Fueled by customer-driven organic growth and acquisitions, ASCENT- Center for Technical Knowledge is celebrating two decades of success as a premier learning content developer for engineering software applications. With customers in over 100 countries, ASCENT’s training courseware, eLearning and custom technical writing and editing services help advance the skills of thousands of design professionals each year.
“For over 20 years, customers have come to us for our unique ability to boost productivity by designing high quality training programs for their design and engineering software needs, and for that we say a heartfelt thank you,” says Paul Burden, director of product development for ASCENT. “As we celebrate this milestone anniversary, we look back at how our culture of quality and innovation along with the changing business needs of our customers, has allowed us to extend our offerings beyond training. Many of our team members have been with us from the beginning and take great pride in sharing their creative approaches to help our customers succeed.”
Organizations including Engineering News Record Top 100 firms, universities and colleges, Autodesk Authorized Training Centers, mechanical design firms, governments and utility agencies trust ASCENT for content on design and engineering tools from Autodesk, PTC and Dassault Systèmes. Customers such as Duke Energy, Hagerman & Company, Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, Jonas Club Software, Rand 3D, IMAGINiT and other innovative organizations seek out ASCENT’s unrivalled custom written documents, robust eBooks and rich eLearning content on the interactive ProductivityNOW platform.
“As a former Rand Worldwide leader who oversaw the ASCENT organization during their early years, it’s truly inspiring to see the team achieve this remarkable milestone,” says Joe Oswald, president, Jonas Club Software. “When the Professional Services team in my current company wanted to professionalize the documentation and forms they used, we needed to partner with the best. We engaged the ASCENT team and as anticipated, they exceeded our expectations by analyzing our requirements and existing resources to create a solution that improves the process of collecting key implementation data from our clients.”
The entire ASCENT team would like to thank the thousands of customers from around the globe who have entrusted ASCENT to provide mission critical documentation.
