E-mobility For Your Pocket

About This Project

innogy eMobility Solutions’ eCharge+ App helps you find the closest available charging station for your electric vehicle. Start quick and easy charging with your preferred payment methods, such as PayPal and credit card. In 2019 innogy eMobility Solutions launched the new eBox: an intelligent, modular and intuitive charging box for businesses and private users. This new charging solution urged the need to have a new extended version of the app. For the front-end and back-end development, innogy eMobility Solutions requested Mediaan for assistance.

eCharge+ app: e-Mobility for your pocket!

The concept

The new app should act as a platform that enables users to find public charging stations, proceed to payment and manage their eBox with it. The app should work on both Android and iOS operating system. Another requirement was the integration of a white label concept.

Customer challenge

The recent launch of innogy eMobility Solutions’ eBox smart and eBox professional, together with the desire to improve the performance of its existing app, urged the need to have a new extended version of the app. For front-end and back-end developments, innogy eMobility Solutions requested Mediaan for assistance. We are also working on converting their existing architecture into a future proof Microservice architecture. This way the whole charging process is fully supported; from charging with IOT possibilities to the whole payment process.
