Welcome app version 2

Since our establishment in 2016 (formerly known as Blendin) and the launch of the Welcome app in the Netherlands in 2018, we have created a platform where newcomers can easily find (local) connections, activities, and information. Over the past years, we have been working on improving the app.

We discovered that using a ‘low-code’ platform allows us to build and modify the app faster and more conveniently. After careful consideration, we decided to rebuild our entire app using this technology. Last year, we rebuilt our entire app, and since October, our new app has been available. At the moment, we are working hard to improve the user-friendliness of the app, as well as developing new features, such as local information for each municipality and a registration system for participation hours of newcomers.
