Case Study: Integrating Smart Charging in Under 15 Minutes

Longship offers a scalable, cloud-based SaaS product that lets charge point operators quickly get their chargers online and start operating and monetizing them. The founders have extensive experience in the market and have created a competitive platform connected to Ampcontrol’s smart charging software.

API-based software

Since February 2022, customers have been using Longship’s OCPP software and Ampcontrol’s smart charging software to bring EV chargers online and optimize their energy usage. The partnership provides access to the OCPP 1.6J backend of all chargers, allowing better operational visibility of all charging operations.

15 min
Integration Time

Longship customers can connect to Ampcontrol’s Charging Optimization System in under 15 minutes.

80+
Chargers Connected

Ampcontrol is directly connected through Longship’s Integration to over 80 chargers worldwide.

100%
Remote Setting

Ampcontrol and Longship remotely connect to the charger’s backend using their API-based software. This has allowed Ampcontrol to manage chargers around the world.

Challenges

Charger Behaviour Visibility

Complete visibility over the charger’s activity is essential to functional and reliable charging operations.

Remote Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting hardware issues quickly and seamlessly is vital to running operations as smoothly as possible.

EV Chargers Inoperability

Managing multiple charge point brands in one site can be difficult without setting each charge point correctly.

Solution

Easy Setup

Longship’s and Ampcontrol’s engineers have been working together to connect Longship’s OCPP backend with Ampcontrol’s smart charging software reliably and easily. Today, users can synchronize both systems within less than 15 minutes. All that is needed is to set up the new Longship OCPP backend URL for the EV charger. Ampcontrol’s system will automatically connect to the OCPP backend, and the charger will be immediately ready to receive intelligent charging commands. The only requirement is that the EV chargers use OCPP 1.6J in their firmware.
