London, 14 December 2020 – EO Charging (EO), the electric vehicle charge-point and charging software developer, announced that it has collaborated with Geotab, a global leader in IoT and connected transportation and LEVL, a leading UK Value Added Reseller of Geotab and EV partner of the year, to create Europe’s first integrated EV charger and telematics solution for commercial fleets.
Through this integration, Geotab’s software will provide EO’s customers with accurate vehicle data including live confirmation of vehicle registration attached to a charger, current mileage and real-time state of charge (SOC), enabling customers to better manage their electric fleet and charging cycles.
Key benefits (highlighted by LEVL customers) of telematics for fleets include:
- Save up to 50% on fuel costs – ICE Ford Transit average 22p per mile compared to electric vehicles averaging at 11p per mile.
- Accident and insurance costs cut by up to 40%
- Drivers are up to 50% more productive whilst on-route
- Driver behaviour improvements result in 27% more range in an EV
- 33% reduction in poor driving incidents when adopting EV
Charlie Jardine, CEO and Founder of EO said: “We’re excited to launch the first integrated charging and telematics system in Europe and we’re confident it will help accelerate the rate and efficiency of fleet electrification.
“Combining Geotab’s fleet management software with our charge point management platform (EO Cloud) will help to create industry leading EV fleets with greater range, performance safety and productivity. This collaboration enhances our end-to-end fleet electrification solutions, which are used by many of the world’s biggest businesses and fleet operators, and provides even greater analysis and performance optimisation to our offering.”
The integration relationship will be facilitated from the UK by LEVL Telematics – Geotab European EV Reseller of the year 2020, a provider of fleet management and telematics solutions specialising in the end-to-end EV solution.
