GLASS is a software ecosystem that builds purposeful, transformative technology for 21st century governments.
Governments are the biggest purchasers in the world, yet their procurement processes are outdated, complex, slow and require manual implementation by a highly-specialized workforce. GLASS' first product, COMMERCE, aims to tackle this specific problem.
COMMERCE is a global e-commerce marketplace for fully compliant, fast, and paperless government purchases (e.g. daily needs, office supplies, professional services, emergency items) where government agencies can buy, contract, or rent products and services from verified businesses.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

GLASS is agile, and developing their own marketplace algorithm for public best value powered by AI in order to help local and federal government agencies make the best decisions with a couple of clicks.
