View and manage data in the cloud

Secure, compliant and reliable with built-in redundancies and remote management
Sound Easy Charge™ is an outdoor simple, secure terminal to accept credit/debit cards at electric car charging stations and also supports contactless via tap or NFC, QR code scanning, PIN-on-glass, MSR and EMV chip and pin. It works with existing stations and applications that are currently limiting customers payment options and can be installed at new station locations as the market grows at retailers, malls, restaurants, parking companies and more.
Our solution can handle payments, interact with the client, provide marketing ads, supply loyalty programs, and provide surveillance security. Also, all the data is available  in our cloud which provides access to configure, setup, and review how all electric car charging stations are doing remotely.

Industry Challenges

The Electric Vehicle market is rapidly expanding in the United States economy as a result of the government to reduce emissions and the car manufacturers commitment to go all electric by 2035 and by 2026 for all manufacturers to be in full production mode for EVs. Our solution allows us to work with all vendors and we can customize the solution. Currently, the charging stations have a touch screen with CRT. When we replace the CRT with the Aries device, the customer will be able to do everything from our device. Many charging stations require people to download an app which is time consuming and not customer-friendly through a cumbersome and rigid registration process. Our solutions do not require customers to download cumbersome applications and they can use any credit or debit card, tap to pay or NFC to pay for charging EVs.
