Nice to meet you! We are Ascenda.
Ascenda solutions make loyalty simple for financial institutions globally. Previously, these companies had to endure complex patchworks of third-party systems, mediocre user experiences, and 18-month implementation projects to deploy a competitive rewards program. We turn things upside down with loyalty solutions rooted in beautiful design, exceptional customer value, and rapid implementation.
The TransferConnect team builds, maintains, and operates the world's largest points exchange network, connecting banks across 40 markets to over 50 major loyalty programs around the world. This is a highly-trafficked, highly reliable service facilitating the transfer of millions of points between banks and loyalty programs around the world.
