9 highlights from 2019

2019 was a fantastic year for Olbico, both on a business and a personal level. I’d like to take the time to look back on the 9 most special moments of this year. To start with:

1. Joining forces with Altares Dun & Bradstreet and international growth ambitions

After building on Olbico for over ten years, we joined the Altares Dun & Bradstreet Group in April this year. This joining of forces was a very important strategic step. We have worked together successfully for some time, but with this partnership we can focus even more on developing solutions around data management, business information and CRM. Moreover, together we will be able to scale to international markets and realize our growth ambitions.

2. Complete team

Those big ambitions are paired with a growth spurt in our team. In the past year, we have welcomed a number of new colleagues, so now our Olbico team counts more than 20 people from all over the world. It is great to see how much knowledge and expertise our multidisciplinary group of people can bring together. Our colleagues also confirm this: on our new career page, they’ve shared what they think about working at Olbico.

3. Fresh new website and brand

In 2019 we were working behind the scenes to give Olbico a fresh, new and contemporary look. A brand new brand that tells what Olbico stands for, that matches with our high-quality products, offers transparency about our solutions and underlines our international ambitions. In addition to brand identity, our website may have undergone the most changes. The basis of the site is our products, which also come to life under a new name. Master Data Platform is now called Olbico Master Data Platform. B2B Marketing Platform is now called Olbico Leads.

4. Safety measures awarded with new ISO certificate

This year, the icing on the cake of all technical efforts was obtaining a certificate for ISO 27001. And for ISO 9001 we were re-certified. Together these ISO standards are important international quality criteria for guaranteeing and optimizing our information security and business processes. Our CTO Paul says: “We consider these certificates to be crucial measures to be able to offer the best service to our customers, now and in the future.”

5. Support for 4 largest CRMs

In addition to the support for Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics and Oracle Engagement Cloud, we can also add SAP C4C to the list. This means that we can now connect to most CRM’s worldwide with global and local business data.

6. New features for Olbico Master Data Platform

A lot has happened on the development front side too. We have added many new features to the Olbico Master Data Platform. For example, there is the Global Match Service, the Global Credit Check and we have linked a new data source to the platform.

7. Olbico Leads UX

For Olbico Leads we have made considerable changes to the user interface (UX). An elegant look with a completely new user experience makes Olbico Leads work more pleasantly and easily with the same familiar functions. In addition, the fields have been extended with new information, such as with social media profiles and other company information.

8. Family feeling

In addition to the atmosphere that we experience as a “one big family” in our team, because we regularly go out to dinner and enjoy dart and table tennis matches during our breaks, there have also been actual family additions in the personal sense as well. One colleague became a father for the first time, the other for the second time.

9. Festive closing

Perhaps the biggest highlight of the year is the joint Christmas party that we celebrate. I am already looking forward to our Christmas dinner where we raise our glass together to an exciting and eventful year. I wish all our partners a fantastic Christmas and a great 2020!
