Adding EV charging stations to a workplace parking lot has many benefits. With more and more people purchasing electric vehicles, it’s important to ensure that employees have a place to charge their car at work. This will make coming to the office more convenient, removing the extra worry of finding a place to charge on the way to or from work.
However, just a simple run-of-the-mill charging station isn’t enough. It is essential that your charging stations have a payment terminal with an open payment system. This brings added convenience to employees and to visitors at your business, allowing them to pay with a simple tap and go transaction instead of by downloading a proprietary app or being forced to sign up for a membership for that specific charger. This business model creates a win-win situation for both businesses and EV drivers. Here’s why:
1. Convenience for EV Drivers
EV drivers can conveniently charge their cars at their place of work, helping them save time.
2. Accessibility for EV Drivers
EV drivers can pay for EV charging however they please. Whether they’re an employee who needs to charge at work every day or a guest who is just visiting the offices, Nayax’s open payment system can provide a seamless payment experience to everyone.
3. Pricing Flexibility
Pricing flexibility can help increase business revenue. Tier-pricing allows charge point operators to charge different prices for people who charge their car regularly or for one-time visitors. This will further encourage employees to charge at work, as they’ll get a better deal, and will help guarantee a set income for your EV charging business. For example, employees can be issued a prepaid company card that they or the employer can top up. This paves the way for the implementation of loyalty programs and customized discounts. On the other hand, visitors can pay with the payment method of their choice, whether it be debit or credit card or mobile wallet.
4. Data Tracking
With a payment terminal on your EV charging stations, you can keep track of important data and charging trends. This can help you optimize your charging station, optimize pricing, and improve the overall user experience.
5. Energy Management
Advanced management tools that communicate with the payment terminal can also help you manage energy, optimize energy consumption, manage loads online, adjust pricing when electricity is cheaper, and communicate with the grid in order to ensure network stability.
