March 19, 2013 - The AscendersTech Anniversary

March 19, 2013 – The AscendersTech Anniversary

Today marks the completion of 5 years. The journey has been a happy, exciting, emotionally charged and sometimes heartbreaking one. In other words it’s been one big rollercoaster ride!

There have been moments when the adrenaline kept pumping till you thought your head was going to burst! Then there have been moments when you twiddled your thumbs waiting for the next bomb to explode.

There have been surprises, pleasant interludes and rude shocks. Staunch loyalties have been tested and there has also been blatant treachery.

Believe me, after AscendersTech, life just hasn’t been the same…

Our Quality systems are in place what with a recertification of the ISO9001:2008 Standards. It is interesting to note that our BPO sister concern Ascenders Business Solutions has also been judged up to the mark in Quality procedures and has been certified too.

Our memberships have only expanded the last year. Along with NASSCOM, ESC, ERA, TASMIA, eWIT and Tie, we have also been awarded a prestigious membership in ISF – Indian Staffing Federation and the IACC (Indo American Chamber of Commerce).

It is also a matter of pride to mention that we have been awarded the Times Group Award namely The Pathfinders 2013 – the Top Ten Entrepreneurs in Tamil Nadu.

Apart from Indonesia, we have also put our foot into the US and have stretched our HRO as well as Technology expertise there.

In the technology front, we have diversified significantly with the new caption Enhancing ROI from ERP in terms of servicing all major global ERPs such as SAP, PeopleSoft and Oracle apart from our home grown strength – Microsoft Dynamics Axapta ERP & CRM where we have the wherewithal to successfully complete the End to End life cycle of implementation and beyond.

The new face of AscendersTech has seen a drastic makeover – our incursion into the other ERP sectors has brought in a fresh outlook and an entirely new business model. Already we have acquired an exemplary customer from the US for whom we are supporting in terms of oracle Apps; our Oracle journey has fruitfully begun. We have a team of Oracle professionals on board working with their US counterparts on a complicated project that keeps them fully occupied.

In the same manner, AscendersTech has been eyeing the SAP & PeopleSoft market with similar offerings – the most prominent being ROI from ERP. Soon we will be in the midst of a lot of traction in this territory as well.

We have also bravely marched into the product space with two budding and brilliant tools namely the Ascend Edifice and the Ascend HRO.

Ascend Edifice is a product that caters to the Residential Building Industry especially looking after the residents and their issues mainly in the Facility Management segment. Ascend Edifice would bring all the residents together on a common platform in order to facilitate a comfortable community atmosphere.

Ascend HRO is a product meant for the corporates and consultancies with regard to their recruitment activities. AscendersTech has implemented it internally and we are finding it an extremely beneficial tool.

Both products are built on the Microsoft Dynamics CRM foundation and have without a doubt been exhibiting its XRM features at every stage of the development cycle. The team behind the two products is a young and vibrant lot who deserve a hearty applause for their tireless work.

The recruitment team as well as the technology team is steadily growing not just in size but also in terms of quality output. Our clientele is also growing proportionately as our Business Development team never rests till they hit their targets. The tiny yet lively support team strives to bring in the best amenities and facilities to the rest of us and we are indebted to them for making the most creative use of their limited resources.

We expect the sixth year to be filled with wonders; we wait enthusiastically for inspiration that we know will come from within as we witness the best of Ascenders bloom under duress and spread their wings into new horizons.

Team Ascenders, it’s time for a new beginning.

As there has been an exodus, there will always be an influx; let’s welcome both the old and the new this year, hoping to learn from both.

It's going to be the Best Year ever!

It’s going to be the Best Year ever!

Ascenders Technologies Private Limited has launched a new product application based on RFID technology on 15 July’09. RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. It is used for Automatic Data Capture (ADC).
Ascenders Technologies has created a Library Management System which is RFID enabled. It provides a wholly transparent stock control on all books and media available in a library. Ascenders Technologies has incorporated the RFID enabled Library Management System into its very own Campus Management Solutions. Ascenders Campus Solutions comprises all modules related to an educational institution set up, right from the moment a potential student walks into the institution and years later, walks out having graduated to the next level in his/her life. It is an ERP by itself built on Open Source Technologies. The Library Management System of an educational institution is an integral part of Campus Management. This aspect has now been successfully transitioned from its original and mostly manual cum systems based management to a much more high tech secure and risk free package comprising simply a wireless handheld reader, powerful antenna strategically positioned and RFID Smartcards. These eCampus cards act also as an overall monitor of students’ activities ranging right from identification to class attendance, exam attendance, fees payment, arrears and dues, extra and co curricular activities etc. In a nutshell, it covers the entire student history across various aspects of his/her campus life.
Ascenders Technologies is also in the process of integrating RFID technology into Hospital Management Solutions thereby reducing paper work to the maximum and being able to track and monitor patients’ well being much more efficiently. Again the same simple technology consisting of a handheld reader, antenna and RFID cards breaks down voluminous documentation procedures and manual processes involving the patient, doctors and Hospital management. The patient’ entire medical history can be captured into his/her eMedical card and be produced to any hospital already equipped with the necessary corresponding technology anywhere and the required treatment may be continued, started or restarted depending on the situation the patient is found in. The necessary doctors with the prerequisite specialization can be brought into the picture; existing medical details will already be ready thus avoiding delays.
This RFID technology can also be incorporated in various sectors involving supply chain management wherein accountability for bulk stocking of materials and details about expiry of the materials stocked are of utmost importance. With a sweep of the wireless handheld reader, logistics can be incorporated and vital statistics of any quantity can be saved seamlessly, thus optimizing business to the maximum and reducing exhausting paper work simultaneously. Fraudulence can be minimized as items in bulk or individually can be tracked at any given point of time. Fleet management, inventory management and supply chain management are only a few of the applications that are in the pipeline. A lot more innovative and enterprising solutions all RFID enabled will be launched soon that should keep business owners relatively stress free while handling their assets.
