Cancer Council of SA, one simple goal: Beat Cancer!
Posted By: 
Sunday, August 24, 2014

Every day, 25 South Australians will be told they have cancer – a disease which will affect one in two people at some point in their lives.

Cancer Council SA, believes they can and will beat cancer and there are things we can all do every day to bring that day closer.

Cancer Council SA funds cancer research through the Beat Cancer Project – a strategic cancer research partnership with SA Health and South Australia’s flagship research facility the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI).

They also focus on prevention programs, such as SunSmart and Quitline 13 7848, to help South Australians cut their cancer risk, as well as lobbying government for legislative changes and increased funding for programs such as the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program.

Cancer Council SA provides support services for people affected by cancer, their families and friends through accommodation (for people staying in Adelaide for cancer treatment), Cancer Council 13 11 20, counselling services and support groups.

Cancer Council SA is also well known for its national fundraising events: Daffodil Day; Biggest Morning Tea; Pink Ribbon Day and local events such as Ride for a reason held in conjunction with the Santos Tour Down Under and the Bupa Challenge Tour, or the People’s Choice Credit Union Undies Run for Bowel Cancer.

For our part AscentERP allows Cancer Council to accurately monitor what stock they have available for their fundraising events. Ascent records what stock is returned at the end of each event so that they are able to identify what products to invest in. It also enables Cancer Council to identify which products have the highest sell through so they can maximize their fundraising potential.

Let’s all hope the Cancer Councils good work will spread across the globe!

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.
