Petzl, Leading Manufacturer of Equipment for Sports and Work at Height, Selects Magic xpi Integration Platform for Business Process Automation

Wednesday, November 5, 2014, Or Yehuda, Israel

Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: MGIC), a global provider of software platforms for enterprise mobilitycloud applications, and business integration, announced today that the Petzl Group, specialized in producing equipment for climbing, mountaineering, caving and work at height, has selected the Magic xpi Integration Platform for business process automation for its international operations.

After deploying Salesforce CRM solution and migrating its back-office applications to SAP, Petzl’s ETL solution no longer met the company's requirements. Petzl required an efficient and agile BPM/SOA solution to manage and execute business processes across its new IT architecture and meet its criteria, including:

  • Certified by Salesforce and SAP, backed up by several references­­­,
  • Capable of managing secure synchronous business processes in a hybrid environment (cloud and on-premise systems),
  • An agile open system capable of automating and streamlining business processes across multiple applications, services and databases,
  • A solution that met its cost (ROI, TCO) and ease of implementation requirements. 

After assessing the solutions of five providers, Petzl chose the Magic xpi Integration Platform. “Magic Software enables us to harmonize exchanges across multiple IT ecosystems. Our business processes go far beyond the confines of the company and the quality of the integration is a crucial factor for improving the performance of the Petzl Group on a day to day basis,” explains Christophe Cayot, Information Systems Director (CIO) at Petzl Group. 

"We are delighted to play an important role in Petzl’s digital transformation and global expansion. Magic xpi’s optimized and certified connectors to leading IT systems, including SAP and Salesforce, along with our advanced in-memory computing architecture make Magic an excellent choice for companies that demand secure, reliable and cost-effective application integration to better serve customers, partners and employees, while increasing operational efficiency and reducing errors," said Eric Choppe, the Managing Director of Magic Software France.
