Elevating Operational Efficiency

A Transition to Advanced CPMS at Charge Hub

Charge Hub, based in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, extends its services across Australia and New Zealand, providing a superior Electric Vehicle (EV) charging experience through high-quality hardware and intuitive software. They aim for a hassle-free charging process supported by 24/7 assistance, ensuring seamless integration for EV drivers and entities looking to implement EV charging infrastructure.



The managing director, Paul Guy, from Charge Hub, has a rich EV charging background and collaborates with reputable firms like General Electric and ABB across Australia and Singapore. Paul was searching for a more advanced Charge Point Management System (CPMS) that supported the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) for public billing. Through our partner, Ampcontrol, Paul discovered EVeto.  

Paul’s dissatisfaction with the previous CPMS was evident, mainly due to its limitation on allowing customers to view their charger information. The client also found the reporting process cumbersome: “Every month, we just use spreadsheets manipulating spreadsheets to try and get the basic information out for your accounting purposes.” Although technically adequate, the previous CPMS needed to fully meet the client’s expectations.  

Charge Hub is growing and aims to boost operational efficiency and customer insight through enhanced data analytics. As their user base increased, a sturdy analytics framework became paramount to maintaining growth and elevating service delivery.
