SAN JOSE, CA – August 19, 2010 — Tensoft, a leading end-to-end ERP and supply chain solution provider for the semiconductor, software and high tech industries, announced today the tenth anniversary of its Tensoft Fabless Semiconductor Management (FSM) product, which debuted on August 19, 2000. Since its first release, Tensoft FSM has delivered its unique industry-specific functionality to semiconductor companies operating across the globe.
Since 2000, Tensoft FSM’s User Community has grown exponentially, creating the need for an annual User Conference, which is a “must attend” event for customers to network, share best practices and interface directly with developers. Tensoft consultants have supported customers in North and South America, Europe and Asia, both on-site and remotely. Today, Tensoft FSM has expanded and improved significantly as the result of nine major releases, which were based on a consensus of customer feedback. While Tensoft FSM has always been a web-based solution, the last two years have seen a steady increase in the number of Tensoft customers who have chosen to deploy entirely in the cloud.
“I first met Tensoft in 2001, and was enlisted as a member of their Advisory Committee soon after. The four other committee members were Tensoft FSM customers,” said Ron Jones, N-Able Group International CEO. “At that time, Tensoft was re-designing the original version of the Tensoft FSM product that had been in use at VxTel, making it into a commercial software product that could be delivered out-of-the-box to other fabless semiconductor companies. It was great to be a part of that early process, especially seeing how the product has evolved over the last decade. Congratulations to Tensoft for their success with Tensoft FSM.”
“Our vision has always been to deliver a fully integrated solution that provides a single source of truth for our semiconductor customers. Tensoft FSM customers will attest to fact that we’re doing just that,” said Tensoft CEO Bob Scarborough. “Over the course of ten years, Tensoft FSM has replaced just about every competing product on the market today, as well as many products that no longer exist. When most of our customers first contact us, they’re either dealing with multiple silos of information which are in conflict, or they’re bogged down with a heavily customized, outdated product or in-house solution and are suffering from the consequences of having a “User Community” of only one company. It’s been a real pleasure to work with our Tensoft FSM customers and to see the successful transformations that have resulted. In fact, many of our customers consider Tensoft FSM to be a vital key to their success.”
