Monta and Crystal EV Charging Partner to Power up EV Charge Points

Monta and Crystal EV Charging partner up to power up EV charge points
Electric vehicle (EV) charging app, Monta, and charge point installers Crystal EV Charging have today announced a new partnership aimed at solving the UK's electric vehicle infrastructure shortage. Using the Monta software, Crystal EV will be able to quickly add, manage, and provide charge points for UK businesses, organisations, and homeowners, as well as provide 24/7 customer support to EV charge point owners and drivers.
Crystal EV will also gain new information on the UK's charging network, providing better performance, maintenance and reliability of charge points while allowing businesses and drivers to see which charge points are currently in use and which ones are available to charge. For further information see the IDTechEx report on Charging Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles and Fleets 2022-2032.
Alok Dubey, UK Country Manager at Monta, said of the news: "Partnering with Crystal EV is an important step in boosting the UK's charge point infrastructure. With more than 35 years of working in the electric industry, there's very few organisations that can rival Crystal EV when it comes to market knowledge and expertise. Together, we're looking forward to supporting the UK's rapid demand for EV infrastructure and keeping vehicles on the move."
Dean Port, CEO at Crystal EV Charging, added: "Software is becoming a key enabler to providing open access to electric vehicle infrastructure. Working with Monta allows us to provide key points of information for potential charge point owners so they can witness first-hand the benefits of providing infrastructure that will power the next generation of transportation while helping the UK meet its sustainability targets."
Part of the Crystal Electronics group, Crystal EV is one of a few UK companies that has completely managed the rapid transition from fossil fuels to Electric Vehicle (EV) charging.

Available on iOS, Android and as a web-based app, Monta connects business owners with charging point installers to help power electric vehicles. EV owners can freely use the app to find charging points near them as well as track energy consumption, usage, and costs.
The app recently launched new smart queue features, allowing EV drivers to view and reserve charge points or join a virtual queueing system to notify them when a spot is available.

Monta is an electric vehicle (EV) charging app that is looking to revolutionise EV charge point infrastructure across Europe. Through its iOS, Android and web-based app, Monta connects drivers, site owners and charge installers to supercharge electric vehicles and create an open, accessible network of charge point infrastructure. The Monta app allows any company, organisation, and public entity with available sites and space to view, manage and set up charge points for employees, guests, and public EV drivers.
