Ascend Tools is focused on working with organizations where there is synergy with our core company values:
Operating in an honest, ethical and transparent way is foundational to our company. It just makes good business and builds healthy and long term relationship. This way we can establish trust, lead the industry and possibly make contribution to strengthen it.
We bring innovation through new technology driven tools. We learn from our customers and try to help their business by bringing tools to solve problems – whether to make things easier, better or faster OR to introduce a new tool that they have been wanting. We would like to build our business by challenging standard practices and disrupting status-quo. Our customers become our partners. At that point, we believe, they would like to see leading and not following.
Our customers should be able to rely on us to serve them. We have done it before and we will continue to do it.
When we hire a new person, we explain how we do business. We tell them that we believe in being the best we can be and in continually improving. We ask them to be their best, and lead improvement where and when needed, because that is the only way we can be excellent.
