What Charge Point Installers often ask about
What is an EV charge point management platform?
A charge point management platform is a software solution that enables the management, maintenance, and monetization of a network of charging stations across a wide range of use cases and business models. It generally consists of a back office, web portal, and mobile apps designed to optimize core business operations, minimize maintenance costs, and offer EV drivers a smooth charging experience.
Why do Charge Point Installers need an EV charging management platform?
There are several reasons why you may need EV charging management software. It mainly depends on your preferred business model and the following are some of the most common scenarios:
Upsell by adding software to your hardware
Help your clients find the most appropriate software for their charging stations. Consult them on the required features for their use case – payments, billing, tariff management, smart energy management, etc.
Earn recurring revenue

Easily grow from Installer to Charge Point Operator (CPO)
Businesses are looking for turn-key solutions. You are capable of delivering, installing, and maintaining charging stations. Yet businesses want installers who provide the software to control charge points, accept payments and offer corporate billing. With the AMPECO EV Charging platform branded for your business, you can gain a competitive advantage over all major charge point operators.
What should a charge point management software include?
Your EV charging management platform should integrate charging infrastructure management, end-user services, and smart energy management solutions suited to your needs. It should also be able to provide real-time visibility and auto-fault recovery algorithms, as well as user management, roaming capabilities, and hardware flexibility.
It is critical to have the flexibility to develop pricing plans and tariff models that best suit your or your clients’ business models.
To have complete control over the money flow, you should be able to integrate with a payment processor of your choosing. As a result, consumer payments may be accepted directly, with no further charges or delays. Smart energy management features such as dynamic load balancing and vehicle-to-grid (V2G) are essential for power load management, ensuring that the grid is never overloaded.
How do I choose an EV charging management software provider?
Once you have shortlisted EV charging management software candidates based on feature set and response time, we recommend you consider their experience, client portfolio and case studies. Working with a software vendor who is backed by your direct or indirect competitors is a risk you want to avoid. Take a look at the company’s investors to make sure there is no conflict of interest that could put you at a disadvantage when competing for the same customers.
After all, choose the candidate who best meets your needs.
