Leading battery software provider TWAICE has announced a new partnership with Sycada, the Netherlands-based zero emission telematics and fleet management company. TWAICE will add detailed insights on battery health to the solutions offered by Sycada, whose online platform for operational excellence in transport supplies, planners, traffic control, operations, and drivers with critical information with which to operate their fleets and charging, infrastructure.
The global demand for intelligent battery health solutions is rapidly increasing as more and more transport companies switch to electric. The battery is the most expensive component in electric vehicles, comprising up to 50 % of the total vehicle cost. Ensuring and maintaining battery performance is thus of key importance to OEMs and operators. The new German-Dutch partnership enables fleet managers to make data-driven decisions about asset management as well as their operational costs and risks.
The Battery Health module from analytics software provider TWAICE is now integrated in the Sycada platform. This was a logical step for Sycada CEO Kristian Winge, who explained: “We have been observing TWAICE’s success in the fleet sector for some time now. The battery health information provided by their software is exactly what we want to offer our customers. TWAICE’s proven results in the field gave them the edge over more research-based offerings.”
Dr. Jonas Boehm, Strategic Partnerships Manager at TWAICE, said of the new cooperation: “Like Sycada, TWAICE is working proactively towards a best of breed partner network in the zero-emission space that will accelerate the European Green Deal. We know that battery analytics is the way forward, as only deep data and software can generate the transparency required to see into the battery and optimize its future performance. Sycada’s cutting-edge insights beyond pure battery data – e.g., on driving behavior – can further improve the lifetime of batteries through TWAICE analytics.”
