Posted by Janet Stroud — June 27, 2023 — ABM, a national provider of facility services, infrastructure solutions and parking management, recently announced the debut of its first-ever branded electric vehicle (EV) products, including ABM EV Charging Stations (Level 2 and Level 3) and ABM EV OS, a cloud-based operating platform for EV chargers.
Through the introduction of EV hardware, and smart software made possible by an investment in a partnership with Noodoe, a global developer and provider of innovative EV charging software, ABM bolsters its ability to provide comprehensive single-source solutions to design, build, operate and maintain custom, scalable EV infrastructure installations.
ABM EV charging stations and hardware
ABM has introduced its own branded chargers, along with related accessories, to help prepare customers to meet the current needs of drivers while future proofing for tomorrow. ABM’s branded chargers include:
- ABM Level 2 AC Charging Stations: A full range of Smart EV Level 2 charging stations from 6.6 to 19.2kW power output. Designed for any commercial, municipal, or residential parking location, including airports, hotels, hospitals, universities, commercial or residential parking lots, stadiums and sports venues, and more.
- Level 3 DC Fast Chargers: A full range of DC fast charging stations ranging from 24 kW DC wallboxes ideal for commercial parking, auto dealerships, workplace facilities and fleets, to 350kW high powered stations suited for larger vehicles including buses and trucks.
ABM EV OS software
As one of the most advanced and versatile cloud-based operating platforms, ABM EV OS helps customers optimize the user experience through autonomous operations, while enabling the lowest possible operating cost. With the ability to run a single charging station or a network across multiple locations, the software provides intelligent monitoring, remote operation management, comprehensive reporting and automatic infrastructure diagnostics.
The software also provides payment processing and is customizable with integrations such as customer loyalty programs, entry badges, and parking systems to enable customer experience, revenue, and operational optimizations for both public-facing and private charging station operators.
ABM EV OS is being launched in partnership with Noodoe, providing its cutting-edge cloud-based software to greatly improve the experiences of the owners, operators, and drivers who rely on ABM’s EV charging infrastructure services. By autonomously providing 24/7 charging service delivery, monitoring, diagnostics, and recovery, ABM EV OS is designed to deliver advanced accessibility, efficiency, and EV charging station uptime. As part of this partnership, ABM is investing in Noodoe through ABM Ventures to support growth and broader collaboration between the two companies.
Mark Hawkinson, president of Technical Solutions, ABM, pointed out:
As the nation continues to move toward an electric-first future on the road, the country’s infrastructure requires smart solutions that can readily adapt to changing consumer habits while requiring relatively little hands-on operating. At ABM, we’re uniquely positioned to understand what is needed at all points of the EV ecosystem, from the power grid to the customer experience, which is why we’ve applied that knowledge to creating the best EV software and hardware solutions available.
These ABM-branded hardware and software products are now available as part of ABM’s full suite of EV ecosystem support solutions, ranging from comprehensive engineering, design, and installation to maintenance services and turn-key microgrid systems and technologies.
As one of the country’s largest installers of EV charging stations, with over 28,000 installed to date, the introduction of these new branded-products builds upon ABM’s recent announcement to construct a first-of-its-kind EV ecosystem hub — the ABM Electrification Center — which will centralize its eMobility, resiliency, and electrical infrastructure operations, services and training through an expanded multiuse facility.
