Larger companies often have multiple locations with charging stations. Depending on their preference, they can manage this infrastructure in Everon by:

  • Grouping locations as sites
  • Using the account hierarchy.

Grouping locations as sites

Everon enables accounts to create sites. This groups stations by location, and automatically assigns the same address to all stations associated with a site. It also groups stations in the platform, giving users a clear overview of which stations belong to each location. Using this feature, companies that own multiple locations can activate all of their cards and stations in one account, creating a site per location. With everything active in the same account, employees that have been given cards can use them at all company stations, regardless of the location.

Tips and variations

Companies that choose this setup can use additional platform features to their advantage.

(tick) Monitor company locations through Business Portal
Business Portal's sites management enables companies to monitor both the health of the stations and the charging behavior at their locations. This helps them to identify charging trends and make data-driven decisions about optimizing their sites.

(tick) Enable paid visitor charging
Instead of providing cards to visitors so that they can charge for free, companies can make their stations public and optionally set a tariff. This means visitors with a card within your public and/or roaming network can use the company's station. If the company sets a tariff on their public stations, visitors will pay for their charging sessions. This enables the company to cover their workplace utility expenses. In addition, they can hide their public stations so that other EV drivers don't see them in their apps.

Using the account hierarchy

Companies can apply the account hierarchy to set up their different locations. This is useful if each location is responsible for its own administration, as subsidiary sub-accounts activate cards and stations and pay subscriptions themselves. Employees that have been given cards for a location can still use them at other locations as well, because the accounts form a community in Everon. 

Tips and variations

Employers that choose this setup can use additional platform features to their advantage.

(tick) Group sub-account stations as sites
Each account within the hierarchy can create sites and add their stations to them. This allows the parent account to monitor all sites in Business Portal, helping them to make data-driven decisions about optimizing their full infrastructure.

(tick) Enable paid visitor charging
As explained in basic workplace charging, companies can make their stations public so that visitors with a card within your public and/or roaming network can use their stations. Companies can also choose to activate cards in their own (sub-)account and provide them to visitors, allowing them to charge for free.
