SAN JOSE, CA – August 24, 2010 — Tensoft, a leading end-to-end ERP and supply chain solution provider for the semiconductor, software and high tech industries, announced today a strategic partnership with McGladrey, one of the nation’s leading providers of assurance, tax and consulting services. The agreement was facilitated through Microsoft’s Partner Channel Builder Program. As a result of the partnership, RSM McGladrey will promote and deliver the Tensoft Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) Suite to its customers and prospective customers, with a focus on technology businesses.
The partnership is designed to address the needs of technology companies, where regulatory compliance issues present a significant challenge, and complex revenue, billing and contract management needs are ubiquitous. Software publishers, SaaS and hosting providers, game publishers selling through retailers, on-line content subscription providers, and OEMs with embedded software are just a few of the companies that fit this description. The Tensoft Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) Suite brings together the specific revenue, billing and contract management functionality that software and other technology companies require, and McGladrey brings both the strength of their Technology Services practice and the depth of their assurance, tax and consulting services expertise.
“At McGladrey, we understand that technology companies face some of the most stringent regulatory requirements of any industry today, and often grow – and change – so quickly that it can be challenging to set up adequate business processes to address these,” said Stan Mork, managing director – technology services for RSM McGladrey. “By partnering with Tensoft, RSM McGladrey can deliver a scalable solution which meets the specific revenue, billing and contract management needs of these businesses, and can then provide the value-added consulting services that will provide significant strategic advantage.”
“We’re pleased to partner with Tensoft because it leverages our skills in compliance, international operations, and IT management,” said Steve Ems, managing director – technology services for RSM McGladrey. “We look forward to a successful working relationship.”
“McGladrey is an ideal Tensoft partner – a company with both a strong vertical market focus and with additional consulting services that provide highly strategic value to the technology sector,” said Tensoft President and CEO Bob Scarborough. “McGladrey’s extensive experience providing tax advice and consulting services to businesses will ensure that their Tensoft RCM customers will be well-positioned to meet both the business process and regulatory compliance changes that inevitably occur in the technology sector.”
