Going through security
March is roaring in with new promotions, a new version of Ascend, software updates, and more. Make sure you’re in the loop on everything going on at Ascend by signing up for our blog!
Dexter verification: As Trek moves closer to launching their new business-to-business site, they need to confirm your login credentials for the current site, Dexter. Please log out and back into your Dexter account to verify your information. After verifying your information, you should restart Ascend before creating a Trek order.
Visit Dexter for more information or reach out to Trek Customer Care with any questions!
Chicago bike shop thefts: There has been a recent chain of robberies at bike shops in the Chicagoland area, with at least 10 locations being hit and several stores being robbed more than once. We want to remind our retailers to be safe! Besides security systems and locking up, it’s important to make sure you have accurate inventory in Ascend and are tracking serial numbers. This allows you to easily verify all information on any items that go missing, if needed. It’s also a good idea to double-check and refresh your knowledge on how to pull that information for insurance claims.
Meraki theft prevention: Did know you Ascend has a partnership with Cisco Meraki? A Meraki system can include your networking, wireless, cameras, and more – all of which are centrally managed from the web! Any Meraki devices automatically connect to the Cisco Meraki cloud. You have complete visibility and control over your entire network over the web. Receive malware alerts and block distracting websites from being used during business hours. Any cameras can be accessed via the web, and the video footage is stored for the past 30 days.
Contact the Ascend sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
TCRM March promotion: The Trek Connect Retail Marketing (TCRM) 2019 ‘Trade up to a Trek disc road bike promotion’ is live for the month of March! If you are participating in this campaign, make sure your Ascend system is set up for the promotion and double-check that your staff is prepared with all the details!

The March 2019 version brings more functionality for Transfers, updated Trek product registration, improved customer notifications, and more. Watch the overview video today to learn more.
