Partnership has accelerated project closeout and achieved a faster time to revenue
PALO ALTO, Calif., Mar. 26, 2021 – Sitetracker, the project and asset management standard for innovative infrastructure owners and operators such as Duke Energy, Dominion Energy, and New Columbia Solar, is proud to announce that electric vehicle station operator Volta Charging has used Sitetracker to double the size of its EV charging station network in a little over two years. Volta will continue to use the Sitetracker Platform to further expand its charging network, which is already the most-utilized free electric vehicle charging stations in the United States.
With 80% of its network located in front of essential businesses, Volta’s charging stations feature large, eye-catching digital displays that function as a sophisticated media network, providing brands a way to reach millions of shoppers. These sponsor-supported charging stations provide energy to customers who can plug in their vehicles where and when they shop. Property owners and retailers who choose to have Volta charging stations installed report an increase in spend, dwell time and engagement on site. Currently located in 23 states and over 200 municipalities, Volta’s ecosystem of partners and drivers have surpassed 90 million free electric miles across the network of charging stations.
To manage this rapid growth, Volta has utilized Sitetracker’s platform to increase network installation productivity and accelerate time to project closeout. Out-of-the-box features like Trackers and Project Templates have allowed Volta to standardize and streamline their processes, optimize for scale and gain visibility.
“As our business evolved and became more sophisticated, we saw a need to transition from proprietary workflow management solutions to a best-in-class platform that could optimize the management of large project portfolios,” said Jon Michaels, Executive Vice President Network Development, Volta Charging. “Through Sitetracker, we’ve been able to accelerate our nationwide rollout to new locations and partners, all the while maintaining efficient and high-quality operations at our current stations.”
“This streamlined project management has become all the more crucial as EV adoption becomes increasingly widespread across the country,” said Giuseppe Incitti, CEO of Sitetracker. “Volta Charging is serving the hyper-growth EV charging segment. We are proud to partner with Volta and empower their project managers to accelerate project closeout – a key trigger to faster time to revenue.”
