Tensoft™ Is Awarded Microsoft's "Terrific Teamwork" Award

Partnership With Manufacturing Resource Partners and Moyo Group Generates a Winning Customer Solution

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 3, 2007 -- Tensoft, a leading Microsoft Gold Certified developer for Microsoft Dynamics GP™ (formerly Great Plains) technology customers, announced today that it was the recipient of the prestigious Terrific Teamwork Award by Microsoft's EPG (Enterprise Partner Group), which recognizes partners that have teamed together with Microsoft or other partners to provide their customers with solutions to solve complex business issues. The award was presented to Tensoft at Microsoft's Quarterly Partner Briefing, held in Northern California in late December.

For the award-winning project, Tensoft proposed a hosted solution that would provide the Microsoft Dynamics GP Manufacturing Suite and the Tensoft Fabless Semiconductor Management (FSM) solution for a fabless semiconductor and chip manufacturing client.

Tensoft assembled a winning partner team that possessed complementary skills and resources. The company called on Manufacturing Resource Partners to prove the capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics GP and then to augment team resources. "Tensoft's project management skills were invaluable on this project," said Dan Abernathy, Managing Director of Manufacturing Resource Partners. "This project entailed a complex environment, in multiple locations, under heavy time constraints, yet the unified team was able to meet and even exceed expectations."

Because of a very aggressive project "go live" date, Tensoft also brought in their close partner, Moyo Group, to supplement the implementation project team in two client locations. "We highly value our partnership with Tensoft. Their knowledge of their target market, expert account leadership, and technical know-how, make them a perfect partner for Dynamics GP VARs like us," said Mike Hatam, President, Application Services for Moyo Group. "I have great respect for Tensoft's ability to make sure all parties collaborate together and win, and to make the sure the client gets exceptional value from the overall partnership. I look forward to many future opportunities to work with the Tensoft team."

"We appreciate Microsoft's recognition of Tensoft and this strong solution partnership," said Bob Scarborough, CEO of Tensoft. "The unified project team brought a complex project live within four months, accomplishing the project's key business objectives and exceeding the customer's most ambitious expectations."
