RADSTADT, Austria–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IONITY puts electric mobility in the fast lane

When drivers are asked about the disadvantages of electric vehicles,
they usually mention the limited range and the long charging time of the
batteries. These concerns will soon be a thing of the past. Super-fast
charging points will be available throughout Europe every 120
kilometers, charging empty batteries in just a few minutes. Behind the
project is IONITY, a joint venture between BMW, Daimler, Ford and the
Volkswagen Group together with Audi and Porsche.

has·to·be: fledgling company from Salzburg providing software and

IONITY relies on cooperation with strong partners from the industry to
build up a nationwide charging network. One of them is the Austrian tech
company, has·to·be. The company, based in Radstadt (Salzburg), is now
the market leader in the area of white label operation of smart
solutions in the overall electromobility environment. For this purpose,
the company has developed intelligent software for the management of
electrical charging infrastructures. The product is called be.ENERGISED.
It is used successfully at more than 12,000 charging stations worldwide.
The main trump card of the be.ENERGISED operating system is its
versatility: The software is not tied to a specific device type, but is
compatible with almost all charging stations on the market. This makes
has·to·be’s solutions attractive for large companies all over the world.

has·to·be: working reliably behind the scenes

Several has·to·be solutions are used in IONITY’s charging network: “Our
software ensures the stable operation of the charging stations and
enables simple billing, regardless of which charging card the customer
wants to use. Even contactless direct payment at the charging station is
possible. We also operate the hotline, which customers call if something
doesn’t work,” explains CEO Martin Klässner. “We always act as a
white-label provider. This means that the end customer does not see us,
but only enjoys the quality of the processing,” Klässner continues.

However, the partnership between IONITY and has·to·be does not end with
these services, and will be intensified in the future. For example, the
companies work closely together on calibration law. The common goal is
to create a charging infrastructure for the Super High Chargers that
comply with calibration law. IONITY will thus be able to offer in future
charging processes that have been correctly registered under calibration
law once the standard tests have been completed. For the customers, this
means maximum security for the billing of their refueling operations.



The company, based in Radstadt (Salzburg), Munich and Vienna, is a
leading provider of complete solutions for electric mobility.
has·to·be’s products and services offer everything that companies need
to succeed in electric mobility: from the carefree operation of
e-charging stations to the management of worldwide mobility offers.


IONITY is a joint venture of the automobile manufacturers BMW Group,
Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and the Volkswagen Group, together with
Audi and Porsche. The goal: to establish and operate a network of
efficient fast charging stations for electric vehicles along Europe’s
main traffic routes. The headquarters are in Munich, and IONITY
also has an office near the Norwegian capital of Oslo.
