Purago Delivering real-time information on Prago’s charging stations with “Odekake EV”

Delivering real-time information on Prago charging stations with “Odekake EV” ~Make your EV outings more personal and more fun~
Plago Co., Ltd. (Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Naoki Okawa) has recently provided information on its electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to Navigate Co., Ltd. (Minato-ku, Tokyo,
Representative Director: Kenji Kato). We have started providing it to the EV charging spot search app “Odekake EV” operated by .
This allows Odekake EV to display information such as the location of EV charging stations, the type and number of chargers installed, and real-time availability information, as well as to make charging reservations and transitions to usage.
For EV users, we aim to lead to an EV life that makes going out more enjoyable without the negative consequences of arriving at a charging station and not being able to charge because the vehicle is in use or malfunctioning.

Information about EV charging stations, which are essential for driving an EV, is provided on apps and websites operated by EV charging service providers, as well as on portal services such as navigation and map apps that provide map and point information. I’m here.
Plago has information on EV charging stations across the country on its EV charging app “My Plago,” which allows you to make
reservations, but in order to increase the number of contact points where EV users can charge more easily and conveniently, we have created a company that operates navigation and map apps. We provide an API for EV charging station information that is updated in real time. Now, we are proposing new ways to enjoy EV driving, including information on charging stations nationwide, as well as a function*1 that awards points based on driving distance, posting reviews, check-ins, and campaigns, and allows you to exchange them for electronic money, gift certificates, etc. We have collaborated with “Odekake EV”.
Features of the information distributed through “Odekake EV” 1. You can check the fullness of the charger in real time
If you search by narrowing down the charging type in the “Narrow down” menu using “My Plago” or by tapping the icon on the MAP, the “empty” or “full” charging compartments will be displayed in real time. 2. Smooth transition to charging usage and reservations
