ScottishPower has teamed up with electric vehicle (EV) charger installation software company Jumptech to accelerate its home charge proposition.
Jumptech’s software platform integrates processes and communications required for EV chargepoint installation. Its Relay self-survey tool allows ScottishPower’s customers to input information about their property, allowing the supplier to identify if any upgrades are needed to their supply ahead of the installation of a charger.
Additionally, customers can confirm that they have the right information to apply for an OZEV grant, and that the installation will meet the criteria for a standard install price.
Using the platform, all the relevant information can be passed from ScottishPower to its chargepoint install partner and the job scheduled. Once on site, the engineer can use the Jumptech app to capture details of the install, and commission the charger.
ScottishPower will gain real time visibility of the installation using the software, with all updates automatically passed to existing internal systems for management reporting.
“As the adoption of EV’s and our Smart EV Home Charge offering continues to grow, Jumptech enables us to service this demand whilst ensuring we provide the best possible experience by fully integrating the customers journey,” said Andrew Mouat, head of smart mobility at ScottishPower.
The supplier launched its first EV tariff, the SmartPower Green EV tariff, back in 2019. Since then, the adoption of EVs has surged, with more battery EVs sold in March 2022 than entirety of 2019, according to recent data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
The partnership with ScottishPower is the second announced by Jumptech in 2022, following on from a deal in January with charging technology company Hypervolt. The company had a busy 2021, including expanding into Australia thanks to a partnership with charging specialist EVSE.
Beyond this, it integrated its installer management platform with ev.energy’s EV owner smart charging software platform, while Indra, Easee UK, ProjectEV, TSG UK, Fulcrum, BP Pulse, Pod Point, YESSS EV & Energy and Good Energy adopted the software.
“We’re delighted to be working with ScottishPower as they continue to support the adoption of electric vehicles with their Smart EV home charger offering and attractive green EV tariffs,” added Phil Nunn, Jumptech’s founder.
