01/31/2006 - Expanded Ascentium Locates in Legion Building

When Spokane’s Aurora Consulting Group was acquired by Ascentium Corporation just over a year ago, some cynics feared that the Spokane office would be quietly closed, and another successful business would be “sucked” to the other side of the state. On the contrary, Ascentium Inland Northwest has made a major commitment to their Inland Northwest clients by increasing the staff and moving to an attractive and central 3500 square foot suite in the newly refurbished Legion Building. According to Amy Cleary, Director, Inland Northwest, “It was important to be downtown. We wanted to be centrally located, and are proud to be a part of the vitality and growth of downtown Spokane.”

Ascentium has offices in Bellevue, Portland, and Spokane, with two hundred and fifteen employees and growing. Ascentium ranks number 136 on the Inc. 500 list of Fastest Growing Private Companies in the United States and is one of the four fastest growing consultancies in the nation.

Ascentium is a strategic consulting firm that specializes in integrated marketing, business, and technology consulting on the enterprise level. They help their clients solve those knotty problems that are getting in the way of continued growth and development. Ascentium consultants work with clients to overcome business problems up front. “We understand that technology can be extremely powerful, but it is merely a tool. In order to ensure success, it must be answering a business problem, and provide measurable results,” Cleary states. The firm builds and then implements technology strategies that directly address the needs of the client business.

Ascentium provides a broad range of services. Consultants might help the client develop a technology “road map” and recommend tools or processes that will help the company achieve its goals. Following that, Ascentium might work with the client to implement the plan. The implementation might be hardware or software, or it might be implementation of a tool. When it is a new tool, Ascentium will assess the available tools for the purpose and make suggestions.

“Ascentium has expertise in developing information-driven business solutions based on the Microsoft enterprise platform and toolset,” says Cleary. “Ascentium has demonstrated its commitment and understanding of Microsoft’s technologies by becoming a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner. Many of Ascentium’s services are based on Microsoft technologies that help answer portal and collaboration needs, enterprise project management, business intelligence and customer relationship management needs.”

Ascentium business consultants bring a vertical depth of knowledge to solving their clients’ business problems --especially in healthcare, manufacturing, and utilities, according to Cleary. "It is this depth of knowledge, especially in large implementations, that sets Ascentium apart, and increases their value to their clients," Cleary states. Their clients range from medium-sized companies like Columbia Basin Healthcare, Duvoisin and Associates, Buck Knives, and Panhandle Bank to huge companies like Microsoft and Boeing. “We are passionate about solving business problems and providing measurable value to our clients,” says Cleary

Ascentium also has an extensive Creative and Marketing group that helps businesses drive awareness and demand for their products or services. In their work for Boeing, Ascentium received “Webby Worthy” honors at the 9th annual Webby awards for their work with The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, is the leading international award honoring excellence in Web design, functionality and creativity. There were more than 4,000 entries.

The Inland Northwest employees at Ascentium love their new home in the Legion Building. They have expansive views from their 5th floor suite, and for good weather, they have a large shaded balcony area. They have room to expand, and are hiring consultants ranging from business consultants in health care and lean manufacturing to technical and information architects.
