Tensoft Selected as a Microsoft Business Solutions Industry Theater Presenter at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 5, 2005 -- Microsoft Corp. has chosen Tensoft, Inc. to present at its upcoming Worldwide Partner Conference, to be held in Minneapolis, MN, from July 7 - 10. Tensoft is one of thirty-five Independent Solutions Vendors (ISVs) from ten different countries who will participate in a new Worldwide Partner Conference event called "Microsoft Business Solutions Industry Theater."

This new event will spotlight vertical solution specialists who, like Tensoft, have developed vertical industry solutions that extend Microsoft Business Solutions' products with industry-specific functionality. Microsoft has been promoting their ISV strategy as one of two key components in their overall strategy in the business applications market segment, and will be sponsoring several other vertical industry initiatives at the Worldwide Partner Conference this year.

Tensoft will be presenting a session on "Tensoft's Fabless Semiconductor Management (FSM) for Microsoft-Great Plains," a manufacturing and supply chain solution for the fabless semiconductor industry. The fabless semiconductor supply chain is notoriously complex, and has been the target of numerous "point solutions" and planning tools over the last five years. Tensoft is an active member of the Fabless Semiconductor Association, and the only vendor who has successfully delivered a fully integrated fabless semiconductor ERP solution affordable enough for start-ups.

President and CEO Bob Scarborough, who has more than 20 years of experience in business software design, says: "We're pleased that Microsoft has chosen to recognize and support its vertical industry partners -- it's great to see Microsoft developing partner programs that align with our long-term strategy. Our fabless semiconductor customers have very unique, complex business requirements. For a relatively small niche market like this, it makes sense to leave the product development to vertical specialists like Tensoft." With the opportunity to present at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, Tensoft looks forward to creating a partner channel for Tensoft FSM.
