The Office Lab bv was founded

At The Office Lab, we have a rich history of delivering IT solutions to some of the most prominent organizations such as Orange, Compaq, HP, Eurocontrole, Flemish government, Flemish transport company, Wincor Nixdorf, and Metro. However, we always had a vision of building a better future for businesses of all sizes. That's why we started The Office Lab, with a mission to provide businesses with the right tools to succeed.

We understand that every business is unique, and that's why we offer a range of services that cater to any budget and industry. Our expertise in automation and Microsoft PowerApps has helped us streamline our work, as well as that of our clients. However, we soon realized that managing multiple systems could be a challenge, as they often failed to communicate effectively.

It was in November 2022, when a potential client requested us to build an inventory management system, that we discovered Odoo, a powerful and underrated platform in the ERP world. With Odoo, you can easily manage your website, social media, and backend operations with over eighty modules to choose from, making it a perfect fit for businesses of all types, be it a restaurant, shop, or any other type of business.

We are proud to partner up with Odoo, as it enables us to provide businesses with the tools they need to run their operations and online presence with ease. Our goal for 2023 is to become a fully qualified Odoo partner, and our ambition is to become one of the gold partners in Europe and beyond. With The Office Lab, businesses can rest assured that they have the right tools to succeed.
