Karta Ascend is the formula we use to consistently deliver well-designed solutions on time and on budget—and how we avoid the pitfalls and pain you may have experienced elsewhere.

Read on to learn about Karta Ascend and what you can expect from our team.

A time-tested process you can count on

Our rigorous service delivery model has been honed over 20 years. It ensures that your business requirements are understood, that your team is consulted at every step in the process, and that we complete your project as promised and without surprises.


We gain a complete understanding of your present state,  requirements, business processes and taxonomy. We also record your desired results. We wrap up this stage with a customized demo of the platform so that you can envision the end result and make better-informed decisions as we customize your IRM software.


In a working session with your stakeholders, we define needs of user groups, project roles and accountability. We also leverage our experience to recommend refinement to existing process flows to optimize business processes and maximize the use of the platform.


This stage stretches from final planning details to the build, testing by your team, and launch. Then we get your whole team up to speed by equipping them with a customized online learning center. All of this is done together with you, to ensure the solution is a success from day one.

Your IRM solution is only as good as the people who build it for you. Here’s how the Karta team shines:

Seasoned experts

There’s no substitute for knowledge and years of experience, so we have intentionally built a team of IRM heavyweights. Every Karta  team member is an IRM solution specialist with years of practical and professional experience. All of our people attend ongoing, in-depth product training and are certified to the highest possible level. This means your project will be led, managed and executed by extremely capable, competent people.

100% IRM focused

Whereas many solution providers offer numerous types of software for a variety of applications, at Karta we are IRM/GRC specialists. It’s what we do, it’s all we do, and we’ve been at it for years. We ask you the right questions, offer you tried-and-true guidance, and use a proven process to develop a great solution.


Powerful partners

We have invaluable relationships with our software platform partners Archer and  Onspring and the NERC specialists at AESI, which means quick access to the information we need to deliver for you.

Lazer-focused software expertise means smarter solutions

At Karta, we focus on only two world-class IRM platforms: Archer and Onspring. Both are highly configurable and code-free, which is critical for your team to easily customize and modify the platform when you want to.

Why specialize?

By specializing in just two pieces of software—not the long list that most companies try to manage—we know them better than anyone else and can build smarter solutions for you as a result.

What’s more, our entire team re-certifies at the highest level possible every year to ensure your IRM solution employs the latest features and functionality.

The big difference

With Karta, you can rest assured knowing that your IRM solution uses the software to the very best of its ability. We take the time to ask you the right questions and guide you to the right solution.

Which solution is right for you? As part of our process, we recommend which platform is the best fit with your requirements, business maturity and current and future states.


Clarity from start to finish

We work hard to ensure you have complete clarity from start to finish. From clear deliverables to frequent reporting, you’ll always know what’s happened and what’s coming next.

We genuinely care

We’re a team of down to earth people who genuinely care about the success of your solution. But don’t take our word for it—read our case studies and the unsolicited testimonials shared on our website.
