The Company’s Evolution and Coming of Age in Silicon Valley
The company’s initial focus was on custom development of web-based applications for technology companies in the Silicon Valley area. At the request of several customers, Tensoft began to re-sell, support and host an out-of-the-box accounting and financial software package designed for the midmarket. By 2000, Tensoft was faced with a decision: what will better serve our customers long-term, custom or commercial applications? They chose the latter, and that decision has guided the company’s philosophy ever since.
Today, Tensoft remains focused on serving the specialized needs of midmarket technology companies with innovative, end-to-end business management solutions for the semiconductor, high tech and software/SaaS industries. Our customers don’t need to spend time re-inventing the wheel – Tensoft delivers just what they need, without the expense and risk of customization.
Whether your company is a pre-revenue start-up or a public enterprise, Tensoft can provide the critical business management system functionality that you need, so that you can concentrate on your core competencies.
