TULIP – "Build your own app"

TULIP empowers front line workers to digitize manufacturing processes:

  • Human centric: Create user-friendly and functional apps that improve the productivity.
  • No code: Enable anyone with the ability to build fully-functional apps with our visual app designer.
  • App template library: Start from scratch or customize an App Template to fit your needs.


TULIP simplifies the digital manufacturing adoption. Manufacturing workforce and engineers can easily create apps via a drag and drop interface and integrate them with existing systems. This no-code approach is designed with the needs of production lines in mind. It enables them to collect and analyze data in real time, without any programming know-how.
