Kople is switching to the Driivz software operating system and will migrate its network of more than 7,000 charging points for electric vehicles to the Driivz platform.

The Israeli company says Kople selected Driivz because of the platform’s “technical maturity, industry-leading charger uptime and extensive network management and business operations capabilities”.

Driivz’s offering reportedly includes smart charging and intelligent energy management. As Driivz announced, Kople has decided to book both in future: “The Driivz solution for Kople includes integrated software modules for EV charge point and network operations, EV charging billing, and for future use, smart energy management,” according to the latest press release.

Among other things, the Driivz software enables real-time monitoring of chargers and remote service functions (which, according to the company, can proactively solve up to 80 per cent of problems with chargers remotely). Self-service tools for drivers include a white-label mobile app offering real-time charger location and availability, charger reservations, support for multiple payment options and faster issue reporting.

“Our mission is to meet Norway’s growing need for user-friendly, high-quality EV charging with facilities that deliver our signature easy charging experience,” says Joar Brunes, CEO of Kople. “Driivz technology will help us provide an even higher quality of service to EV drivers and our partners as we continue to scale our business and add new technology solutions as soon as they are ready for us to use.”

Driivz is based in Tel Aviv and counts Shell and Mer among its customers. Thanks to a partnership with Hubject, the software is Plug&Charge-capable. As a result, Mer, Hubject and Driivz announced a large-scale Plug&Charge rollout last year.

Driivz is also no stranger to the Nordics. The company struck a similar deal with St1 Nordic Oy last October. The CPO has invested in HPC stations across Norway at highway and metropolitan locations and is currently building infrastructure in Sweden and Finland.

Driivz belongs to Vontier, a global industrial technology company with over 8,500 staff worldwide.
