Hampshire-based developers Dootrix have worked with the team at GRIDSERVE to launch a mobile app for EV motorists.

The app helps drivers find charging points, manage payment information, check payment history and view real-time charging information, including estimated time left to charge.

It’s available on both iOS and Android, and integrates with Google Maps, Apple Maps and Waze.

Dootrix has been working with GRIDSERVE, which serves more than 190 locations through its ‘Electric Forecourts’ and super hubs, since 2019.

Rob Borley, CEO of Dootrix, said: “This technology creates the roadmap for continued advancements that can be made quickly to meet future needs and empower EV drivers even more.”

A novel feature of the new app is that it provides a visual representation of the variation in charging speed during a session, known as the charging curve.

Rob added: “This is made possible by a very strong technical connection to the chargers themselves – real-time data from the chargers enables the app to build charging curves of the number of kilowatts that are being delivered to the vehicle throughout the charging session.”

Rebecca Trebble, chief customer experience officer at GRIDSERVE, said: “We are thrilled to be launching the GRIDSERVE app.

“200,000 charging sessions are recorded on the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway every month and the new app will make those charging sessions even easier.

“We have listened to our users and made it easier to receive receipts as we look to constantly improve our service.”
