The major focus for Ascent is to get inventory demand planning accurate, starting with order management, by ensuring proper process and interfaces that manage parts inventory, kitting and returns.
The movement of goods and services from the source through a distribution channel, right up to the final customer, consumer, or user, and the movement of payment in the opposite direction, right up to the original producer or supplier. Ascent covers this entire workflow.
With increasingly complex, high-tech equipment, customers rely on their equipment dealer for service expertise more than ever. Instead of focusing solely on selling a product, companies are redeveloping their strategy to match the increasing needs of customers. Ascent adds value to this process by ensuring traceability and accuracy.
