Through a technical integration, the cross-fleet charging solution from BP Pulse and EV Connect will offer efficiency and control to minimize energy costs and manage fleet charging operations.

LAS VEGAS—With 5.7 million electric vehicles anticipated to be used in fleet applications by 2025, EV Connect, an EV charging business platform, and BP Pulse, a leader in charging infrastructure for fleets and public charging, recently collaborated to bring key capabilities of Omega, BP Pulse's EV charge management software to the EV Connect platform. Tailored to the charging requirements and duty cycles of EV fleets, Omega delivers a managed charging solution that integrates charging management technology from EV Connect and BP Pulse into a new fleet offering. 

With BP Pulse and EV Connect’s Omega integration, fleet operators can focus on their core business while Omega orchestrates charging schedules, prioritizes charging based on fleet needs, and enables real-time insights for informed decision-making, whether charging at depots, on the go, or at driver homes. The collaboration between BP Pulse and EV Connect gives fleet operators greater control over charging infrastructure while reducing costs associated with energy consumption and providing historical data for further optimization.

"At BP Pulse, we remain steadfast in our mission to simplify electrification for diverse fleets, and collaborating with EV Connect on this endeavor marks an exciting milestone, expanding our scope to deliver turnkey solutions for fleet operators industry-wide," said Sujay Sharma, CEO of BP Pulse Americas. “Our shared goal is to provide fleet customers with a comprehensive solution that addresses all aspects of their charging needs—no matter the location. This collaboration allows us to combine our unique offerings into one cohesive platform."

Omega orchestrates EV charging to optimize cost-effective charging for fleets, while the EV Connect platform focuses on managing financial transactions, particularly in commercial fleet settings. This includes fleet operations in which drivers bring vehicles home, requiring private chargers with reimbursement options. By combining the capabilities of Omega and the EV Connect platform, fleet operators, including those in government, municipal, logistics, services, and sales sectors, can expect improved efficiency and optimization of their charging stations while empowering fleet managers with control over when and how their vehicles are charged, optimizing for factors like energy cost, power constraints, vehicle readiness, and operational efficiency. 

"This collaboration between EV Connect and BP Pulse brings unparalleled expertise in the electric vehicle charging industry, opening doors to elevate our fleet management capabilities and deliver cutting-edge solutions that set new standards for both of our customers," said Jon Leicester, VP and head of commercial at EV Connect. "By integrating our platforms, we can offer a comprehensive management solution that caters to fleet operators looking to optimize electric fleet efficiency like never before."
