Cantest Solutions, Oasis Technology, Cantest Technologies - United States and Global Expansion
Cantest Funding Corp. is a vehicle to raise CDN $5 million to fund the Cantest Group of companies, Cantest Solutions Inc. and its direct subsidiaries.
Cantest needs to improve and expand its current facility in Airdrie, Alberta. Oasis Technologies is focused on new technology products, Cantest Technologies is expanding into new markets with proven technologies used to dominate the Canadian market.
Cantest Solutions Inc, founded in 1994 to service new regulations and manage compliance for oil and gas companies, is always searching for new products and services to better service existing customers in oil & gas, property management, government, and transportation. The closing date for the initial funding is November 1, 2017.
There are approximately 121,500 gas stations in the United States that employ nearly 1 million people. This is compared to 11,916 retail gasoline stations operating in Canada. The gas stations are serviced by petroleum services companies who provide building design, building construction, tank installation, gas pumps, point of sale and compliance services. Our target market is the approximately 1,500 petroleum service companies in the U.S. who provide business-to-business services with retail gas stations.
Petroleum service companies have spent time and money to stay up to date with the latest technology for their products and service offerings. They invest in assets such as trucks, tooling, and buildings. By and large, however, the companies themselves aren’t managed with efficient software systems to gain competitive advantages. Human Resources, Operations, Marketing and Sales divisions in most petroleum service companies are managed on spreadsheets at best. They lack IT departments to deploy the latest software technologies to improve business performance and profitability. The petroleum service sector, as a whole, is lagging behind other industries in utilizing technology to improve business process, increase efficiencies and drive profits.
Cantest Technologies Inc. has a series of compelling software applications designed to manage, track and report all of the day-to-day transactions occurring in a petroleum services company. Six different programs will be available to improve the customer’s revenue growth and profitability.
CanERP - ERP
The Cantest Enterprise Resource Planning (CanERP), handles financial management, order management, materials, purchasing and operations. The system handles dozens of service variations and hundreds of unique customer requirements. Cloud based interface, database driven, accessible on all devices and always online.

This features new web interface learning from SQC – the industrial Internet of things IIOT. They are all devices in one console visual interface for all IoT devices, network data, etc.
We manage off-grid solar and wind.
Alternate methods of streamlined communication management. These include wifi, mobility/cellular, satellite, Bluetooth SSH, SSL, secure data transmission, honeypot GPS devices, OBD devices and GPS data.
FABRICATION, DEVELOPMENT and DEPLOYMENT.
Cantest maintains its own full fabrication facilities, complete with modern rapid prototyping capabilities. These facilities enable quick and efficient response to product development as well as existing product and service support. At Cantest, we recognize that our research and development mandate contributes to the sustainability of our business and is a high return investment.
Cantest will operate a Software as a Service (SaaS) model. Software will be accessed in the cloud by any device with an Internet connection. Companies won’t have to invest in expensive hardware to run the software. Also, the software will be secure and available 24/7.
Service companies in the U.S. and globally offering services similar to Cantest Solutions operate with significantly lower labour costs and consequently precludes the Cantest Solutions business model as it exists in Canada to be exported directly without modification.
Cantest Solutions has proven to be a successful competitor in Canada leveraging technologies years ahead of its competitors at home.
Software as a Service (SaaS) companies exist globally and are very competitive. Cantest expects to continue leveraging its successful Service Delivery experience and unique technologies into the U.S. market and globally.
There will be stiff competition at every level of the market. In the petroleum industry, there are industry-specific ERP programs such as Petroleum Insights Accounting/ERP System, MyQuorum and Key Information Technologies. Cantest will have several competitive advantages for each program enabling solid growth in the face of competition.
Discussions and research to date have identified petroleum service companies from A1 Pump in Texas, Tanknology USA, Crompco USA to SGS globally have a need for Advanced Service Delivery technologies but lack the implementation strategies and specific software solutions to achieve their desired goals.
Numerous technology companies exist in the U.S., Asia and Europe but lack the ability to understand or communicate with low cost and tight margin Service Delivery companies
Cantest Technologies will thread the needle of opportunity using the cumulative knowledge and experience of Cantest Solutions to dominate all potential competitors.
Oasis Technology is dedicated to a different tactic using bleeding edge technology in artificial intelligence, deep learning, internet of things (IoT), Enterprise IoT, Industrial IoT and communications. Oasis is competing by leveraging the long standing relationships of Cantest Solutions to date in addition to producing advanced technological solutions. The combination of Advanced Technology with well established industry relationships is an advantage that many companies can only dream of.
GO TO MARKET STRATEGY
Cantest Solutions will continue to focus on the Canadian marketplace working existing core services and reaching to secure all major network accounts, this remains unchanged.
Oasis Technology is targeting new and existing customers from the Canadian marketplace with new products and services in an effort to build off the Cantest strengths to date as well as to create greater product diversity for the future of the Cantest group.
Oasis Technology is committed to a North American target market building off existing industry knowledge and relationships.
Cantest Technologies has already engaged the U.S. marketplace and will increase sales and marketing efforts as existing technologies of Cantest Solutions are productized and commercialized for service companies similar to Cantest Solutions outside of Canada.
Texas privatized its meter calibration services as of September 1, 2017. California is the most populated state in the U.S., has 16,000 gas stations and nearly 200 petroleum service companies.
Cantest Solutions traditional business model has evolved to compete in the Canadian marketplace and will continue to redouble its efforts locally, and will be exploring more opportunities to create more products and services that can compete in a global marketplace which will include technology, training and specialty services where the greatest probability of profitability exists.
USE OF PROCEEDS
The use of proceeds is committed to the development of new products and services; as well as the evolution of technologies and core competencies created from over 20+ years as a successful service company in the Canadian marketplace. Major initiatives will be dedicated to marketing and sales expansion in the United States and SaaS product offerings globally. Extensive product development for both Oasis Technology and Cantest Technologies is underway to increase product and service options for Cantest Solutions and the Canadian market in the future. Marketing and sales efforts will require management, sales and customer service people to be more productive and effective to approach more competititve markets globally. A new building addition is underway in Airdrie to accommodate increased staffing, development and facility requirements.
