Press Release: Garage Hive extending EV data offering for show

Community-driven garage management software Garage Hive will be unveiling extended EV data capabilities at the EV Ready event at Brighton Racecourse on 25th January.

EV Ready aims to be the UK’s first independent garage show dedicated entirely to electric vehicle skills, equipment and technology.

For Garage Hive, EV Ready brings an opportunity to meet progressive owners looking to invest in moving their businesses forwards. Their stand will be staffed by Garage Hive director Alex Lindley, alongside other members of the team.

“We’re going to have extended EV-related data available within Garage Hive ahead of the event,” said Alex. “Having EV Ready as a specialist show like this certainly helps businesses supporting the aftermarket to really focus on showcasing and developing their EV solutions, so it definitely provides some useful extra impetus.”

The data customers will soon be able to see within Garage Hive is intended to support technicians by providing service and repair-related information in one place – including charging data, battery information, system voltages and transmission details.

“Integrations like this really just reflect the growth in EV that we’re seeing and the shift that’s underway with these vehicles becoming more part of day-to-day work for many garages.”

The EV Ready event runs for one evening only and features a panel discussion from experts, including Peter Melville of the Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Repair Alliance (HEVRA), author Tom Denton, Ben Stockton of Our Virtual Academy, Paul Dineen of Servicesure and Quentin Le Hetet of GiPA.

The pair of EV Ready garage panelists are both Garage Hive customers and multiple industry award winners. Matt Cleevely of Cleevely Motors is already a renowned independent EV specialist, whilst Kevin Pearce of Cedar Garage will be offering a perspective from a garage considering how best to develop towards meeting escalating EV demand locally.

Garages can still book tickets at the subsidised rate of just £5 per person including parking food, and drink at Doors open at 5pm on Wednesday 25th January.
