This a Sales Pitch

Podcast Episode: 5

At Ascent Cloud we believe in transparency, therefore, we must admit this episode is a sales pitch. BUT it’s not your typical sales pitch. Ascent Cloud solutions are helping teams prepare to return to the office, the field, or whatever your “new abnormal” looks like.

This month, Cassie Dodd, Director of Marketing, is joined by her Ascent Cloud colleagues Craig Bickley, SVP of Sales, and Ben Gibbs, Director of Solution Engineering, to discuss Ascent Cloud’s solutions, Geopointe and LevelEleven, and how we’re helping teams get back to business.

In this episode, they chat about:

  • The future of work- offices, remote locations, or a hybrid model?
  • Recent challenges we’ve seen throughout many organizations
  • What is Ascent Cloud and how can we help?
