Announcing eDRV v1.1

Those already signed up for our one-of-a-kind APIs can now benefit from our newest version. The new eDRV v1.1 API is now available and new changes can be found on our docs site. It features a more efficient programming model, real time webhooks, power management and more.

Free OCPP Charging Station Simulator

New to our platform but your physical network is still in the works? Not to worry as you can now play around with our chargestation simulator to see how our products work. From finding a location to charging in real time and processing a payment, our simulator test mode is available for you to use even before your first chargestation is up.

Admin Dashboard and Demo Apps Improvements

Now EV charging operators will have a ready-to-use demo driver app at their fingertips the moment they sign up. This Demo Driver App also allows for you to make integrations with Stripe and Email accounts. The new Admin Dashboard also allows users to quickly test basic sessions APIs and get access token API by way of an API Playground.
