Maybe it’s force of habit, since I’m so used to starting every implementation project with a “kick-off meeting” where we set expectations and discuss logistics, but it seems important to do something similar here. So, I’ll share a little about what you can expect to find here and who’ll be involved.
Starting with who’ll be involved, we plan to include a variety of perspectives from Tensoft ‘s team, including myself and Tensoft’s other co-founder, William White, as well as others. In addition, we plan to include entries from occasional guest bloggers.
As a company, what we do is business systems for tech companies. Within that specialization, we focus on execution. Our focus isn’t on helping our customers build a better product or on building a market. Our focus is on how well our customers do as a company and how well we can enable them to track, manage, bill, and get information to make timely, decisive action possible.
Our perspective for this blog comes from our experience working with hundreds of tech companies. What works and what doesn’t? What are best practices for our customers? What are the challenges they face? What are the areas of tech execution – like revenue management, supply chain integration, multi-national operations at an early stage, and the nature of the workforce, for example – that are important as tech companies grow and re-structure?
It also comes from our experience and evolution as a tech vendor ourselves – starting as a systems integrator and Value Added Re-seller, transitioning to a software product company, and then adding hosted ERP to our core offerings. What industry trends influence us, and how do we stay ahead of them? How do we innovate and continue to improve on our fabless semiconductor software, our revenue management software, and our ERP solutions?
Finally, I’d like to encourage you to comment on the posts here – we want to hear from you. And while we’d prefer to have open discussions on the topics here, please contact us directly by clicking on our name at the end of the article, if you’d prefer to send a private email.
