Nexia TS Launches Ascend – an Integrated Cloud-Based Accounting, Business Automation and A.I. Analytics Solution

July 2017


Singapore, 27 July 2017 – Nexia TS, winner of the Innovation Award (Large Practice Category) conferred under the Singapore Accountancy Awards 2016 organised by the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA), today announced the launch of Ascend, an integrated cloud-based accounting, business automation and A.I. analytics solution platform to respond to its target clientele’s changing business needs.


Bolstered with the firm’s technical and consulting expertise, Ascend works with leading software partners such as Xero, MYOB, MyFinB and Ready Software to leverage on their technological capabilities and their strategic partnerships with leading companies such as IBM Watson, to deliver the best of both worlds to its clients.



The potential for disruptive change from automation and analytics will accelerate even more as technology and artificial intelligence become more mainstream, thereby dramatically impacting conventional ways of doing business. In view of this, Nexia TS’s latest innovation drive aims to meet its clients’ evolving needs, which brought forth the introduction of an integrated accounting and analytics solution platform to equip businesses in their drive for cost-efficiency and better financial decision making.


“Ascend has a big focus on its cloud-based accounting system, scalability and better financial decision making based on analytics with natural language interface, amongst many other forward-looking features. Through this integrated service, we are confident that it will equip our clients with the necessary technological advantage to reap significant business improvements.”

Chin Chee Choon, Ascend Practice Leader, Nexia TS


“Today’s business world is increasingly connected and more susceptible to technology disruptions given the rate of change. To stay ahead of the curve, many businesses are placing a lot more emphasis on innovation and developing new digital thinking across the enterprise. Ascend builds on our existing suite of business solutions to empower our clients to achieve this emerging business objective of working with technological partners, which is key to our strategy of not reinventing what is available but adding innovative and value-added elements to our services. It also showcases our firm’s dedication to continuously improve our service offering to serve our clients better – one of the many fruits of active listening and thinking ahead for our clients’ best interests. It will also be a step forward for our team to work in a different platform.

Henry Tan, Managing Director, Nexia TS
