Twaice and ViriCiti join forces and give light to a comprehensive battery analytics for electric bus fleets. Following this new partnership, fleet operators and OEMs can now seamlessly access TWAICE’s comprehensive battery reports as an integrated part of ViriCiti’s fleet management dashboard (which has been chosen by operators such as Qbuzz and RET Rotterdam in the Netherlands and by BVG Berlin in Germany).

As a result the Twaice predictive analytics software will be available as a Battery Health add-on module to approximately 3,000 electric buses connected to ViriCiti’s platform. The software will generate vital insights into e-bus battery performance and capacity in the form of a state-of-the-art battery health report.
