The user interfacing software integrates with the existing Facility management software of residential societies and reduces the pain of the society in managing the EV charging process.

While the pilots are in progress in multiple cities, one of the first to fully go live is at Gundecha Trillium, a large and forward-looking housing complex in Mumbai. This pilot was supported by Adani Electricity which is the utility supplier in the area.
