Our customers speak for us

"We migrated from Lawson to Workday. We were on the leading edge of promoting Ascend to Workday because we had a great Ascend experience in Lawson—from scanning to PO matching to locking invoices for coding and approval. We had line pairing occur in Ascend rather than Workday, which saved about a third of the time."

Tony Lutz Senior Director of Shared Services

“We were really focused on solutions that were approved by Workday. Ascend’s user interface really feels like Workday’s to us. It's very natural to go to certain fields and say, ‘Okay, this is what it means in Workday, so this is what it means in Ascend.’ To me, it felt very instinctive.”

Brett Anderson Manager, Accounts Payable

“Ascend feeds into Workday so well, we don’t even have to think about it. If something works so well that it doesn’t even demand your attention, well to me that’s when you have your most success.”

Jaycee Bridges Director of Finance and Accounting

“The process efficiency and visibility that we get with Ascend is key. Having PO data extracted automatically and the PO image and PDF to match to the invoice is a big gain for us. We used to have piles and piles of invoices and the process has become much, much faster.”
