We build cloud and mobile software solutions for oil and gas. We are the digital oilfield.
Our development and leadership teams have been designing and developing web applications for oil and gas companies for well over a decade.
Launched in 2014, Oplii began as a Canadian technology startup disrupting the O&G software landscape. We set our sights on pulling companies away from their overused spreadsheets and overpriced, archaic software for something more efficient, easy to use and truly accessible — enterprise, industry-specific solutions delivered as Software as a Service (SaaS).
Sadly, now, even as companies face challenges to do with low commodity prices, there are far too many paying exorbitant prices for outdated, substandard technology. The challenge is convincing these companies that they aren’t too busy to become more efficient — that a new brand of O&G software can actually lower their operating costs and, measurably, save time and money.
The Oplii platform is modeled around lean O&G management, can be up and running in a snap, and offers a product offering that can be integrated to suit a company’s exact needs.
Founded in 2014 by Johan Rothzén and Rob Pittman
In September 2014, Johan Rothzén and Rob Pittman cofounded Oplii, a SaaS platform that manages mission-critical data for oil and gas producers.
Oplii was originally developed alongside one of the most highly regarded E&P firms in Canada, Peyto Exploration & Development Corp. They were named 2013 Producer of the Year by Oilweek magazine thanks to their low-cost production strategies. Combining their industry knowledge with our amazing in-house project managers, programmers, information architects and UI designers laid the foundation for success.
Oplii has since been featured in The Globe and Mail and Calgary Herald for its innovative use of mobile technology in the oil and gas industry and was also recognised by Alberta Oil Magazine as a Top 25 Canadian Innovator in the spring of 2016.
In 2003, Rob and Johan incorporated Urban Lighthouse, a Calgary-based IT development company. Over a decade later, the business is still going strong, developing custom web-based and mobile applications that give businesses the power to work more efficiently.
