“Our solution was to build a platform capable of smoothly and easily handling charging station payment transactions,” says Mathieu Sanichar, Service Delivery Manager, GreenFlux. “And our solution not only handles transactions, it also optimizes how energy is used and delivered, a key factor going forward.”
The EV Charging Station Payment Solution
The GreenFlux platform was so successful the company stopped building and installing charging stations, choosing to instead focus purely on the platform – a classic IoT move from products to services. Today, the GreenFlux platform manages charging stations across the globe, acting as a partner and providing a service for other companies who want to sell EV charging station charge cards.
“We offer a solution to a complicated piece of the charging station solution,” explains Sanichar. “We install the chargers, hook the providers up to the power grid, connect them with the GreenFlux system, and then every time someone uses a charging station, they swipe their card or use an app to start and complete a charging session. On the Greenflux end, we keep track of how many kilowatt hours are used and bill the customer.”
