Based in Peterhead, Scotland, Score Group plc provides valve and gas turbine solutions for global companies in many industries. In 2007, the company earned ₤150 million (U.S.$220 million) in revenue.
Employees used a paper-based process to access and record information about valve inspections. Along with slowing inspection times, the process required manual data entry and impeded data sharing.
Score Group engaged IDBLUE to deploy a radio frequency identification (RFID) solution with Microsoft® BizTalk® RFID Mobile that automates the process used to record inspection data.
