Quality is paramount with any IT project but every business also has to keep costs under control. The system your business needs must be delivered at a price it can afford – and you need to be sure the solution suggested is the best available.
Our ‘nearshore’ model offers the ideal blend of cost control, expertise and quality management. Ascent has robust quality procedures in place at every stage of a project. Crucially, we have highly trained and highly motivated developer teams. Working across a very wide range of technologies from our centre in Malta, our developers are supported by a committed sales and communications team within the UK.
Your business goals are our starting point when designing an effective solution. We can take a project from initial ideas all the way to implementation, working closely with you to understand objectives and business processes. Careful control procedures mean that design, coding and maintenance are achieved seamlessly, lowering your risks and reducing outages.
Ascent enjoys a very low attrition rate – at less than 4% it is one of the best in the industry. A finely tuned recruitment process means that skilled and motivated individuals join Ascent, including top graduates, attracted in part by a well established and successful graduate sponsorship programme (which includes not only financial support for selected undergraduates but also important work-experience opportunities). Ascent works hard to find and retain the professionals and graduates who want to make a real impact on organisations. We take recruitment very seriously. Our graduate development programme has been created to support IT managers, analysts and project managers who want to develop their potential. We want to attract well-rounded individuals who understand not only IT but wider business issues. Our goal is always to find the people who have the communications skills and self-management capabilities any good project needs.
The individuals who do join Ascent stay with us to develop their career – because of our long-term commitment to staff and thanks to a very sympathetic working environment.
The end result of our efforts is a broad skills range, rapid learning cycles and continuity of service. Ascent can deliver everything from industry-standard solutions through to projects at the cutting edge of software technologies. We would very much value the opportunity to meet you face to face and show you more about how Ascent works and what sets us apart. In particular, we would like to show you concrete examples of where we have taken a project with agreed deliverables and delivered far more, looking constantly for opportunities to improve approach and create a more effective business outcome.
