The Lean Enterprise

In Today's World, It's All About Lean.

How quickly, efficiently, and with cohesion can we bring a product or an idea to the marketplace? Once the product or idea has been born, the challenge becomes how to efficiently and seamlessly manage and grow the business.

When deciding on a business system you should constantly ask yourself, "Is the technology I have chosen working for my business or am I working for the system?" The answer is obvious: Always choose the solution that is flexible, sustainable, and extensible enough to match the needs of your business — not the other way around.

AscentERP was built from the start not only to support a flexible, sustainable, and extensible mentality, but also to support the warehouse and production floor. AscentERP was built from scratch to take advantage of the multi-tenant Cloud and to support the most complex and simple business process.

AscentERP did not start as something else; we were not an accounting system that was trying to become something it was not. We did not take an existing on-premise application and convert it to the Cloud. Ascent was built for the multi-tenant Cloud as a true warehouse and manufacturing product. This is a key differentiator between the competition and us.

AscentERP, with the platform, provides an environment of collaboration, creating greater enterprise responsiveness, agility, and speed. Now everyone can work from the same playbook anywhere, anytime!

You Can Accomplish This Through the Following AscentERP Features:

  • Item Master
  • Opportunities to Quotes
  • Sales Order
  • Master Planner
  • Purchase Order
  • Production Work Order
  • RMA — Return Management Authorization
  • Pick-Pack-Receive-Invoice
  • Shipping Integration
  • Partnerships with world class accounting systems
Unlike traditional in-premise software that requires large information technology investments, constant updates, and patches, AscentERP is flexible, scalable, and requires a bare-bones IT infrastructure. With the platform, AscentERP is truly the most scalable and powerful WMS/MRP solution in the Cloud today. Your decision-making will not be based on unpredictable demand, but on actionable metrics.

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. Organizations using AscentERP don’t have to configure their processes based on the tool, as the firm delivers a flexible solution which can adapt and evolve according to the business processes that are already in place. “With AscentERP, inventory management doesn’t have to be a time-consuming, complex process. 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.
