Tensoft Fabless Semiconductor Customer Adesto Technologies Chosen as a Finalist for 2014 Microsoft Dynamics Customer Excellence Award

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Mar 3, 2014) - MICROSOFT CONVERGENCE -- Tensoft (http://www.tensoft.com), a leading end-to-end supply chain and ERP solution provider for the semiconductor industry, announced today that an implementation of its Fabless Semiconductor Management (FSM) solution integrated with Microsoft Dynamics enabled its customer, Adesto Technologies, to become a finalist in the prestigious Microsoft Dynamics Customer Excellence Awards competition.

In October of 2012 Adesto acquired the Serial Flash memory group from Atmel, instantly transforming the company into one shipping hundreds of millions of units a year to its Tier 1 customers. With neither an existing ERP system nor a supply chain solution on board, Adesto contracted with Tensoft to quickly ramp up. By implementing its cloud-based solution for the semiconductor industry, Tensoft helped Adesto to accomplish this ambitious goal.

"With the acquisition, we immediately needed to put in place integrated systems to support finance, manufacturing and sales operations for thousands of part numbers and a worldwide customer base. We needed to scale rapidly and implement the right business software infrastructure," said Ron Shelton, Adesto's Chief Financial Officer. "Working together with Tensoft's implementation team, we were able to implement and build a scalable system based on Tensoft's cloud-based solution to support a growing business that shipped more than 100 million units during 2013."

"The Adesto story is truly an amazing illustration of what can be accomplished by a talented and dedicated team of professionals. Our software is designed to support the needs of this industry -- and the Tensoft team brings years of industry experience to help. We were able to combine our capabilities with the Adesto team's vision and dedication," said Tensoft President and CEO Bob Scarborough. "The amount of change and scaling the Adesto team accomplished with such a lean organization more than qualifies the company for this recognition."
