First of all you need to be a user and an administrator in Ascend. Then you need to contact ReachMee, for example by e-mailing , With a written request to integrate your Ascend and ReachMee accounts. They will help you getting started. After ReachMee support has helped you getting started, you need to create project templates in Ascend in order to use the Ascend tools through ReachMee. If you need help to build a good competency profile, you can book a meeting with one of our consultants.
The integration with ReachMee supports the use of
- Seamless multi-step, competency profile-based project templates.

A project template for ReachMee supports following assessment types (Jan 2022):

How to create a template in Ascend
1. Create a template in Ascend
Log into Ascend and click on ”Project template”
Select which kind of tools you want to match the candidate to in the template. If you need a competency match score + tests you choose the ”Competency based job fit”. The rest of this guide focuses mainly on this option. You can create templates with the other options as well, they will then contain only the test tools. Then press ”Next”.
2. Create a template with ”Competency based job fit”
After you´ve chosen the competency based job fit in the step above, and pressed next, you get the following options. Choose your tests, and press next. All these options are possible to use in the template. We warmly recommend Matrigma adaptive version + MAP for most selection processes.
When you choose your competency profile, you can either create a new profile or a previously created profile.
2.1 Choose a profile that you’ve created previously
If you wish to use a competency profile that you’ve created previously (maybe you have saved this profile or just used in in another project), you click Custom profiles and choose your profile from the list.
2.2 Create a new competency profile
If you instead wish to create a new competency profile you press the button, which will allow you to continue into the competency wizard tool.
3. Name your project template + options
The project name is the name that you will see in the ReachMee integration. We suggest that you choose a name that clearly states the content of the template.
In this step you will also need to choose some options. Recommended options are preselected, but some of them can be changed if you wish to by clicking the check boxes.
4. Check your options in the summary
You will be shown a summary of your template. If you wish to make changes, click on Previous. Otherwise click on Create template.
