Power your business with Ascend and Analytics
Before we talk about Analytics, here’s another plug for Version 2.2. Since we released it last Monday, over 250 locations have updated. If you didn’t attend one of our webinars, click here to view a recording. Please note that 2.2 has an upgraded PIN pad interface. It does not support serial port connections. Only USB PIN pads will work. Contact our Support Team if you have need to replace any old serial port PIN pads.
Ascend Analytics is your online business intelligence system. It’s available to everyone that has Ascend. More than 500 locations are using it. If you’re not using it, make plans in 2012 to change that. When you’re ready, contact our Support Team and they’ll tell what you need to do to get started.
If you’re using Analytics, one of the most powerful things you can do is to set your budget for the year. It’s a great way to measure how you’re doing against your financial goals. With 2012 quickly approaching, now is the time to create your budget. Click here for instructions and follow the steps to create a new financial budget. We also have an Ascend University on-line training module that walks you through the process. Contact us if you need an Ascend U sign-on.
This winter we’re coming to a city near you for in-person seminars. Ask anyone that has attended these sessions and they’ll tell you that they’re one of the best business seminars they’ve ever attended. We’ll be repeating our first seminar series and we’ve added an advanced day as well. So, even if you attended the first time around, you’ll want to attend again. Click here for a schedule and class details and contact us now to reserve your seats.
If you can’t make it out to see us you’ll want to check out our new video series. The entire “Power Your Business With Ascend” 1 day seminar has been broken down to a series of 15 to 20 minute segments for you to view at your convenience. Go you to the Training page on our website and view them from there.
And finally, we want to hear from you. Tell us and your fellow bike dealers how using Ascend Analytics has helped you and your business. Post a comment to this blog post to tell your story.
