Visa Cal Leverages the Power of uniPaaS RIA to Develop a Rich Internet Application in Record Fast Time
“Visa Cal develops many systems using Magic Software’s products due to their ease of use, reliability, and low maintenance requirements.
I am certain that in the future, we will continue to develop advanced applications using Magic Software’s excellent, user-friendly tools”.
Doron Bonim, Magic Team Leader, Visa Cal IT Department
Visa Cal, Israel’s leading credit card company, handles the issuing and clearing of the major credit card brands, Visa, MasterCard, and Diners, providing a wide range of services and payment solutions to approximately 1.3 million credit cards and over 50000 businesses throughout Israel.
To retain its position as market leader, Visa Cal constantly looks for solutions that will strengthen and improve its extensive sales operations. This commitment led to the decision to develop a system that would provide online information to all sales representatives in the field across Israel. The system was required to provide sales representatives full access via their laptops to all relevant information about their prospective customers, including banks, private enterprises, and loyalty program members.
The Magic Team within the Visa Cal IT department was awarded the project of developing the new database system, as its plan for a six‐month development life cycle was the fastest of any proposal. Other leading considerations in the decision to award the project were the company’s satisfaction with the robustness and quality of the Magic Software systems already in use in Visa Cal’s data management systems (some for over 17 years), the simple, user‐friendly development interface, and the substantial savings to be made in human and financial resources. All 80 Magic Software systems currently deployed in the company are maintained by a team of just four Magic Software experts. The Magic Team at Visa Cal developed the online sales database system using Magic Software’s uniPaaS RIA platform for the development, running, and maintenance of rich internet applications and data systems. uniPaaS enables development of solutions designed for a wide variety of running environments, such as server/client, Web, mobile, Cloud, SOA, and Rich Internet Applications (RIA). The entire project, from design phase to final deployment, was completed in record fast time. It took less than two months to get the system fully operational and available for the sales representatives in the field, who were quick to begin using it as part of their standard work routine.
By choosing uniPaaS RIA, Visa Cal obtained the following important benefits:
- Advanced development capabilities.
- Rapid deployment, expending minimal resources, and achieving a high level of cost‐efficiency.
- Low‐risk development cycle.
- Highly flexible development environment.
- Easy maintenance procedures.
