Tensoft® to Host Its Second Annual FSM User Conference on the Monterey Peninsula

Post-Conference "Kicker" to Offer Hands-On FSM Training in Santa Clara, CA

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 11, 2007 -- Tensoft, a leading end-to-end ERP developer and service provider for technology companies, announced plans to host its second annual FSM International User Conference May 6-8, 2007 in beautiful Pacific Grove, California. The event is a forum for users of Tensoft's flagship product, Fabless Semiconductor Management (FSM), and promises to provide customers with opportunities for discussions with Tensoft developers and designers, as well as to share best practices with other FSM customers.

The popular customers-only event is drawing Tensoft FSM customers from Asia, Europe and Canada, as well as from throughout the U.S. The event will feature sessions on topics ranging from best practices for fabless ERP and supply chain management, to optimizing operational efficiency, to an overview of the FSM enhancements that have been added, based on feedback from last year's User Conference. And, to accommodate customers who are traveling long distances, an optional two-day hands-on FSM training seminar will follow the User Conference. Guided by in-house Tensoft experts, this post-conference event will train users with in-depth details and hands-on practice.

"This is a huge event for both Tensoft and its customers," said Tensoft CEO Bob Scarborough. "Customers not only learn from the intensive product sessions, but also from hearing about other customers' experiences and innovations. At last year's event, we garnered valuable customer feedback and product ideas, many of which are being incorporated in the FSM product today. This yearly Conference -- as well as our company philosophy of partnering with our customers for mutual success -- helps us to keep up on the pulse of the fabless industry and our customers' evolving needs."

Customers who attended last year's User Conference are vocal about the benefits they received. "It's very beneficial for us to get involved with Tensoft's user community," said Brian Yates of Ramtron International. "It's easy for us to get entrenched in 'This is the way we've always done something.' The ability to come away from the office, meet other FSM users and see what they're doing is truly invaluable."

"As a Tensoft FSM customer, we find it valuable to participate in user group forums," said Cindy Pence of Global Locate. "Getting together, we're able to see that we're all in the fabless industry, but each company is unique in some way. The FSM User Conference allows us to see the issues that other firms have, and work as a group to see if there's something that can be incorporated to solve the needs of the whole."
