“We made notable progress year to date on each of our key objectives, particularly with regard to our software tools and services, as well as with enterprise manufacturing customers,” shared Greg Kress, Shapeways’ Chief Executive Officer. “We are encouraged by our growing traction of SaaS contract commitments on our refreshed MFG platform. We have launched several new software features in recent months, which should provide for increased customer acquisition, retention, and lifetime value, as well as additional sources of revenue. For example, the 3D Model Viewer is a feature requested by users, which allows viewing 3D models of custom parts, streamlining the quoting process, and allowing for greater accuracy and speed.”
“With MFG Materials, we are providing a very compelling return to our customers by helping them save on raw material costs. In addition, our increased customer focus on middle market and enterprise opportunities has translated into several exciting new multi-year customer contracts and developing a growing pipeline in our target industries.”
Kress continued, “We believe the market is approaching an inflection point in the overall adoption of digital manufacturing solutions. Furthermore, we believe that Shapeways is well-positioned to take advantage of this market opportunity across an array of industries with a platform that combines high-quality, flexible, on-demand manufacturing with purpose-built proprietary software. We are pleased with our ongoing traction and will remain disciplined and prudent as we execute our operating plan.”
