Local tech startup Powered by RISE announced the launch of their new product called ONE RISE into Malaysia’s growing electric vehicle market today. The product is considered to be one of Malaysia’s first electric vehicle (EV) charging stations that is fully equipped with its own payment system.
Powered by RISE’s approach to developing charging stations is unique, as it involves developing its own chargers and applications, utilising the IT know-how, which enables the organization to acquire a comprehensive grasp of the technology and tailor its products to satisfy the unique requirements of its customers.
This approach enables the company to have more control over the quality and performance of its chargers, as well as the ability to customise products to meet clients’ specific needs from different industries such as malls, hotels, condominiums, public parking areas, and many others.
ONE RISE offers a comprehensive range of advanced features including an integrated payment system that supports E-wallet payment methods, a user-friendly interface, and safety features like automatic shut-off mechanisms that prevent overcharging and overheating. Furthermore, it incorporates built-in safeguards that protect against electrical faults and other safety issues.
Additionally, ONE RISE is the world’s first charging station to implement flooding and fire detection and prevention systems, providing users with additional peace of mind. It also features an upgraded AI camera that enhances security measures, including license plate detection and motion tracking. This added layer of security ensures the car and user’s safety.
Founder and Director of Powered by RISE, Kray Chong shared, “To accelerate the global transition towards sustainable transportation, it is crucial to provide electric vehicle users with convenient and hassle-free charging experiences. With our ‘Powered by RISE’ solutions, EV users can easily initiate charging sessions by downloading our All-in-One app from Google Play Store or Apple Apps Store. The app is simple and offers real-time monitoring of energy transfer, remaining charging time, and session cost, all accessible from their smartphone, which further enhances user convenience. This innovative solution represents a significant milestone in promoting the widespread adoption of EVs and a greener future.”
As of 2023, Powered by RISE has already installed more than 14 EV charging ports, with an additional 130 units nationwide in the pipeline.
