In this episode of the Craft of Code podcast, we spoke to the team from Flowlens to discuss how their all-in-one, modular software solution is helping to reduce inefficiency for small equipment manufacturers. 

Flowlens started as a custom software company serving manufacturers of all sizes in Northern Ireland. Now, it provides cloud customer relationship management (CRM) and material requirement planning software (MRP) to companies throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland.

We spoke to Rich Dale, founder of Flowlens and lead architect, Stuart Gibson about how Flowlens gives manufacturers a single source of truth about their business. We also discuss how working with Linode has enabled Flowlens to provide their customers with a better product, and complete confidence in the safety of their data.

In this episode, we discussed:

  • The early days of Flowlens
  • How Rich & Stuart converted the company from a services-based to a product-based organization
  • The benefits of Flowlens’ MRP software for manufacturers
  • How Flowlens decided to go with Linode.
  • The advantages of being able to use Linode’s London data center
  • How Flowlens has been able to improve day to day performance with Linode
  • What Flowlens values most about their relationship with Linode
