Tensing Becomes First European Solution Partner of Safe Software


Tensing is pleased to announce that it was recently named a Solution Partner by Safe Software. This step means that Tensing will be recommended by Safe Software for FME users who need advice or support from professionals in the development of data-integration solutions. Tensing GIS Consultancy is the first new partner outside of North America that has qualified as a Safe Software Solution Partner.  

"Recognition as an official FME Solution Provider is a testament to the knowledge and experience available to professionals in our organization in terms of ETL processes, spatial data, and the use of FME," said Tensing CEO Martin Knook. "We are as passionate and knowledgeable in the area of FME's capabilities as Safe Software itself, and we support customers by making use of the full data-integration platform that FME offers."

Tensing has years of experience with the use of FME from the various data-conversion and data-integration projects implemented by Tensing professionals. Within migration projects, Tensing supports customers as they transition to the Esri ArcGIS platform, during which FME is frequently utilized. In the past decade, Tensing has supported various utilities, airports and government agencies and assisted in the successful conversion and integration of their data sources.

"Over the years, Tensing’s experience has shown that organizations increasingly need services and support around data interoperability, specifically the combination of spatial and non-spatial data sources," said Dave Laurier, Business Unit Director of Tensing GIS Consulting. "In recent years we have invested in a strong team of FME professionals, all of them passionate professionals in this specialty. We now choose to make this extensive knowledge and experience available as a service."

FME is by far the best platform for ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) for data interoperability of spatial and non-spatial data sources.

“Tensing is the first European member of our new Solution Partner program. We look forward to seeing the many ways they apply FME to solve their clients’ data interoperability challenges,” said Sonia Hobbs, Director, Partner Programs, Safe Software.
