Engage Logo


ENGAGE’s mission is to simplify the B2B transaction process by automating financial workflows. Simply digitizing paper processes has been commercialized by many solutions, however, ENGAGE is the first to use predictive scheduling and data validation to reduce touchpoints and eliminate redundant processes, thus changing the way transactions are scheduled, managed and approved. Additionally, layering on ENGAGE’s E-invoicing platform automates your workflows end-to-end, from scheduling services all the way through payment processing. One automated platform, order to payment.

Discussion on Digitization:

Exum Instruments Logo

Exum Instruments

Exum builds instruments and software ecosystems to increase the speed of materials development and discovery, offering easy access to high performance at a low cost. Exum’s first instrument, the MassboxTM, is the first commercial Laser Ablation Laser Ionization Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer (LALI-TOF-MS), capable of analyzing any solid material—precisely, rapidly, and inexpensively. From manufacturing to resource extraction, numerous industries require chemical characterization of their solid materials, however, they lack in-house capabilities. Until now, no single instrument offers high-sensitivity measurement of the full periodic table, ease-of-use for solid materials, and low-cost operations.

FLITE believes that these new surface engineering techniques can lead to safer products, a cleaner environment, and fantastic new future designs. We see a future where aircraft don’t need chemical deicing, where clean water flows easily through pipelines, ships sail the ocean without toxic paints, and medical devices operate safely in the body for decades. Many companies talk about the impact they have on society or the environment but FLITE believes that our techniques can deliver changes on a global scale.
