EVSE manufacturer JuiceBar has formed a new strategic partnership with UFODRIVE, an all-electric car rental company. The two firms aim to bring UFODRIVE’s software technology, including internet-of-things apps, to the US fleet industry, and is also working on pilot programs across Europe using JuiceBar’s hardware to provide charging to UFODRIVE’s rental and mobility software-as-a-service (SaaS) customers.
UFODRIVE’s eMobility platform is designed to allow businesses to manage their EV fleets remotely and efficiently. The SaaS-based solution provides analytics, including driver behavior tracking, personalized carbon savings tracking, carbon offset reporting and integrated payments. The UFODRIVE app also offers a smart reservation platform for fleets.
JuiceBar’s flagship Gen 3 chargers are designed for fleet owners. JuiceBar’s open-protocol network offers real-time connectivity to UFODRIVE’s eMobility platform. The Gen 3 series offers 32-, 40-, 48- and 80-amp power levels, and is designed to provide a reliable and flexible infrastructure for fleets.
“Through UFODRIVE’s sophisticated software and machine learning, fleet operators will have better control over costs, sustainability tracking, and driver behavior with advanced analytics with JuiceBar chargers,” said Paul Vosper, CEO of JuiceBar.
“Fleet operators need to get ahead of the curve and provide all EV solutions,” said Aidan McClean, CEO of UFODRIVE. “Working with JuiceBar, we can offer US-based fleets customized software that will reduce electricity costs and provide real-time dynamic charging.”
