Ascender HCM Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators

Ascender, previously known as Talent2 Human Resources Managed Services, offers advanced payroll solutions using SaaS, co-managed and fully-managed delivery options and has consolidated reporting and multiple languages and currency capabilities. Their proprietary platform allows them to seamlessly tackle very large, complex clients that require process re-engineering, process standardization and automation, and extended payroll solutions.
