Formlabs is a 3D printing technology developer and manufacturer based in Massachusetts. They develop high-quality 3D printing software and a suite of materials in-house and across their global offices. Since 2011, Formlabs and its 600+ employees have focused on making 3D printing systems more accessible to more people around the world. Because of this, Formlabs has positively impacted the speed and rate in which companies across healthcare, manufacturing, dental, and other industries are producing high-precision parts and products for their customers.
Because of their growth, teams across the organization found it increasingly difficult to navigate across multiple systems and even harder to find and communicate the product information they needed at any given time of the product development lifecycle. As they continued to grow and expand their product portfolio, Formlabs realized they needed a better, more integrated, easier-to-use system to manage Bill of Materials (BOM), change control, supply chain, and prototype parts in order to move them through production accurately and more efficiently.
We knew this couldn’t scale with us as we are doubling in size every year and adding to our product portfolio.
Propel gives Formlabs the much-needed unified platform for all of their product information, incorporating their third-party data from third-party systems and engineering tools like Solidworks and Altium. Propel is the hub for all of their product data with dashboards, reporting, approvals, workflows, change orders, contextual collaboration, supplier portals and more.
Propel gives flexibility and maturity to product development. The flexibility to do things like when we were a young scrappy startup and the maturity in the later stages during prototypes and production, all while making sure the right set of eyes are on the product. Propel is the best of both worlds.
Because of the flexibility of the platform, Formlabs is able to customize Propel to meet its evolving business needs. Whether they are in the early stages of prototyping, the later stages of production or communicating with their suppliers in China, Propel ensures everyone in the value chain has visibility to all product changes.
