Tulip, the Frontline Operations Platform, is empowering the world’s leading manufacturers to improve the productivity of their teams, the quality of their output, and the efficiency of their operations. With Tulip’s no-code platform, manufacturers can empower those closest to operations to digitally transform their facilities and gain real-time visibility into the people, machines and processes involved in production--all in a matter of days.

Manufacturers of all sizes, across industries including industrial equipment manufacture and assembly, consumer electronics, contract manufacturing, automotive suppliers, medical devices and more, have implemented Tulip’s intuitive platform to solve some of the most pressing challenges in manufacturing: error-proofing processes with guided workflows, integrating industrial IoT (IIoT) technologies with legacy factory machines, and capturing and analyzing real-time production floor data.

A spinoff out of MIT, the company is headquartered in Somerville, MA, with presence in Singapore, India, Japan, Germany, UK and Eastern Europe.
