ABM EV OS Software:
As one of the most advanced and versatile cloud-based operating platforms, ABM EV OS helps customers optimize the user experience through autonomous operations, while enabling the lowest possible operating cost. With the ability to run a single charging station or a network across multiple locations, the software provides intelligent monitoring, remote operation management, comprehensive reporting, and automatic infrastructure diagnostics.
The software also provides payment processing and is customizable with integrations such as customer loyalty programs, entry badges, and parking systems to enable customer experience, revenue, and operational optimizations for both public facing and private charging station operators.
ABM EV OS is being launched in partnership with Noodoe providing its cutting-edge cloud-based software to greatly improve the experiences of the owners, operators, and drivers who rely on ABM’s EV charging infrastructure services. By autonomously providing 24/7 charging service delivery, monitoring, diagnostics, and recovery, ABM EV OS is designed to deliver advanced accessibility, efficiency, and EV charging station uptime. As part of this partnership, ABM is investing in Noodoe through ABM Ventures to support growth and broader collaboration between the two companies.
“We are excited to partner with ABM in this rapidly growing and evolving EV ecosystem to develop innovative solutions and enhance user and operator experience,” said John Wang, Chairman, Noodoe Group. “By pairing our next-generation software with ABM’s scale and industry leading expertise, we will grow our reach to support the global EV evolution already underway.”
“As the nation continues to move toward an electric-first future on the road, the country’s infrastructure requires smart solutions that can readily adapt to changing consumer habits while requiring relatively little hands-on operating,” said Mark Hawkinson, President of Technical Solutions, ABM. “At ABM, we’re uniquely positioned to understand what is needed at all points of the EV ecosystem, from the power grid to the customer experience, which is why we’ve applied that knowledge to creating the best EV software and hardware solutions available.”
These ABM-branded hardware and software products are now available as part of ABM’s full suite of EV ecosystem support solutions, ranging from comprehensive engineering, design, and installation to maintenance services and turn-key microgrid systems and technologies.
As one of the country’s largest installers of EV charging stations, with over 28,000 installed to date, the introduction of these new branded-products builds upon ABM’s recent announcement to construct a first-of-its-kind EV ecosystem hub—the ABM Electrification Center—which will centralize its eMobility, resiliency, and electrical infrastructure operations, services and training through an expanded multiuse facility.
