Ascent Solutions is an end-to-end Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution providing an enterprise class inventory and order management solution.
About Ascent Solutions
It goes beyond inventory management. Ascent has Operations 360 that extends the utility of the Salesforce Sales Cloud with real-time inventory, purchase, sales, rental orders, finance management, and even reverse logistics data. Ascent Solutions basically arms business owners with the tools to help them make the best decision for their business based on real-time, accurate, and accessible information.
The company also gives businesses the ability to focus on big decisions. By automating some of order management and fulfilment processes, business owners can have more time developing the business rather than simply running it.
What makes them truly stand out from the rest of the ERPs available on the Salesforce platform is in how quick and easy it is to deploy the Ascent Solutions system. There’s no need for expensive and laborious network infrastructure or hardware set-up.
To help Ascent Solutions send automated invoices and accept a wider range of payment options, they decided to use Kulturra’s Payment Center.
Kulturra caught up with Ascent Solutions, to talk about how Payment Center has helped their company in giving their customers a truly hassle-free experience in dealing with the company.
According to Ascent Solutions Co-Founder and President, Shaun McInerny, processing credit card information was a sore point prior to deploying Kulturra’s Payment Center
“Ascent would have to enter a customer’s credit card information directly into the payment processor’s website. Then we would have to close out the invoice in Ascent and enter the payment details into our accounting system, Xero.”
Kulturra’s Payment Center made the process much easier by managing and safeguarding customer information. This allowed Ascent to enter customer information only once in the beginning and just retrieve the information when it’s needed again at the next billing cycle.
McInerny also likes Payment Center’s automated invoicing features. It streamlines the invoicing and payment processing which leads to savings in both time and effort.
“We have automated all of our monthly and quarterly recurring customers. There is zero human intervention with our recurring clients. Credit cards are processed automatically and invoices sent without any human intervention. If this process was still manual, we would need to dedicate 4 to 5 hours to complete the monthly tasks.”
