Challenges

A leading provider of electric vehicle charging solutions, faced several challenges that hindered their operations as the demand for clean energy in the transportation sector continued to grow. One of the most significant obstacles they encountered was the installation process for EV charging stations, which involved various stages, from seeking permission and tender approval to installation and project completion. It was crucial to have data visibility during all stages of installation to take proactive measures in case of delays or issues.

The challenges they faced included:

  • Lack of proper data visualization tools and expertise: This resulted in performance issues and made it challenging to manage data during different installation stages.
  • Cumbersome data modeling process: Inability to analyze and visualize data in Excel sheets also made data modeling difficult. They wanted to gauge performance of each station but lacked data visibility.

In today’s fast-paced world, every second counts. Any delays can cost businesses significantly. With the growing demand for electric vehicles, it was imperative for the company to optimize their operations to meet customer expectations and stay ahead of the competition.

Therefore, the urgency to find a solution to their challenges became paramount.
