GO TO-U has reached a long-term Cooperation Agreement with ABB E-mobility for joint sales for the destination charging segment. GO TO-U software technology for management and monetization of EV charging infrastructure will be bundled with ABB solutions for charging, asset management and energy management for retail and hospitality, home, and workplace sub-segments.
As the adoption of EV’s continues to grow, destination charging segment is expanding rapidly. While the majority of EV drivers prefer to charge at home, workplace charging is gaining momentum as companies switch to EV fleets. At the same time, the availability of EV chargers at retail and hospitality businesses is no longer a luxury, it is seen by drivers as a must. Since the recent ABB investment in GO TO-U, the companies have worked together to create an out of the box ready solution, increasing traffic to business customers and adding extra value for drivers, therefore increasing loyalty
ABB E-mobility provides a broad range of AC and DC charging solutions that cover the needs of a wide range of customers including asset and energy management. Adding GO TO-U software creates additional benefits for ABB E-mobility customers. In particular, GO TO-U software will enable customers to optimize the utilization of EV charging stations with reservation technology and increase revenue generation with inbuilt marketing tools, on top of ABB solutions.
“The GO TO-U solution is perfectly positioned to support destination charging in hotels, restaurants, shopping malls and office buildings. Its reservation technology helps drivers to locate a friendly place and reserve charging sessions in advance. On top of that, drivers can reserve access to facilities and services while charging. This is a true game-changing approach when it comes to the destination charging experience”, said Frank Muehlon, CEO of ABB E-mobility.
This is an important milestone for GO TO-U. As EV adoption continues to grow exponentially, we are excited to cooperate with ABB to introduce a bundled solution for the destination charging segment. This joint approach will help us to introduce the solution across multiple geographies, relying on the dense ABB network of existing and new customers.
“GO TO-U is paying exceptional attention to drivers’ EV charging experience and we have been preparing for international sales, introducing the multi-currency wallet system that can be easily topped up in the mobile application”, said Nazar Shymone-Davyda, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer at GO TO-U.
The Cooperation Agreement will reinforce the existing cooperation between the companies, assisting in international sales. The first projects are under development and will be announced soon.
