The number of charging station networks will increase rapidly over the next few years as the transition to electric vehicles accelerates. Charge Star is a mature, robust, secure and scalable enterprise level charging station management system that provides charging station network operators with class leading features such as revenue reporting, multiple payment methods, payment to the network operator’s merchandising account, charging session activation via smart phone app or RFID or credit card, usage reporting, status reporting, and remote management of charging stations.
Each network operator is provided with their own instance of Charge Star hosted in a data centre of their choice. There is one database per instance. Customer data is siloed and is not accessible across instances. The network operator or managed services provider can give web portal access to its own customers who may have charging stations hosted on the network. Granular permission levels ranging from view to admin can be granted to customers depending on requirements.
