Business issue

Royal Vopak wants to further increase the service level for its customers by adding new features in its online customer portal MyVopak. For example, Royal Vopak wants to automate the booking of slots for loading and unloading, without the intervention of a planner. This gives customers more insight into relevant data and enables them to make changes themselves.

Result

An online customer portal where customers can book slots themselves, view current data and make changes.

Technical issue

Build an integration/ connection between the online customer portal MyVopak and the Royal Vopak back-end systems so that customer requests are processed directly and correctly in the underlying systems and current data is displayed in the customer portal.

Bullet points

  • Mulesoft integration layer based on API led
  • System APIs built for internal systems of Royal Vopak
  • Authentication via Okta (security)
  • Easily expandable & maintainable

“Royal Vopak is a beautiful and big company. I am learning a lot about applying the new architecture in an existing system landscape. I built the Mulesoft applications for MyVopak in an agile team. The organization is strict with the use of data models, technical and operational processes. The dynamics between the teams is good; short lines of communication, a clear joint responsibility and we make use of each other’s expertise. I’m proud of my contribution to MyVopak.”
