Delivering Certified Technology Solutions

Ascend Technologies Certifications

Why certifications are so necessary to our clients & associates.

Many companies claim success when they can connect to a printer or the Internet. Establishing professional credibility is essential to any organization dedicated to bringing clients best-in-class services, and certifications play a uniquely important role in technology services. There is no industry more synonymous with continuous evolution than is technology. Its power to transform organizations and entire industries is well established — but the uncertainty and risks in applying technologies are equally clear and can be daunting for business leaders.

Partnering with professionals who devote their careers to the field has almost become a given to compete in today’s commercial and regulatory environments. Choosing to work with those partners who have attained the most advanced and up-to-date IT certifications from industry-leading bodies is among the most efficient paths to achieving the most productive and cost-effective partnerships.

Technology service providers staffed by professionals with IT certifications first convey competence and dedication. In evaluating personal qualifications, certifications reflect an individual’s investment of time and money to continuous improvement in knowledge and skills. And when teams of such capable and motivated engineers are mobilized on behalf of clients, they increase the opportunities to improve:

  • Security
  • Productivity
  • Innovation
  • Growth

The competitive advantage becomes tangible realities with a significant positive impact on the organization as a whole.


Working within a client organization, a team of certified professionals can ensure important reliability and consistency of internal systems and processes, which constitutes the backbone for responding to opportunities, reducing risks …and ultimately empowers the expansion of the organization’s network, reach, and market penetration.

But an equally important measure of the value of certifications is simply what they say so visibly about leadership’s support for employees’ professional development. Providing access to training affords immeasurable benefits of knowledge towards advancements in technologies, strategies, tools, and updates.
