To provide all of our customers with the best updating experience, we've staggered the release for September 2020. Retailers currently on the May 2020 version of Ascend will receive the update during the week of September 7th. All other retailers can access it starting September 16th.
Easily provide historic service history and product recommendations.
Developed in close partnership with the pros at Trek Certified Service, the new Multipoint Inspection Checklist was designed to help your team communicate with customers and provide them with an easy to understand view of a bicycle's diagnostic and service history.
This new functionality will help facilitate bicycle intake, provide reminders for your techs as they service a bike, and will also give your sales team a guide for speaking with customers about potential service and product sell-through opportunities upon pickup or delivery.
