About The Client
Our client Exicom Power Systems is a leader in manufacturing EV chargers. Exicom develops industry-leading EV charging solutions for homes, workplaces, and public spaces. They deployed more than thousands of AC and DC chargers across India and Southeast Asia, and always take pride in their chargers’ ability to work in the harshest environmental and electrical conditions.
They aim to fully integrate innovative EV charging solutions into modern daily life. Exicom plans to enter into the eMSP space to completely change the EV riding experience even for the longest distance. Exicom already had a system which was in place for the home users but to revolutionize the development of a robust electric mobility ecosystem, making it easier for individuals and businesses to transition to electric transportation. EMSPs play a crucial role in promoting the widespread adoption of electric vehicles by offering convenient and accessible charging solutions to EV users.
About The Project
The Client wanted to merge the ongoing application of home charging with public charging. Which rise the need for a new CMS (Charger management system). This project needs a lot of research work as this is very new to the Indian market. Creating a new functional flow that acts as a foundation of the CMS and helps in reducing personal visits to reduce efforts and cost. Integration between the CMS and the CPO via OCPI1.1.2 is crucial and plays a pivotal role in running seamless operations.
Innovation at Bellurbis:
Bellurbis proposed a system solution that would help clients in handling charging stations at various geographic locations in a much easy way and reduce their effort in coordinating between the various teams. We ensure that the new version of the application which also features public charging add value to the existing end user and enhances their experience of EV charging. Although this required the revamp of their existing application and web platform as well for seamless functioning.
The Bellurbis team used an eMSP protocol called OCPI 2.1.1 (Open Charge Point Interface 2.1.1) to integrate the client’s charge management system with the charging stations with the help of which the end user can use the eMSP services for public charging where he can pre-schedule the charging booking, navigate to the charging station, Make payment for charging and get the real-time unit consumption on the application apart from that there are various other VAS features and the support which always help the end user where ever they stuck.
This project includes the mentioned portals:
- Internal Portal
- CPO Portal
- Customer Support
- Public Charging Application
- Home Charging Application
This portal can be accessed by the internal user to create CPO, manage CPO, and various configurations such as tariffs and documents, Payments, CDR, etc. It gives full control to the internal user to manage the system accordingly. Reporting dashboard for the strategic decision making
This is accessed by the charging station person to manage the charging station, charge bookings with the application user, and view payments and the OCPI 1.1.2 is the lifeline with which both the Internal and CPO portal communicated in real-time. Reporting dashboard gives the business insights.
This portal helps the customer support team to manage the support operations optimally and the end user of the application can come to the support section of the application in case of any functional and technical assistance required.

Users can avail of various promotional offers and reward points. Track and manage their charging booking and customer support. This application gives real-time station updates, personalized user profiles, and integration with navigation systems or mobile apps for enhanced convenience through OCPI1.1.2.
Home Charging Application:
Charge your EV through Bluetooth and Wi-Fi service, plug in and start charging immediately, schedule charging at a later time, set detailed schedules to take advantage of lower electricity rates, manage your charging progress, share access to your charger with friends and family, track your charging consumption statistics, review, renew extend your warranty, service package and customer support from the application.
