Olyslager brings LIS Program to the cloud

Apeldoorn, January 23, 2020  – Olyslager, global leader in oil-technology data has transferred its modernized Lubricant Information System to the Cloud in cooperation with Thinkwise. By making use of Thinkwise’s low-code platform and Olyslager’s 70 years of knowledge and expertise in the oil industry, the customers of Olyslager obtain the maximum benefit from the modernized services provided by Olyslager. 

Olyslager is the market leader within the oil industry with regard to collecting, and extracting information from, lubrication data. From quality, quantities or any other parameters, all this information can be found in the Olyslager database.

Using this information enables customers of Olyslager, partners and end-users to make recommendations for the correct use of lubricants. This applies to both the automotive and the industrial equipment sectors. Flexible IT solutions play a key role in achieving this. Together with Thinkwise, Olyslager has now developed a new low-code base to accelerate the development of its services to continue to satisfy the requirements and challenges facing their customers, both now and in the future.

Tom Rensink, COO at Olyslager: “Thinkwise is an important partner for us with regard to the modernization and further development of our services. The Thinkwise platform enables us to increase the speed with which we bring new services to the market. Standardization in the background and flexibility up front. This will ensure that in 2020 our customers can always enjoy the latest Cloud services”

With help from Thinkwise, Olyslager has successfully modernized and implemented its own data collection application. This is an application that Olyslager uses internally to collect vehicle details and publish data for use in customer specific portals and online publications.

Synchronization across five continents

In this new situation the LIS System operates completely within the Microsoft Azure cloud. This ensures that the system environment benefits from the latest Microsoft security technology. Olyslager’s customers can now always work with the latest LIS version and features and the application is accessible worldwide on any device with an Internet connection. This allows Olyslager to provide its information worldwide without any delay.

“We are extremely proud to assist an internationally operating company such as Olyslager to modernize its services with our low-code platform,” says Victor Klaren, co-founder and CVO at Thinkwise. “This strategic choice is proof of Olyslager’s future-oriented vision and demonstrates the power and versatility of our platform.”

During the next phase, in cooperation with Thinkwise, the various applications that customers currently use to register oil products and generate recommendations for suitable lubricants will be gradually modernized.
