Tensoft Customer Amalfi Semiconductor Goes Live on Microsoft Dynamics in Six Weeks

Visit Website View Our Posts

Amalfi Semiconductor pioneered high-performance radio frequency (RF) semiconductors for the cellular handset market based on standard, low-cost complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology. Experiencing rapid growth overseas and looking to the future with an eye to becoming a publicly traded company, Amalfi wanted to improve financial controls. It had outgrown Intuit QuickBooks and experienced these challenges: 

•             Inability to match actual physical inventory receipts with invoicing, which sometimes resulted in vendors accidentally overbilling Amalfi.

•             A daily-snapshot inventory-reporting system that lacked support for process inventory costing.

•             Difficulty deriving booking, billings, and backlog information.

•             Period closings that were extremely time-consuming and cumbersome.

•             Inability to manage finances or consolidations for international operations.

•             No systematic way to prescribe purchase order controls, thresholds, or approvals.

•             Lack of self-service management reporting.

 After considering SAP OnDemand and Oracle 11i and reviewing vendors that attended the Global Semiconductor Alliance 2010 event, Amalfi selected Microsoft Dynamics GP and Tensoft Fabless Semiconductor Manufacturing, an end-to-end solution that specifically addresses the unique needs of this industry.   Amalfi turned to Tensoft as a turnkey provider with the industry knowledge to help them plan for the future, and the implementation expertise to make them meet aggressive go-live goals.  

The company has already saved US$75,000 in duplicate vendor invoicing and realized significant efficiencies.  With the business management software in place, Amalfi has a solution that takes advantage of purchasing controls to support regulatory compliance. In addition, executives, operations employees, and finance managers now have the insight and control they need to help the company reach its growth goals. Joe Whitty, Controller at Amalfi Semiconductor, says, “With Microsoft Dynamics GP, powerful reporting and analytics tools, and productivity applications from a single software company, we can grow our sales and operations based on real insights into the actual needs of customers. If we had it to do all over again, we’d make the same choice.”
