There are many things that can be said about DreamForce, a distant memory is not one of them!

Thanks to our customers, employees, partners and Salesforce personnel, we had our biggest and most productive DreamForce ever. We met and reconnected with many of our existing customers. We had detailed conversation with prospective new customers, two week later, we are still talking, demonstrating and working with many prospective new customers. Thank you, we appreciate your confidence.

We also reconnected and met many employees and industry analysts. AscentERP is no longer the best kept secret on the Appexchange. Our popularity and constant innovation have now earned us some long awaited recognition. Follow us at @AscentERP as we re-tweet analysts blogs and tweets.

As or our new innovations, we introduced and launched Ascent Rental on the Appexchange. Ascent Rentals is a 100% native application that allows companies that rent to manage their entire business on the cloud. We introduced our first Apple iTunes application that allows iPods, iPhone 5’s and iPad Mini’s when paired with a Honeywell Captuvo to perform real barcode scanning. No longer relying on the iOS camera, we have truly brought the worlds leading consumer device into the enterprise.

Finally, there is the Bosma Enterprise story. Working closely with Bosma, Indianapolis's largest employer of the blind and visually impaired, we created and rolled out the ability to operate the warehouse with voice commands! Using iPads, bluetooth barcode scanners and barcode label printers, Bosma’s entire warehouse and production operation are now managed with AscentERP.

Keep on eye on AscentERP, more great innovation and more great customer stories to come.

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.
