Ascent Technology

Strategic Solutions

When you think about the technology enterprise, do you think about it on a strategic or on a tactical level?  When you can engage outside services to help you with tactical needs and strategic initiatives that require expertise, leadership and accountability for results – then you have a true technology services partner.  Ascent is that partner. So, what’s the point to all this, you wonder.  You need an organization like ours that can help you on both levels of strategy and tactical delivery and that’s exactly why our clients love us. Think of Ascent as your completely configurable, value aligned, quality talent, vending machine.  Sometimes you want an individual and sometimes you want a team.  When we are aligned with our clients there is literally “completely consistent, on time delivery of the elevated talent you need to drive your enterprise”.  

Here is the best part – our service model seamlessly integrates with your supply chain and our systems actually make your systems better.  That’s right…we drive improvement of your enterprise supply chain. Our model is that exceptional.  It gets better:  Ascent has a root principal – it is one of that you will see throughout our service offering.  We look at each functional integration point of our company and your company and we think about how that interaction must be value-led.  So how are we value-led in our client interactions?  This is an interesting story.  Our CEO has been telling clients for years that before they hire a professional, engage a vendor or buy a piece of software/hardware they should engage with one of their direct peers at another company.  To deliver on that philosophy, Ascent founded three of the fastest growing professional associations for practitioners and thought leaders in three vital areas of the enterprise: Contingent Workforce Professionals (CWP), Data Management Professionals (DMP) and Project Portfolio Management Professionals (PPMP). These associations connect key decision makers with their peers at hundreds of other large enterprise companies such as Brocade, Genentech, Visa, Blue Shield of CA, Kaiser, Amgen, and Wells Fargo.  These ecosystems of buyer practitioners are run by the members for the members and effectively give your employees access to direct real world peers and practices without the distraction of job seekers or vendors.
