Our Story

Flowlens is proud to be from Belfast – the shipbuilding, ropemaking, and now tech hub capital city of Northern Ireland. A city whose skyline is still dominated by our manufacturing past in the shape of the Harland & Wolf cranes.

Our purpose and mission is to help SME manufacturers be the best they can be. Along with our international partners, we’re on a mission to unlock the power of digital technology (Industry 4.0) for small manufacturing businesses, helping them improve, grow and compete with the biggest names in their industry.

We do that by working closely with every potential client to understand their unique stage of development, the problems they face, the issues they perhaps don’t see for themselves and the solutions open to them through Flowlens.

Our Solution (process map)

With detailed understanding, we guide each business through our proven implementation process to ensure they get the absolute most out of our software and understand where Flowlens can be applied across their business for total transformation.

We remain an extension of your team, always available to help you get the most out of the system and to continually improve your business.

What we believe

Too often, SAAS (software as a subscription) tech companies aggressively push businesses to sign-up for a product without any understanding of that individual business’s needs.

That might help the tech firm scale quickly but it’s not a long-term strategy.

At Flowlens, we take the time to understand your business before we say if our MRP software is the right product for you. We’re happy to say we’re NOT the right product for every business because…

No two manufacturers are the same

Every company is different and this is particularly true when it comes to manufacturing. Even within narrow industry niches, different companies are at different stages of their development, have different reasons for wanting to improve and have different approaches to their business.

We’ll take the time to get to know you before we agree that we can help or that you’re ready to take that first step with Flowlens.

We’re always learning

Like any business, we’re constantly evolving and while we’re happy to say that we feel we have struck the right balance between affordability, functionality and ease of use, this can change over time.

However, we’re continually developing Flowlens, making it faster, safer and easier to use and our loyal customers are part of that. Our product roadmap comes from consultation and collaboration with our customers.

We’re in the business of business improvement and that applies to ourselves too.
