Helping children reach their potential.
Ascend is a comprehensive Early Childhood Integrated Data System to manage your State’s early childhood programming and better inform your daily decisions about the children, programs and workforce that you are dedicated to serving.
Ineffective data management tools can greatly hinder on-the-job effectiveness. At TCC, we are committed to improving the processes used in early childhood systems and alleviating obstacles that make your job difficult.
Data stored in multiple systems is not easily accessible and leads to ineffective operations.
Dealing with paper, inefficient processes, overworked staff, and overstuffed file cabinets leads to many complications.
Lack of Insight
Without an integrated system, it’s difficult to make well-informed decisions that ensure programs are most beneficial for children and families.
With tight budgets and schedules, workers don’t have time to read technology manuals to get the information they need, and they shouldn’t have to.
Old systems and technology make it difficult to access accurate, real-time information.
TCC brings over 15 years of technology, process, and early childhood systems expertise to the development of Ascend, a comprehensive Early Childhood Integrated Data System that can be configured to meet any need.
Ascend is a powerful combination of technology and business process automation that is customizable to your State's unique programs and policies. Ascend is easy to integrate with other systems as business needs arise. At TCC, our mission is to ensure all children receive the high-quality education they deserve.
