has·to·be, based in Radstadt (Salzburg), specializes in smart solutions for e-charging stations. For this purpose, the company has developed intelligent software for the management of electrical charging infrastructures. The product is called be.ENERGISED and is used successfully at more than 14,000 charging stations worldwide. The special feature of be.ENERGISED is its versatility: The software provides a comprehensive range of functions that can cover all the relevant requirements of a charging point operator (CPO), from billing to charging station management. In addition, has·to·be supplements the product range with 24-hour operation management by its Operations Center in Salzburg. This makes the has·to·be product range particularly attractive for IONITY.

Trouble-free operation and easy payment

Several has·to·be solutions are being used in the rapidly growing IONITY network: The be.ENERGISED software ensures stable operation of the charging stations and enables simple billing, regardless of which charging card the customer wants to charge with. Even direct payment at the charging station without a contract is possible. In addition, has·to·be operates a 24/7 hotline and the technical 24/7 operations center so that errors can be rectified quickly and, in many cases, automatically.

Martin Klässner: “Moving Europe forward together”

In March 2019, IONITY and has·to·be signed a long-term cooperation agreement. “We have accompanied IONITY from the very beginning and are very proud to be part of this trend-setting project for the future of mobility in Europe,” says Martin Klässner, CEO of has·to·be. He sees the expansion of the charging infrastructure as being on the right track and stresses its importance for the progress of the entire industry: “Motor vehicles often dominate the public debate, and it is just as important for the long-term success of e-mobility that the expansion of the charging infrastructure should proceed in a targeted manner”, states Klässner confidently. “IONITY has presented a vision and concrete implementation steps that will help Europe advance in this area,” continues Klässner.

Full speed ahead for Europe’s fast charging network

The IONITY fast charging network on Europe’s motorways is presently growing according to plan: currently, 76 locations with an average of six charging points are in operation in nine European countries.
