Get to know the team

The Asset Management team is primarily responsible for building and growing asset management to a true strategic pillar for the organization.

The team currently works on different streams that are interlaced, that the Manager, Asset Management must organize, evolve and develop further:

  • Asset management development, building the requirements for advanced insights and full traceability on our products through our core applications, and for the development of our ability to take corrective actions even before our customers notice a problem. This entails stakeholders and project management which touches upon both static and dynamic data flows, including the promotion of a change of mindset from reactive to proactive, to predictive at a future stage.
  • Network assurance operations, consisting primarily in stations monitoring being experimented and developed further. This includes tooling specification, procedures definition, contribution to the assessment of station monitoring impact on existing support flows.
  • Asset tooling administration, which includes digital reporting forms creation and maintenance, to capture digitally information about interventions in the field, directly recorded in our assets database. It also includes development and maintenance of scripts that support and improve asset operations and managed tenant operations, with the purpose of integrating these tools in our core applications on the longer run, thus the integration of the related requirements in our asset management development efforts mentioned above.
  • Managed tenant operations, consisting in bulk import of stations and cards in managed tenants (Everon EU, Everon NA, PSA 1, PSA 2, FCA, and more recently Mercedes), administration of billing plans, tariffs, system users, review of external accesses to the platform, etc. The scope of this team has been extended to include the import of manufacturing data into our ERP and the rollout of firmware updates on stations operated through managed tenants. This team will also perform services monitoring in the future, moving from execution (that will be more and more automated) to control.
  • Data analysis, to create insights and report trends to both internal and external stakeholders, through stations performance and health indicators (based on technical and operational data) and data quality indicators. This requires coordination with data analysis performed in other teams (AC/DC L3 teams, Quality, IT) and entails fixes and root cause analysis with external teams when needed.
  • Integration testing, ensuring the compliancy of OCPP and OCPI implementations by hardware providers and service providers, with our own implementation in Everon. Smart charging integration testing with Everon is also part of the current scope but cannot be performed without involvement from the Technology department.
