Version 3 Project Update – Milestone Alert!
We’ve reached a major milestone in our project to take Ascend to the cloud. This week we started internal testing on the first release of Ascend Version 3.
It took me four steps to get set up:
- Get the web address from our fantastic development team.
- Open up my Google Chrome browser and paste in the address.
- Log into Ascend (picture below!).
- Start playing. (My first transaction was to sell myself an extra-large University of Wisconsin cycling jersey. Go Badgers!)
I didn’t have to install anything and I could start using the program right away because it’s the same interface I’ve known for years. It was a very simple and exciting experience.
Of course there are quirks to be worked out, but there’s nothing that we won’t get past. Our next milestone is to get Version 3 up and running in Trek’s cafeteria. Ascend currently handles over 500 transactions a day in there, so we have to make sure the system is dialed and fast.
