About The Customer
Wallbox is a company that creates advanced electric vehicle charging and energy management systems. Launched in 2015, the company aims to change the way the world uses energy. In just seven years, Wallbox has established commercial offices globally, grown to approximately 1,250 employees, and set up four manufacturing centers on three continents. Initially, Wallbox focused on solving electric vehicle charging needs for domestic users. However, it has since diversified its market to include businesses and the public. The company is transitioning from being solely product-centered to selling a service, offering a charger monitoring and operation service with pre-established service-level agreements.
The Challenge
Wallbox, an electric vehicle charging and energy management company, faced a significant challenge in managing its data. Since its inception in 2015, the company experienced rapid growth, expanding from 50 to over 1,000 employees in a short span of time. This growth led to an increase in the number of tools and applications used across different departments, resulting in data silos that hindered insight and quality control. The company's data was scattered across various platforms, making it difficult to trace and resolve quality issues. Additionally, the business logic embedded in the dashboard was complex to evolve. Another challenge was the regular updating of tools required for custom integrations, which proved to be a costly and time-consuming process. Wallbox needed a solution to break these silos and consolidate all its data in a single, easily accessible location.
The Solution
To address its data management challenges, Wallbox turned to Fivetran, a provider known for its reliability and extensive range of connectors. The company designed a modern data stack centered around a cloud data warehouse, choosing Snowflake as its corporate data warehouse and dbt as its modeling tool. This setup allowed Wallbox to perform extract, load, transform (ELT) operations, transforming data within the data warehouse itself. The implementation of this solution enabled Wallbox to have its first data platform up and running in a few months, facilitating growth in a more scalable way. The integration with Fivetran allowed Wallbox to consolidate between 30 and 40 data sources, significantly increasing the volume and value of the data in its warehouse.
Operational Impact
  • The integration of Fivetran into Wallbox's operations has led to several operational benefits. The company now has a unified view of its data, enabling sharper and accelerated insights. This has opened up new business models and commercial opportunities, with Wallbox moving towards partnerships and commercial agreements with energy companies, solar panel companies, and utility companies. The time to insight has been significantly reduced, enhancing operational efficiency across the team. For instance, the finance team, which previously relied on a complex ERP system with sluggish data analysis capacity, now utilizes the warehouse and its BI tool, leading to significant time savings and a reduction in human error. Similarly, the marketing team, which previously dealt with numerous data silos, now has a unified view of data, enabling them to see how each campaign has performed independently.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Integration with Fivetran led to the consolidation of 30 to 40 data sources, significantly increasing the volume and value of data in the warehouse.
  • Wallbox generates between 2.5 and three billion rows of data a day from its chargers.
  • The implementation of Fivetran resulted in massive time savings and a reduction in human error in the finance department.
