GREENSBORO, N.C. — Gilbarco Veeder-Root (GVR) is expanding its e-Mobility platform with the North American launch of EVerse—a new software offering that provides convenience stores, fleets and other businesses the ability to host and manage electric vehicle (EV) charging networks.
EVerse is designed for customers offering EV charging services to consumers and fleets. The platform comes in several variations, from single-site c-store owners to nationally recognized retail brands, to fleets large and small. EVerse further enables Gilbarco Veeder-Root customers to create their own branded EV charging network, tailored to their specific business and market needs, with customization and additional integration options available.
It provides the tools needed to run an EV charging network, including the ability to set pricing structures with multiple payment methods and engage with electric vehicle owners. The software tools track the health of chargers and the overall charging network and is backed by Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s service and support capabilities. EVerse supports any Open Charge Point Protocol-compliant hardware, meaning it is flexible to address customers’ EV charging decisions.
EVerse applies self-healing algorithms to address and correct up to 80% of charger issues without human intervention, as well as energy management features.
It also grows with demand and is compatible with Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s full portfolio of hardware products and service offerings.
“As Gilbarco Veeder-Root continues to expand its e-Mobility platform, we are excited to announce this industry-first technology that provides an end-to-end solution enabling our customers to truly own and manage their charging infrastructure and provide a seamless solution to consumers,” said Aaron Saak, president of Gilbarco Veeder-Root.
EVerse is the latest development in an expanding e-Mobility portfolio of solutions that include Level 2 and DC chargers, network management software, service and support.
