When the American Petroleum Institute (API) introduced updates to API Standard 2350, “Overfill Protection for Storage Tanks in Petroleum Facilities,” Blendtech's customer needed help to comply. The updated standard significantly changed the way that tank receipts are handled, requiring formal processes for reconciling receipts and distributions. At the time, the customer used a labor-intensive verification process. To comply, they would either have to hire more personnel or expand infrastructure, costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. 

Blendtech’s task was to find a way of automating this costly process. Read the case study and see how the company created a cost-effective automated reconciliation system that improves both safety and accounting.
