Company: Sollar Software
Established: 2002
Description: Sollar Software Company (before 2006 - RATMIR Labs Ltd.) was founded in 2002. One of the company's main activity is the development of computer management systems for the petrol wholesale and retail trade and industrial control systems. Developed by Sollar Software systems automate the entire technological process of mineral oil sale on a filling station. Also the systems provide the automation of associated activities: goods retail in a shop, cafe service, and engineering service for cars. The systems are integrated with the dispensers widespread in Ukraine and Russia (including produced by "Scheidt & Bachmann GmbH", etc.), card payment systems, card-readers, trade scanners and so on. At 2005 Sollar Software became one of the leaders in the sector of petrol station networks management systems in Ukraine. An example of industrial control systems can be the monitoring system of mazout pipeline transportation terminal. The system is meant for the central monitoring of the technological process parameters of the mazout pipeline transportation.


Sollar Software Company was founded in 2002 by highly experienced managers and technicians. The main goal of the founders was to create a client-oriented, efficient, and flexible IT company.

Industries & Expertise:

  • Oil products wholesale and retail. RATMIR Labs has developed systems to automate petrol retail networks. These systems automate such processes as fuel reception, storage and distribution, selling of accomplishing goods, operations with bank cards, reporting to headquarter, etc. Systems can work with various external devices used in the gas stations.

  • Database applications for business. Warehouse, management accounts systems for small and medium business, as well as systems for various aspects of financial analysis based on management and operational accounts data. Here were applied such up-to-date technologies as OLAP.

  • Process control systems for industry. Process control systems can be developed using one of the SCADA systems (Trace Mode, Citect, In Touch). Moreover, we specialize in automation and modernization of production lines and plants.

  • Smart-cards systems. Smart card solutions, which can be easily adjusted to the customer's individual demands provide control over financial operations.

  • Controllers programming and device drivers development. Application of specialized SoftLogic-packages, manual programming devices and various programming languages for controllers programming.

  • Intelligent buildings. Solutions for intelligent buildings allow integration of both building life-support systems and communication data systems into common managed structure. It's design is based on LonWorks standard and LonTalk protocol. If required the systems can be developed learning on other network standards (LonWorks, BACnet, EIB).

  • Custom-made applications. These systems are developed using modern technologies such as WEB and E-mail, and distributed data processing what makes them highly efficient and reliable.
Examples of systems:
  • Petrol station management system
  • SmartOil system is developed to automate oil retail trading network.
The system automates the following processes:
  • basic technological operations of fuel reception, storage and distribution;
  • selling of accomplishing goods;
  • operations with bank cards;
  • data exchange between headquarters and gas stations.
Different external devices can be connected to the system: oil products parameters measuring device (level gauge); non-cash payment system; bar-code reader, modem, fiscal recorder, etc. The system consists of the following functional modules.
  • Gas station control module automates gas station processes, record-keeping and accounting.
  • Store automation module automates merchandise sales and services registration.
  • Data exchange module enables data exchange between gas station and headquarters.
  • Gas station manager module keeps record books, facilitates communication with headquarters, and monitors operator activity.
  • Bank cards service module ensures plastic cards payments within gas station network.
Mazout Transportation system:

The system is designed for central monitoring of technological parameters during mazout pipeline transportation. Due to high ductility and low fluidity of mazout the mazout pipeline transportation is always accompanied by some problems. Thus, the continous heating is necessary to accomplish this process. The fluctating ductility and density of pump lead to rather unstable and pulsating working regime of pump with maximum permissible loads. Therefore, it is essential to permanently check the basic parameters to avoid the temperature fluctuations and pressure divergence negatively influencing the reliability of mazout supply. The monitoring system provides the following:

  • collects the data via network interfaces and pair lines attached to discrete and analog signal sources;
  • displays the current parameter values of the technological process;
  • keeps the parameter values within acceptable bounds.
The system checks:
  1. temperature;
  2. level;
  3. pressure;
  4. consumption of mazout, steam, and condensate;
  5. condition of cocks on trunk lines;
  6. condition of pumps;
  7. hazard light parameters.
Among technological automation objects are tanks for mazout intake and storage, condensate tanks, steam heaters, trunk lines of mazout swap and steam supply, pumps, etc.
