SAN JOSE, CA – March 9, 2009 — Tensoft, a leading end-to-end ERP and supply chain solution provider for the semiconductor industry, announced its fourth annual FSM International User Conference, to be held May 17-19, 2009 in California’s Silicon Valley. The exclusive customers-only event is a forum and idea exchange for users of Tensoft’s Fabless Semiconductor Management (FSM) product. Attendees have the opportunity to learn from and brainstorm with Tensoft developers, designers and industry experts, while networking and sharing best practices with other FSM customers from throughout the world.
Featured sessions include improving cost-effectiveness and profitability, planning and costing, vendor integration as well as synching operations and finance to perfect corporate performance before a public offering. Popular sessions from past conferences will also be repeated, including an overview of recently added FSM enhancements and a roadmap session. Customers will not only learn from the intensive product sessions and discussions about FSM’s future direction, they also will learn about solutions and innovations from other customers.
“The FSM User Conference is the high point on Tensoft’s calendar,” said Tensoft CEO Bob Scarborough. “It’s gratifying to interact directly with our customers and know that they come back year after year because this is such a cost-effective way for them to expand product knowledge, fine-tune operations and exchange ideas with developers and like-minded users.
Attendees at last year’s FSM International User Conference are enthusiastic as they cite the benefits received. “I traveled from Taiwan last year to attend the annual Tensoft FSM User Conference in San Francisco,” said Vincent Tu, Director of Operations, Fortemedia International, Ltd. “By attending this event, I was able to learn about new product features that may be helpful, and I was also able to provide feedback that will be used in future product releases. This made the conference worthwhile to me. I would recommended this event to other fabless semiconductor executives.”
Hassan Hashemi, Director of Operations for Newport Media adds, “Last year’s conference was good. It was to the point and informative. Time permitting, we intend to attend this year’s workshop as well.”
