OMV is one of the largest Oil & Gas companies that have filling stations across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. With millions of patrons in many countries all over Europe, it is a well-known brand that has been around for more than 60 years.
Centralize and make publicly available the fuel receipts data that was distributed over various databases and was accessible only to OMV staff who would then manually search for the receipt and send it to the customer.
Allowing loyal customers to find filling stations when they are on the go with a smart gas station finder app which would also pick out the best route for the customer.
A smart and reliable way to have all your fuel receipt located in one app which would reduce the manual efforts and calls received by the company and also fully automate Avanti Stations.
An app that works as your fuel buddy helping you find fill stations across 3 continents and assist you with finding the best route on your long road trips
OMV has more than 1450 filling stations that serve millions of customers. The receipts generated for each refuel were stored in separate databases based on the location of the fuelling stations. The need of the hour was to centralize this data and make the receipts available to the customer.
Enhancing customer experience by providing a filling station app that would allow the customer to find OMV filling stations as per their location.

With our homework on the app and database done, Hidden Brains was able

the data migration to a single there would be no data loss. This
promise was made based on Hidden Brains’ expertise in data migration and
having a 19-year long history of providing software solutions.
Based on the requirements elicited during the reverse engineering
phase, Hidden Brains concluded that the best way to
execute this project would be to go with sprint planning.
The sprints were planned and the best suitable resources were
applied to the project to ensure optimum results
One of the key features of the app was to be the
filling station finder. This required the app to be
able to pin the stations on the map with complete
accuracy. To achieve the same the Hidden Brains
team prepared the proof of concept for the app.
With the backing of strong reverse-engineering, the
development stage began. Each feature was

The next big challenge was to merge data. This was achieved by
analyzing the invoices XML files and their patterns. Data migration
of all the old filling station receipts from various servers and filling
stations to one single server was achieved successfully WITHOUT

Once the application was ready, Hidden Brains rigorously testing
the app to ensure all the data, features and perks
functioned as required. After a detailed test of the app,
Hidden Brains and OMV were ready for the launch.
