This month marks 1 year as Partners in Customer Experience: Zap-Map and EVA Global!
Finland, 2nd November 2021. Zap-Map, the UK’s Leading Electric Vehicle Mapping Service and EVA Global, the Leading Customer Solutions Provider exclusive to eMobility are celebrating their first year of partnership for providing 24/7 customer support for Zap-Map’s EV charging payment service Zap-Pay.
Zap-Pay enables EV drivers to use one app to pay for charging across different networks across the UK. The first network available on Zap-Pay was Osprey’s UK wide rapid charging network. Zap-Pay has since signed up 6 more networks – ESB Energy, Char.gy, GeniePoint, Revive, MFG and Mer – comprising over 2,000 charge points across the UK from the fastest ultra-rapid chargers right through to lamppost chargers. More charge point operators (CPOs) are set to join the Zap-Pay network in order to make their networks more accessible to Zap-Map’s EV driver community. EVA Global provides specialised customer support for EV drivers with their Zap-Pay payments which now also includes ESB as another network partner.
“We launched Zap-Pay in response to our EV driver community telling us they wanted a simple solution to the issue of needing multiple payment methods on the different EV charging networks across the UK. The feedback we have received on Zap-Pay has been extremely positive but a product is only as good as the service and support around it. EVA Global is a key partner for us in providing that service and support for both our Zap-Pay users and our CPO partners. As the Zap-Pay network continues to grow, the transition to EVs continues to gather pace and we continue to expand the business, it is essential that we work with partners who are able to scale with us. With its experience, size and global reach, EVA Global is an ideal partner for Zap-Map as we continue to accelerate the move towards zero emission mobility.” - Alex Earl, Commercial Director at Zap-Map.
Donald Hopper, CEO at EVA Global says: “We’re proud to be working together with the team at Zap-Map to deliver an outstanding, complete and satisfying charging experience. Through this partnership, both companies will be able to build a joint understanding of what the EV driver wants and so drive continuous customer-centric innovation. The result: a supercharged learning cycle that will allow us to deliver on our promise to make driving an EV what it should have always been – intrinsically simple.”
Zap-Map was launched in June 2014, with a mission to accelerate the shift to electric vehicles (EV) as the UK’s leading mapping service. The charging point map, available on desktop and iOS/Android apps, helps EV drivers to locate available charge points, plan longer journeys and share updates for the benefit of the EV community. Zap-Map displays over 95% of the UK’s public charge points, of which around 70% show live status data updated every five minutes. In the UK, Zap-Map attracts more than 120,000 users per month.
