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
  • Plug & Play integration: Integrate IoT-Devices and existing Systems (ERP/ MES)


TULIP is a digital tool for increasing productivity on the shop floor. With TULIP, production staff on the shop floor can easily create APPs themselves without any programming knowledge, such as interactive assembly instructions, digital test reports or process documentation.
