Ascent is a full-featured illustration software package that integrates speed, power, and flexibility to accommodate all of your marketing requirements. Ascent gives users the ability to run proposals that range from single life Ledger plans to complex non-Ledger plans involving hundreds or thousands of lives. Once these proposals become actual sales, Ascent offers unparalleled inforce reprojection capability to help service the case.

Ascent was designed to help insurers sell and service their customers in a multi-channel distribution environment. The software is constructed as a standard single life illustration system that can be transformed into a sophisticated multiple life / multiple plan system with a single button click. This allows a single platform to be utilized by multiple distribution channels ranging from those that require only a basic ledger to those with sophisticated multilife COLI needs.
