Blindata is now part of Ascend

Ascend, one of the country’s leading tech-startups and a proven digital transformation specialist, has successfully acquired Ball Software; and with it, Blindata – the industry leading Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tool for the window coverings market.

The acquisition of Blindata is a key part of Ascend’s ongoing strategy to expand its digital offering to supply a global audience. With the addition of Blindata’s team and expertise, Ascend is now better positioned to offer its customers a more comprehensive range of both online and offline technology solutions.

“We are excited to welcome Blindata into Ascend. Their expertise in Windows development and hardware integrations are highly complementary to our existing web-first capabilities. We are already seeing that this acquisition is enabling us to better serve our customers across the sectors that we operate within.”

Ian Austin, CEO at Ascend

As part of the acquisition, Blindata’s employees join the Ascend team too. The two groups of highly motivated and talented people will continue to work together as we have done over the last few years since we first started integration work with Blindata in 2017. Now though, as one team rather than partner organisations.

“We are thrilled to be joining forces with Ascend,” said Alistair Ball, Founder of Blindata. “We share a common goal of delivering effective solutions to our customers, and we are excited about future opportunities we’re going to bring to the market.”

Blindata’s customers can expect to continue receiving the same high-quality service and support they have come to expect, with the added benefit of access to Ascend’s broader yet more bespoke range of entirely Internet-based, web-first solutions.

Ascend is a progressive agency, specialising in digital transformation, enabling companies to develop bespoke online software and system integrations to overcome business challenges.

Blindata (Ball Software) is a window blinds software provider, delivering a leading ERP solution for manufacturers and retailers. With a reputation for excellence and a commitment to customer satisfaction, Blindata has established itself since 1997 as a market-leading product.
