Public Sector & Education
Recent technological advancements are allowing public sector organizations and schools to offer more efficient services to the community. Citizens are demanding more accountability and flexibility from their government while still meeting the levels of transparency expected from the public sector. Inside the classroom, the use of technology has changed dramatically. Once relegated to a once-weekly class, computing has inserted itself into every aspect of the learning process. Children who are not presented with these tools risk facing a significant challenge as they move through life. Outside of the classroom educators are seeing new demands from parents and the community regarding communication and reporting of a child’s performance. Utilizing this technology in a safe, useful and cost-effective manner adds to those challenges. Ascent understands these demands and can tailor a solution across the spectrum.

We initially contracted with two larger consulting firms to replace our Oracle system with the Microsoft Dynamics ERP system. However, we found that we were not receiving the quality service we were expecting simply because the consultants assigned to the project were also assigned to numerous other clients.
As a result, many of the tasks on the project plan were falling through the cracks and behind schedule. Ascent was on the project quickly, implemented a solution in a timely manner and completed the work exceeding expectations.
