Flam3D member Tech2B expands services with mobile app for the manufacturing industry

The product portfolio of Flam3D member Tech2B has been extended with a mobile app for Apple and Android. With the mobile app, manufacturing companies now have the possibility to easily do business and seize new business opportunities. Through the app Tech2B users can search more efficiently and faster, communicate securely and share data. The Tech2B platform is a new way of connecting supply and demand within the manufacturing industry – and therefore also interesting for various AM companies. Flam3D is also a neutral advisor on the platform.


With the mobile app Tech2B is responding to some important emerging trends. There is a growing preference for B2B interactions to be online and mobile. This development has proven itself over the last decade and will further strengthen with the use of mobile apps. Employees are spending more and more time online, partly due to Covid. People are working remotely more often with an increasing number of connected devices. This causes companies to have to adapt their business strategy accordingly. The manufacturing industry will have to be able to adapt and not just focus on productivity and efficiency. To respond to this, it is necessary to create networks, making innovation and optimisation accessible on any device.

Growth in mobile use

There is currently a strong shift towards a mobile economy. Networks and production processes are increasingly digitally connected. But more importantly, business users increasingly want the same experience as consumers. The rise of the business consumer creates a demand for simpler and better online experiences in the business world. Offering service via apps is still in its infancy within the manufacturing industry, in contrast to B2C platforms.

Orders, chats, searches and updates

With the Tech2B app users can quickly and easily view quote requests, view assignments and chat with colleagues, other users and companies. Furthermore, they can quickly search for the right companies in the companies page. The network of 11,000 manufacturing companies can be consulted through the app. Companies are able to share knowledge and experience via any mobile device. In this way, companies can profile their expertise in the network of the manufacturing industry.

Simplicity and convenience

Always and everywhere the right information at hand is becoming a matter of course. With the mobile app from Flam3D member Tech2B all users have the manufacturing industry in their pocket. This way they can communicate quickly, easily and work more efficiently. Visiting a desktop website on a mobile device is still not always a success. Parts of the website are not easy to read, the navigation leaves much to be desired and the buttons are not easy to operate. In this way, you make every digital contact with your organisation a pleasant seamless experience and strengthen your added value.
