I first began working with the people at TestOil in 2010 when I worked a very large company. A few TestOil employees came to our facility to explain how the testing was performed and how to read the reports. They were very knowledgeable, very professional, and very helpful. It was nice to get the information put in common language so our internal trainers could understand and pass on the information. Customer service was extremely helpful setting up nationwide access to our distributor’s databases. They were also helpful when distributors had trouble accessing their own databases. The service is always prompt and above all thorough. I don’t remember ever asking for something twice.
The online database is easy to use and invaluable when trying to help distributors and customers pin point a specific cause of an issue. And, when we needed it, the lab was always willing to rush samples or do further testing.
With that employer we had high expectations of TestOil and they were met. In 2014, I went to work for another company and TestOil was the oil analysis provider. This company was a bit smaller and so I never expected to receive the same level of care and assistance as I did when at the larger company. On the contrary, I have found that the high level of service given was absolutely the same. Customer service quickly provided me with special access to all of our company’s sampling data from all the offices, which has been very helpful to me as Training Manager. I am able to help technicians, sales and service managers to interpret their sample reports as we both look at the data together but remotely. This allows us to quickly address customer fluid issues and at times to predict and prevent major equipment damage.

The first improvement was immediately obvious – the functionality and clarity of their website. Their website includes label printing capabilities for each sample point, as well as tabulated and graphical data trends for all test data and exception reports. This was a welcomed change for us. This functionality was among the best of the labs we evaluated.
The most impressive part of our experience to date has to be the TestOil employees. Whether you are working with the folks that answer the phone, analysts, trainers, lab techs etc. – they are all very helpful. (The web chat even works!) I was even more impressed when I met these people in person at one of their “lab tour” days. The passion and pride that each person displayed at their station was readily apparent. All employees seemed to have a sense of how their role fit in with the overall strategy of the company.

Better than the web site, the people who answer the phone are ready to assist by providing answers to questions or by addressing any issues with sampling, testing, or understanding reports. On occasion I have spoken directly with the analyst(s) about an analysis report and we have discussed what further actions should be taken.
One thing that stands out is that the TestOil people that answer the phone are knowledgeable and are able to provide answers to oil analysis questions. A very annoying problem, that is common throughout various industries, is having an individual answer the phone who will start a process of phone call redirections that ends when you reach the voicemail of the only person able to address your concern. Then you wait for a callback. Although nearly every aspect of my oil analysis program can be managed from the web site, it is good to know that I am able talk to a knowledgeable person if I need to."
