I am looking for a word.

When we want to say that

The new technology will recieve/has recieved a nice welcome from the industrial companies.

what is a better word instead "nice welcome"

  • Do you intend to say that the new technology will recieve/recieved a nice welcome from the industrial companies? The sentence that you have posted is not very coherent. – Vaibhav Apr 4 '15 at 6:35
  • @Vaibhav thanks. yes. I mean your sentence. also I am looking for a better word or sentence . please, also is "nice welcome" good in here or not? – Mohammad Reza Rezwani Apr 4 '15 at 6:46

    The sentence seems fine to me per se. Other variants exhibiting a similar response shown by the industries to the new technology may use words like: 'readily embraced', 'godsend', 'promptly accepted', 'congruous to' , etc. – Vaibhav Apr 4 '15 at 7:04
  • alex: "don't forget to mark it" ≠ "please mark it right away". You could (perhaps should?) wait until tomorrow; read more here. – J.R. Apr 4 '15 at 8:44

A very simple way to say this is to use well received:

We anticipate the new technology will be well received by industrial companies.

That two-word expression is common enough to have gained its way into some dictionaries. Moreover, it often gets used in news headlines or business reports, such as these:

New Scanning Technology Well Received at Texprocess
Radar systems made in Germany well received
Innovative products and systems well received by PHAN delegates

When used as a two-word adjective, the expression may get a hyphen:

Questek Technology Information Week: a well-received showcase of Barco’s latest product offering

Of course, there are several other words or phrases that could be used, such as become popular, or be attractive to:

We expect the new technology will become popular in the industrial sector.
We expect the new technology will be attractive to industrial companies.

If you don't mind using less formal language, consider:

We expect the new technology will be a hit among the industrial companies.

NOAD defines the noun hit as, among other things, "a successful venture".
