DAFÜR GmbH, CuroCon GmbH and Adaptive Balancing Power GmbH have announced their cooperation. The aim of the companies is to introduce flexible and secure payment and billing solutions for spontaneous ad-hoc charging. By July 2023 at the latest, all new charging points must have readers for common debit or credit cards built in. The demand for corresponding offers is high. “With our technology, we are setting a new standard in terms of security, controllability and user-friendliness for all parties involved, from the charging point manufacturer to the charging service provider to the end customer,” explains Elmar Band, Managing Director of DAFÜR GmbH.
Within the scope of the cooperation, DAFÜR GmbH equips Adaptive Balancing and CuroCon with its own developed and currently most advanced Charge Billing & Payment System (CBPS) on the market and thus closes the gap between the Charge Station Management System (CSMS) and the backend of the Charge Point Operator (CPO). After a pilot phase, the technology will be made available to other charging station manufacturers and operators.
In addition to barrier-free payment in the open loop with debit cards, credit cards and various wallets, the integrated POS system also handles payment functionalities in the closed loop as well as a variety of other value-added services. These include fleet cards, Plug & Charge (ISO 15118), operator-owned charging cards, vouchers and support for customer loyalty systems such as PayBack. Provision of resources for manufacturer and third-party applications, notification via SMS, determination of blocking fees, invoicing and its transfer to the CPO backend are also part of the functional scope of the CBPS.
“E-mobility must arrive on the ground and in everyday life. This includes that the end customer can decide how he wants to pay. We are very pleased to be able to use these advanced payment and billing standards here as the first provider of ultra-fast charging solutions,” says Dr Hendrik Schaede-Bodenschatz, Managing Director of Adaptive Balancing Power GmbH. www.dafuer.com; www.curocon.de; www.adaptive-balancing.de
