Plasser American


Plasser American is a leading provider of heavy equipment used across many industries. They provide services for the Plasser and Theurer machinery distributed and utilized in the USA for the North American railroad transit systems.

The Challenge:

Plasser American’s IT department is looking to migrate and move from SharePoint using both Jira and Confluence for tracking and managing project documentation, charters, tasks, and general project layouts/templates.

The Solution:

Ascend Integrated worked with Plasser in migrating all their current instances of Jira, Confluence, and Bitbucket currently installed onto a PostgreSQL 9.6 database and updated each of the instances successfully. Following performance enhancements and updates, Ascend Integrated worked with Plasser in defining project templates using the template/blueprint capabilities Confluence provides. Ascend developed templates and blueprints using Macros, Custom Coding, and standard template requirements provided by Plasser.


Plasser American is now working on the latest versions of Jira, Confluence, and Bitbucket migrated from their MySQL databases to the new PostgreSQL 9.6 versions. These updates to the templates have improved efficiency in the development and updating of project documentation and project tracking across the organization. Ascend Integrated also provided training services for Confluence and Jira. Ascend continues to engage with Plasser American in setting up, configuring, and updating the Jira and Confluence instances.
