HRMS Solutions (HRMS) and ATS Management Consulting (ATS) are proud to announce their strategic merger, establishing the newly formed Ascend, Inc. This unification brings together more than 110 certified consultants and management of over 300 active projects to create one of the largest exclusive UKG® services partners in North America, establishing Ascend as a dominant force in the UKG partner ecosystem.

“By combining our strengths, we can now offer all-inclusive award-winning services across the entire UKG Pro suite for mid-market and enterprise organizations,” said Lou Sylaj, CEO of Ascend. “We will provide a dependably exceptional experience for UKG customers wherever they are in their use, whether they are transitioning to the platform or already live and looking to make the most of its capabilities.”

Sylaj added that Ascend will continue to emphasize a personalized and responsive delivery approach as it aspires to become the most sought-after full-service UKG partner across the U.S. and Canada.

I am excited to see our two teams working together and the impact we will have on UKG customers.”

In addition to shared services delivery philosophies, HRMS and ATS share people-centric cultures that prioritize employee well-being over profits to attract and retain top talent. They have been recognized by Great Place To Work® and Top Workplaces-Denver for several consecutive years. Going forward, Ascend will continue to emphasize employee empowerment by fostering a culture of ownership and maintaining a customer-centric approach.

“We invite you to share in our journey as we continue to bring more value to every UKG project implementation and maximize the UKG user experience,” said Sylaj.
