The landscape of Electric Vehicles (EVs) is rapidly evolving. When Splash approached Thought&Function, they had identified an increasing gap between the growth of the EV market and the public charging network needed to support it. There was a clear aspiration to establish a leading peer-to-peer EV charging platform, but they needed expertise in deciphering how and what to do to get there.
Splash’s vision was to complement their hardware innovations with a digital platform that enabled peer-to-peer sharing. The concept was simple - a charge point owner (CPO) would set up their charge point on a platform, allowing EV owners to search, book, charge their vehicle, and pay for usage. With limited resources but endless possibilities, the main challenge was pinpointing the best use of their efforts at this critical stage.
We initially placed the following team to deliver the MVP:
Part time Product Manager
Part time Tech Lead
Part time Founder / Strategist
1 x Full Time Senior Engineers
What we did
In collaboration with Splash, we delivered more than just an MVP; we presented a solution ready for user engagement and stakeholder demonstrations in only six weeks. Our offering was a testament to proactive planning and strategic execution, positioning Splash for continued success in future development phases.
Every project is a learning experience, and our partnership with Splash reaffirmed the value of collaboration, clear vision, and adaptability. At Thought&Function, such engagements fuel our passion, inspiring us to continue assisting brands in navigating their way to reach their digital vision.
