Availability of charging infrastructure support is one of the major concerns for electric car buyers and owners. Even for people living in major cities, it is a hassle to find reliable charging points near their homes, offices, or shopping centers. EVC app aims to help in finding a solution to this problem.
The CEO of EVC came to us with the brilliant idea of giving users the flexibility to choose between various charge point operators. They needed an app with all the useful features and an easy and reliable user interface.
We were impressed by the idea presented by the EVC team. The user will only need to enter the car manufacturer and model details and the app will be able to identify the nearest charging point for that particular car.
We planned to build a fast and easy to use app. However, we did not want to limit its features to basic functionalities. So we added a bunch of other useful stuffs without even slightly compromising its original simplicity.
To give the users the best experience possible, we had to make sure a smooth real-time synchronization exists between devices and charging points. Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers that relay information over packet-switched, solved the problem of updating real-time data about charging point availability.
But we could not just stop after solving these basic challenges. So we aimed to modernize the app with the smart charging facility where the user can just hold the phone near the card reader to start charging the car.
