Different private and state-subsidised organisations offer support for Swiss companies in foreign markets. What distinguishes Ascent from them?
Ascent is present abroad.
Thanks to own subsidiaries in most East European countries we can act quickly and with great efficiency. Most of our work is not performed in Switzerland, but in the target country of your project. This also leads to cost advantages: Our customers receive services corresponding to Swiss expectations for Eastern European prices.
We are not consultants.
Ascents work is not confined to consulting. We identify ourselves with a project and conduct it proactively to success. We also take over all operational duties on site.
We know the target countries.
Ascent works only in countries with whose language, business culture and economy we are familiar. However, we will not push customers to a certain location. Thanks to our wide network and the competence for different Eastern European countries we can react to the customer’s specific needs.
We assume responsibility.
Ascent is not an intermediary, but actively controls all resources. In defending the customer’s interests we act, as if we were a part of the customer’s company.
Our local representation offices are not just a loose network of contacts. All East European offices are actively and directly led by Ascent’s Swiss management.
