SOLUTIONS FOR OEMs

WHITE-LABEL
PUBLIC CHARGING

We offer full service white label solutions that enable OEMs to provide a fully integrated e-mobility experience.

Depending on the specific requirements of our OEM customers, elements of our full-service white-label solutions include a website which features product information, tariffs, a charging network map and account management. Furthermore, our solutions comprise an app for iOS and Android including intelligent route planning to find charging stations conveniently at the destination or along a route, as well as the option of activating charging stations directly via the app.

As a reliable and experienced partner we accompany our OEM customers along the entire path of co-developing, implementation and realization of these white-label solutions - from onboarding to strategic consulting.

With our high-quality e-mobility solutions, we improve the user experience of EV drivers by enabling them to find, use and pay for electric charging seamlessly and conveniently worldwide.

FIND

Users of our white-label solutions can easily find charging stations online, using the app or in the head unit of their car - these are provided by DCS or the respective automobile manufacturer.

USE

Charging stations can be conveniently used with an RFID card, app or via Plug and Charge. The respective authentication options depend on the respective charging station in question and are displayed on app and web.

Customers will be invoiced monthly for their transactions based on the aligned tariffs between DCS and the OEM. Tariffs can differ per customer group, market or other criteria. Those tariffs may include time-based fees, energy-based fees or flat rates.
