New MSP Ascend Technologies Launches in the Midwest

By Stefania Viscusi

Managed service providers (MSPs) play an important role today as cloud technology and remote work are leading so many functions. In the mid-west region of the U.S. a new MSP, Ascend Technologies, has just launched to provide innovation and technologies to help businesses grow.

The new company is the result of the 2019 acquisition deal announced between West Monroe Partners’ Managed Services Division and Gratia Inc.

"We are launching Ascend as businesses are facing extraordinary change and uncertainty," said Wayne Kiphart, CEO, Ascend. "Our teams have come together at a critical time when supporting remote-workforce team collaboration while maintaining security is more crucial than ever. Not to mention, being on call 24x7 not only to provide technical support for remote workers but to help our clients in demanding industries redefine how to support a changing workforce. We are here to ensure operational continuity and support those on the frontlines.”

With Ascend Technologies, IT business leaders can have the confidence they need to make appropriate investments without forgoing cybersecurity threats.

The combined companies, backed by private equity firm M/C Partners, couple decades of managed services, cloud and infrastructure, service desk, application management, and data management experience.

Mark Nelson, Chief Strategy Officer at Ascend commented on the new company and what it brings to the market saying, "Bringing what has developed over the last 10 years within the Managed Services practice at West Monroe and combining it with the expertise of Gratia and backing of M/C Partners, Ascend will deepen our current solutions while expanding into new innovative services creating both organic and acquisitive growth to grow with our clients."

Ascend Technologies is headquartered in Chicago and employs more than 100 U.S.-based technical professionals across the Midwest and nationally.
