Management solutions

There are options to either self manage your rapid charging solution, or you can invite a Charge Point Operator to manage the solution for you. We will help guide you to the right solution for your needs.


To process payments, your charging unit needs to be compatible with a billing system to manage this for you. All charging units that can allow this functionality will have an ‘OCPP’ code which stands for Open Charge Point Protocol.

There are different types of protocol and the three most commonly used are; OCPP1.5, OCPP1.6 and OCPP2.0, all of which can enable pay-to-charge functionality.

A unit has an OCPP will allow you to set up a back office system that will allow you to set tariffs, monitor utilisation and assess the performance of the unit. Without this, you cannot charge customers for the usage.

Not all back office systems offer a customer support service, so you will need to consider how you will manage and monitor the unit to maximise it’s operational time, and ensuring the customer experience is positive.


You can deploy a Charge Point Operator (CPO) who can manage and maintain the charging unit for you. These will help you ensure the customer experience is positive with a 24/7 contact number should the customer be unable to active the charging unit, and these will also monitor the unit to ensure they maximise the units’ operational time.

Maximise “up time”

Rapid chargers are very sturdy and reliable, but they can be a number of issues that arise that can impact the customer experience and in turn, the revenue you generate from operating it.

There are two main things to consider when implementing rapid charging facilities for your public, visitors and customers:

Service and maintenance

Successful rapid chargers will be in rigorous use, so maintaining your revenue generating asset is very important.

Annual service

An annual service will involve looking at the overall power supply, unit performance and cleaning the unit. The higher output rapid chargers will also require new filters every year,

The servicing needs to be done by completed by a trained and qualified engineer and you should incorporate this agreement at the time of purchase.

Maintenance agreement

Whilst rapid chargers are robust, who can always defend them from impact damage, vandalism or issues relating to the grid power being supplied to them.

Entering into a maintenance agreement at the time of purchase (usually combined with a service contract) will ensure that you can get your rapid charger back up and running with minimum downtime and confident that you have set up and agreed repair costs before the event happens.
