OAKLAND, Calif., Feb. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- eIQ Mobility, a trusted platform that drives vehicle fleets into a smart, electric, and cost-effective future, and Qmerit, a nationwide provider of turnkey residential EV charger installations are partnering to provide Fortune 1000 and public fleets with the support they need to allocate a percentage of their fleet to electric vehicles.
With increasing focus on sustainability, many fleet and sustainability managers want to begin phasing in EVs into their fleets. But they must deal with the complexity of working with multiple EV manufacturers, state / federal / utility incentives, charger options, electricity costs, and installers, to decide if and where EVs make sense. Take-home fleets also have extra hurdles due to the complexity of home charging installations and home charging costs. In short, they need turnkey solutions that solve as many EV transition steps as possible.
For fleets, eIQ Mobility provides data-driven decisions to define which vehicles are best suited, which EV makes and models to select, which chargers are needed, what are the cost and sustainability implications, and other strategic EV planning insights. Qmerit streamlines the installation of EV charging stations in the homes of employees, ensuring their company vehicles are fully charged each morning.
Sila Kiliccote, CEO of eIQ Mobility said, "Fleet and sustainability leaders are working to solve highly complex operational, financial and sustainability decisions when considering EVs. eIQ Mobility simplifies this complexity by using existing fleet data to create powerful EV feasibility assessments for our clients. To date, Fortune 1000 fleets have trusted us with 45,000+ vehicles and data from 300 million miles of driving to help them make EV decisions."
"We are excited to provide an EV charging concierge program that makes it easy for fleet managers to get chargers installed at their employees' homes," said Ken Sapp, Qmerit GM of Energy and EV Solutions. "Qmerit has installed thousands of EV chargers in homes across the U.S. and we are pleased to bring our experience and expertise to make this process simple for fleet managers."
eIQ Mobility and Qmerit are partnering to provide a seamless experience for clients, from fleet EV feasibility assessment, to charger implementation, through cost and carbon reporting. This program provides a turnkey process from evaluation, prioritization, implementation and post-installation reporting.
