Data Robotics Selects Tensoft® High Tech ERP System to Support Rapid Growth


Microsoft-based Solution Enables Collaboration with Contract Manufacturers and Distribution Sites

SAN JOSE, CA – November 3, 2008 — Tensoft, a leading end-to-end ERP and supply chain solution provider for the high tech industry, today announced that Data Robotics, a leading manufacturer of data storage devices, has chosen Tensoft Outsourced Manufacturing Management (OMM) software. Tensoft OMM is a Microsoft-based, business management system that automates from the general ledger (GL) through third party logistics (3PL), providing a turnkey solution that fits technology companies’ virtual production and logistics needs.

Data Robotics was seeking a solution to replace their existing QuickBooks software while adding outsourced manufacturing and supply chain capabilities to synchronize with their contract manufacturers and multiple distribution sites. Unlike traditional ERP software designed to manage the shop floor within a plant’s four walls, the Tensoft solution is natively architected to support the unique needs of the outsourced manufacturer. Tensoft OMM streamlines outsourced production and inventory management, and provides online shipping, workflow, and Point of Sale (POS) support – features that are essential for businesses like Data Robotics.

Bob Scarborough, Tensoft CEO, commented on the upcoming project between the two companies. “We’re excited to be working with Data Robotics. This is a great match between our technology and industry expertise and Data Robotics’ needs. We hope to be part of making this company a huge success.”

“Like all growing technology companies, we need an efficient and effective infrastructure for our people to exceed our business goals,” said Data Robotics CEO Geoff Barrall. “After reviewing the competitive landscape, we concluded Tensoft provides the best total solution to meet our requirements.”
