Ascentis Makes $500 Donation to the Greater Akron Canton Area Agency on Aging Foundation as Part of the Ascentis Referral Reward Program

Bellevue, Wash. — June 2010 — Ascentis Corporation, a market leader in easy-to-use human resources software and online payroll services, has awarded a $500 donation to the Greater Akron Canton Area Agency on Aging Foundation at the request of Barbara Kallenbach, Area Agency on Aging 10B CFO. The award was made after Kallenbach recommended Ascentis solutions to the Western Reserve Area Agency on Aging in Cleveland, Ohio.

Ascentis understands that the most valuable advertising is “word of mouth” from satisfied customers who recommend products and solutions to their colleagues. In appreciation of customers’ referrals, Ascentis offers a $500 reward (payable as a gift certificate, product training or a charitable donation) to customers who recommend Ascentis products and services.

The Ohio-based Area Agency on Aging 10B is a private, non-profit organization that helps older adults meet their long-term care needs. The Agency supports their efforts to remain in the community instead of in nursing facilities, and also supports family caregiver support programs. The Agency has been using Ascentis HR, the flagship Ascentis HRIS solution, since 2007. The decision to invest in an HRIS was a strategic one, as the Agency has experienced growth and needed an easy-to-use yet robust solution to support and automate critical HR processes.

All Area Agency on Aging staff is Lean certified, and Kallenbach is a champion of process waste reduction and efficiency gains in her division as well as for the agency. On a quarterly basis, CFOs from other agencies meet and share best practices. During one of these meetings, Kallenbach discussed the benefits that her agency has enjoyed from Ascentis solutions to her counterpart at the Western Reserve Agency on Aging. As a result, the Western Reserve Agency on Aging has become a new Ascentis client, and Ascentis rewarded Kallenbach with a $500 donation to the Greater Akron Canton Area Agency on Aging Foundation, per her request.

“I’d like to thank Ascentis for the charitable donation to the Foundation,” said Kallenbach. “I was very pleasantly surprised when my account manager called to tell me that I would be receiving this award! The Foundation is a great organization that strives to help aging adults by providing much needed home services, and through community outreach programs. The money will definitely be put to good use.”
