After listening to customer feedback and navigating hurdles, AscentERP supports work orders that will increase productivity and open doors to new ways of doing business. There are many exciting developments beginning with these four features:

Work Orders

The answer to everything you wanted to do with PWO, but never could. Work Orders for Ascent 2.0 goes beyond tracking inventory and allows users to manage people and processes when managing their repair business in an integrated and efficient system.

Imagine entering a sales order that automatically generated a work order, directing an employee to pull product, take action like repair the product and then ship and or invoice it. At the same time, inventory, cost, and employee time is being tracked. Is your work load getting easier?

Additional AscentERP Work Order features:
  • Mobile ready
  • Sequential work orders
  • Invoicing
  • Inventory management
  • Custom interfaces
  • Record various types of work, expenses, testing and other categories


In the past, AscentERP and Ascent Rental have relied on the case object of Salesforce. The Salesforce decision to remove cases from Sales Cloud and only support cases in Service Cloud would have left future customers in return management trouble. 

The solution is, of course, Ascent. We have uncoupled our RMA from the case object ensuring that Sales Cloud users can still have RMA and that warehouse staff in Service Cloud organizations will not need a Service Cloud licenses just to handle returns.

If you love Salesforce cases, we’re still supporting that as well. But for those who have encountered licensing issues with the service cloud, AscentERP returns is an efficient and cost effective solution. We’re certain customers will appreciate the added flexibility and the integration with Work Orders.

Recorded Costing

Margin can fluctuate depending on a number of variants, but typical recorded cost systems don’t take those things into account. That’s why your accounting department will rejoice with these new features:
  • Record historical cost of goods at every inventory transaction
  • Recorded cost by Purchase Price on PO, Item Cost, or Historical Lot Cost
  • Multiple currencies supported

Decimal Precision Control

Ascent users will notice a shift in the way decimal precision control is handled. Instead of depending on us to designate the decimals for currency and quantity related fields, users will be able to make those adjustments as needed. While this may be small change, we hope that continuing to empower our customers will make for a better and easier experience.

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.
