We have the knowledge
The newest version of Ascend is live, along with the Ascend University video for the most noticeable part of the update. Trek Fest starts this week and, if you use Trek Connect Retail Marketing, your spring coupons are also live. There’s a lot of information here, but luckily, you have Ascend to help organize and keep track of it! There’s even an awesome benchmark report that can help you compare your data to that of other Ascend retailers like you.
Spring has sprung: The Spring 2018 version of Ascend is available. Released on March 20th, Spring 2018 has set a new record for downloads in its first week! Over 65% of Ascend retailers have already updated to Spring!
Promo power: One of the changes you’ll see in Spring 2018 is that On Sales have been renamed! Ascend now uses the more commonly known term: Promotions. The Promotions Wizard also has a new home in Database Explorer. Check out our new video on Ascend University to learn more.
Trek Fest runs from this Thursday, March 29th to Sunday, April 8th. Every Trek bike over $299.99 is on sale, and all Bontrager accessories (excluding wheels and apparel) are on sale at 20% off. Make sure to save the link to our help article, which includes information on the queries you should run after the sale to get your rebates.
Update your TCRM coupons: Trek Connect Retail Marketing‘s spring catalog has been sent out to customers, so if you are partnered with TCRM, make sure you have those coupons live in your Ascend system. If you downloaded your coupons early, you may need to manually update a few. These coupons were accidentally posted with a Description that says 2017 instead of 2018:
- TCCATSP201718 = Trek Connect 2018 Spring Catalog ($20)
- TCCAT1IN201718 = Trek Connect 2018 In-store Spring Catalog ($20)
- TCCATSU201718 = Trek Connect 2018 Summer Catalog ($20)
- TCCAT2IN201718 = Trek Connect 2018 In-store Summer Catalog ($20)
