More and more petroleum retailers are offering EV charging, and this trend is spreading to Eastern Europe. Israeli charging software specialist Driivz will supply the Budapest-based oil company MOL Group with a charging management platform and a self-service app for drivers.
MOL currently operates charging stations in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, and Romania—by the end of 2020, MOL’s network will stretch from the Czech border to the Adriatic and Black seas.
Driivz provides a cloud-based EV charging and energy management software platform.
“Driivz’s EV charging management platform ensures charger stability and availability with self-healing technology—solving technical issues remotely—which will allow MOL to maximize charging network uptime and significantly reduce TCO,” says Doron Frenkel, founder and CEO at Driivz. “Our white-label solutions allow MOL to deliver a set of advanced, yet easy-to-use solutions to multiple players in the ecosystem such as fleets, gas stations, retail, etc.”
MOL has also launched Plugee, a Driivz-based self-service mobile app and online portal designed to ensure a seamless driver experience. An integrated billing module supports multiple currencies and languages to enable geographic expansion.
“Plugee allows drivers on the MOL network to easily manage their accounts and access a variety of dynamic options, such as finding and reserving available chargers, navigating to the nearest available charger, pay, or report an issue,” said Róbert Tóth-Fekete, Head of MOL Group E-mobility. “We chose Driivz’s futureproof solution because they addressed all our concerns, demonstrating that both their technology and approach met our aspirations to provide an excellent customer experience to EV drivers on the MOL network.”
