Salesforce and AscentERP

Tuesday, November 22, 2016

In case you missed it, Forbes’ recently published an article stating that Salesforce does not have an ERP offering, proving that political campaigns aren’t the only place you’ll find misinformation.  While we don’t hold it against the slightly biased and misled author, we do want to clarify: Salesforce has an ERP application.


Forbes got it right the first time when they wrote an article about the rise of Salesforce and highlighted their partnership with AscentERP.  As the number one CRM solution, Salesforce is a pioneer in the cloud industry, so it should come as no surprise that AscentERP is their top back office application. 


Streamline the Connection between Back Office and Front Door: AscentERP for Retail

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Retail is changing faster than ever in the industry’s history. Strategies that used to guarantee success now cause leading retail giants to close locations across the country, lose customers at every turn, and to wonder how to get back in the game.

Small and nimble companies are successfully driving customers to their sites with better customer service, faster turnaround, and better selection than the retail giants of old can offer in-store. With a customer base that’s wholeheartedly adopted the online shopping experience, the only way to compete in the world of retail today is to have a streamlined system that moves orders from the customer to the warehouse and back to the customer almost instantly.


Agility and Innovation are the New Currency in App Development

Friday, July 8, 2016

The age of designing, developing, and manufacturing something in a single iteration is long gone, particularly for software of any kind. Today, people expect the applications they use to improve regularly and over fairly short periods of time. No one imagines that they will download a new app once and never see updates. But gone too are the days of messy, inconvenient, buggy updates that made users nervous for fear that their device would suddenly stop working or become possessed and unusable.

How Can We Help?



Happy to Make the Cover of Manufacturing Technology Insights


Inventory models for calculating reorder points and optimal order quantities have been in existence long before the dawn of software era. When the first affordable automobile, Ford Model T was rolled off the assembly line, manufacturers were already reaping the financial benefits of inventory management by determining the answers to ‘When to deliver?’ and ‘How many to deliver?’ However, it seems an irony today—in the days of advanced information technology—that many companies are still not taking advantage of these fundamental inventory models. Organizations tend to have several systems to manage their business and often run their entire operations on excel spreadsheets which make activities such as assets tracking, equipment scheduling, or documenting essential incident details, snowball into their biggest headaches. This is a challenge that was comprehended beforehand by AscentERP. Co-founded by industry veterans Michael Trent, CEO, Shaun McInerney, President, and Akbar Rafiuddin, CTO—who bring years of experience in manufacturing, sales, and technology space respectively—AscentERP came in as an assistance stick for manufacturers who were struggling to position their next level of growth. In the course of their initiative, AscentERP found a perturbing obstacle: the silos and boundaries created between the business and IT by the existing ERP tools within organizations.

Through its AscentERP application, the company today breaks down the communication barriers in an organization and gets everyone on the same page. With an aim to support a flexible, sustainable, and extensible mentality, and also the warehouse and production floor, AscentERP provides an environment of collaboration—creating greater enterprise responsiveness, agility, and speed.

Companies can save resources that can be utilized to innovate products in accordance with dynamic market requirements,” says Rafiuddin. Along with its collaborative and enterprise-responsive capabilities, AscentERP also provides advisory services that present organizations with better implementation of workflows and processes.
