Jellypipe AG, headquartered in Fislisbach, Switzerland, has announced a COVID 19 Recovery Package for new companies that sign up to its ecosystem platform, which it launched in 2019.
The platform brings together manufacturers requiring additively manufactured parts and components with companies that own and curate online shops, which give users access to best-in-class advice and consultation, as well as a European-wide network of Additive Manufacturing service providers, explains the company.
Jellypipe states that the COVID 19 Recovery Package reduces the cost of joining the ecosystem and some additional benefits. Solutions providers on the Jellypipe ecosystem are the shop owners, the companies that users approach to secure business. Typically shop owners and service providers enter a six or twelve-month renewable contract with Jellypipe, paying a nominal monthly fee.
As part of the COVID 19 Recovery Package, companies will be able to receive eight months for the price of six or fourteen months for the price of twelve, effectively allowing the first two months of their engagement for free. If companies decide not to continue after the initial two free months, the only cost is said to be for the two months.
In addition, Jellypipe explains that it will offer a free marketing campaign on behalf of the new shop owner or service provider, informing international industry to their arrival on the Jellypipe platform which will be distributed across all relevant B2B media channels internationally.
Furthermore, for solution providers, the company will add the Additive Manufacturing service option and details to their existing website so that business can be generated immediately.
“For existing 3D printing service providers Jellypipe is an obvious option, as at very low monthly costs it secures them the opportunity to cast their net wider and to quote on business that would otherwise not be available to them,” stated Peter Nyffenegger, CEO & CMO of Jellypipe. “For industry experts working in the area of manufacturing, it allows them to leverage their expertise and add a 3D printing service without having to invest in the capital equipment.”
He added, “Online, users approach “shop” owners, who put the work out for tender to the Jellypipe service providers, and then the cheapest or fastest delivery option can be selected and the parts are delivered directly to the customer.”
Georges Benz, president & co-founder of Jellypipe commented, “Jellypipe’s mission is to grow the 3D printing market-place and make using 3D printing as a technology for production as simple as possible. In common with other areas of industry, we see how the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted business, and we are in a position to aggressively support companies as they aim to regain lost revenue and build robust income streams from new areas of industry they may hitherto have not felt available to them.”
“And so we launch our COVID 19 Recovery Package,” Benz continued, “which supports the international 3D printing community in the best way possible to gain as much business as possible, and build a dominant presence in the space.”
Scott Colman, Jellypipe UK & Ireland Sales Manager reported, “We know how successful Jellypipe is and how much revenue both solutions and service providers can generate using the platform. Many of our existing users have insulated themselves from the worst of the COVID-19 turndown by keeping their profiles high on the platform, and we are delighted to be able to offer this package to new entrants to help them tap into the enormous revenue potential that exists.”
“Simplicity is the absolute key behind Jellypipe’s success,” he continued. “The number of 3D printing service suppliers in our ecosystem means that customers have access to thirteen different Additive Manufacturing processes, and fifty different printable plastic or metal materials. We ensure that customers communicate with 3D printing solutions providers via their virtual shops instead of direct with service providers in order to receive impartial professional advice on specific applications, limits, and optimisation of 3D printing for their specific requirements. When the fastest of most-cost-effective quote is accepted, the next the customer knows is when the parts arrive at their door.”
“With the offer of two free months before needing to pay the platform’s monthly fees, and the free extensive marketing and web design options, new signs-ups to the platform have a low risk high reward way of tapping into brand new revenue streams. We are delighted to be able to do our bit to support the 3D printing industry,” Colman concluded.
