If someone told me years ago that I'd be a partner at a leading consulting firm in the Commerce industry, I'd have probably either laughed or stared in disbelief. From an early age, I fell in love with business and technology, but wanted to be a cog in the wheel, supporting a large corporation, and contributing to top line revenue numbers. And so I jumped in early to the world of technology in financial and commerce-based systems. And while the ride was exciting and profitable, I found that, as many have, working models compromised my integrity standards and posed risk to quality delivery of business benefits over speed of implementation. At times, I heard comments like 'You side with the customer too much', 'Good is good enough', and 'You are too forward thinking and assumptive'.
These values didn't resonate with me and after 14 years serving other people's objectives in leadership roles, I decided that there MUST be something better. A higher plane, so to speak, to ensure quality and integrity in efforts to help our customers scale their systems, and a better way of bringing relevant and meaningful value to our customer base. So in 2010, I took a huge leap and stepped out of my comfort zone to chase this dream, and shortly after, founded Ascent Enterprise Solutions. Our core values are simple: CUSTOMER First. QUALITY and VALUE in EVERYTHING that we do. FAIRNESS to our associates. And most importantly, EXPERIENCE to ensure that the DELIVERABLES that we produce will stay with our customers long after our projects are completed, and they will be able to stand on their own when we exit. And with these values in tow, we have spent years developing a proven methodology that focuses on these values to produce the best implementation results possible with systems and processes that truly deliver benefit to our clients.
