:
- Active users
- Most used locations
- Average consumption
- Average charge duration
The insights you’ll glean from the dashboard are invaluable decision-making tools, helping you take swift action to improve your charging business and boost its revenue.
Let’s say, for example, that you observe lower than average charging for a specific charging station on a given day, or at a specific time. With that insight, you can incentivize EV drivers to charge more across the entire day by adjusting prices or offering discounts with vouchers. It's a win-win for everyone.
Easy charger monitoring
Charging is a vital part of the EV ecosystem. As such, it’s essential that EV charging stations are readily available and function properly when needed.
Uptime is critical to ensuring that EV chargers are always ready for use, which should make it a primary concern for any successful EV charging network.
As with any physical hardware, though, charge points can encounter various human or technical errors from time to time – so it’s important to stay on top of things.
Luckily, Spirii Connect arms you with all the tools you’ll need to do just that. The Operations Center is your secret weapon here, as it includes a range of features that allow you to:
- Monitor and identify errors on your charging network
- Analyze and troubleshoot those errors
- Fix errors remotely
These features are available for all Charge Point Operators in Spirii Connect, helping you run a frictionless EV business wherever you go. Effective EV charging management analytics – and individual charger monitoring – can help streamline your business, ensuring that charging data is tracked and analyzed correctly, and that chargers stay online and ready for use as often as possible.
With Spirii Connect, businesses can ensure that their EV charging operations remain efficient, profitable, and reliable.
