Greensboro, NC (February 19, 2020) – Gilbarco Veeder-Root (GVR) announced today it has signed an investment agreement with Driivz, a global leader in smart electric vehicle (EV) charging management solutions. This minority investment further expands GVR’s EV capabilities to enable more comprehensive solutions for forecourts and fleet applications.

Driivz is an intelligent cloud-based software platform supporting EV service providers with operations management, energy optimization, billing and roaming capabilities, as well as driver self-service apps. The Tel Aviv, Israel–based company offers solutions currently used by more than 500,000 drivers and supporting over 130 types of charging stations.

“This strategic partnership with Driivz expands Gilbarco Veeder-Root’s e-Mobility platform with digital solutions for the electric vehicle charging market. As our customers look to the future, we continue to offer innovative solutions and remove hurdles for efficiently managing and developing EV charging infrastructure,” said Gilbarco Veeder-Root President Aaron Saak. “Driivz technology is unlocking the future of energy management and we’re excited to help grow this platform with new opportunities to support our customers and improve the end user experience of EV charging.”

The addition of Driivz to GVR’s existing solutions portfolio enables comprehensive software management for the driver, operator, and energy optimization. GVR will offer the Driivz platform as part of its e-Mobility solutions. “Gilbarco Veeder-Root is a trusted partner with a foundation in commercial and retail fueling, combined with local presence in global markets.  GVR’s investment in Driivz further validates Driivz’s technological leadership in the EV space. I am thrilled about the shared vision we have with GVR to drive EV adoption and energy optimization,” says Doron Frenkel, Driivz founder and CEO. “Major utilities, automakers and gas & oil companies have already chosen Driivz for its future-proof technology and proven scalability, to enable them to accelerate their business expansion into the disruptive and growing EV domain. Our strategic partnership with GVR creates a business synergy that will allow GVR to complement its solution offering with digital services for EV charging and will allow Driivz to support its customers and power the e-Mobility revolution.”

In 2018, GVR expanded their product portfolio to include EV charging solutions with an investment in Tritium, a leading provider of DC Fast Charging (DCFC) technology. Tritium continues to grow its global reach and customer base, expanding its offices in Europe and opening a new manufacturing facility in the United States in 2019.
