One Light at a Time, SolarAid is Changing the World
Posted By: 
Monday, July 14, 2014

SolarAid is a leading charity tackling climate change and poverty by creating a sustainable market for solar lights. Their goal is to eradicate the kerosene lamp from Africa by 2020.

With 1,125,866 lights sold, yes sold, SolarAid is well on their way to reaching their goal. Selling the lights and reinvesting their earnings back into their work is how they are creating a sustainable market. The ability to invest in innovation and improved distribution will help drive success, saving millions from fuel poverty and the terrible health effects of Kerosene fumes.

For our part, AscentERP is helping with the quote to sales, invoicing, procurement and global supply chain. It is also noteworthy that another AscentERP customer, Atama Solar, is a Shining Lights partner of SolarAid. Atama Solar recently worked with the SolarAid educational team to help light schools in Zambia.

Please take a look at the SolarAid website, and see how you can support this great cause.

Thank you SolarAid for Doing Great Things.

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.
