We're making some updates to your update
You provided us with feedback and we're making changes! Our development team is working hard to implement some updates to the newest version of Ascend, so we've temporarily halted all upgrades to May 2020. Check back on this page for more details soon.
March 2020 gets you back to simple basics by preventing accidentally closing out of work orders too early.
Work orders with active Work Order Details that aren't yet marked as Completed can't be finished as a sale. Even if they're paid in full. And work orders with any active Work Order Details cannot be unmarked as a work order . These updates ensure the work doesn't get lost in the shuffle, and your customers get their repairs in a timely manner.

Access more metrics and detailed comparison reporting.
Ascend HQ provides you with a plethora of reporting tools that you can access anywhere you have an internet connection - whether that's in the store, at home, or on the go. On the Analytics page, the Retail Profit Machine metric gives you a quick overview of your most important business information - and new Average Work Order, Average Days in Stock, and NPS values add even more data to your dashboard.
Compare sales and inventory performance from year to year with the Category Analysis report so you can make data-driven decisions about what products to keep on your sales floor.
Contactless is the new normal.
Update to superpower your payments.
Starting with May 2020, Ascend customers with integrated Chase payment processing in the US can now accept near-field communications (NFC) payment options like Apple Pay, Google Pay, and VISA payWave.
We've also simplified the choices customers see when they're using a physical card and added the ability to view transaction details during checkout. Ingenico payment terminals now show sales items, taxes, shipping charges, discount totals, payments made, and total due.
