COMPANY OVERVIEW:

Having recognized the industry's lack of security and technology integrations, high credit card rates, and complicated reservations and reconciliation processes, we have provided the leading payment solution for rentals and lodging for the last twenty years.

Through the years, our team has gained profound expertise in the field and is proud to have established a stand-out reputation for excellence. Why? Because our clients come first, and we always strive to provide the best customer service, support, and education. At Ascent, we never let our clients become just another account number.

We mean it when we say we believe in making a difference and are driven by our core values of trust, transparency and accountability, which is evident not only in how we work with our clients but with our team members as well.

Interested? Apply today to work with us and experience what it’s like to be a part of the Ascent difference.
