Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ: MGIC), a leading provider of application platforms, and business and process integration solutions, today announced that Magic Software Israel and Blat Lapidot have successfully completed an application integration project for AeroScout, a leading provider of Unified Asset Visibility solutions.

The project was successfully accomplished using the special edition of Magic Software’s iBOLT business integration suite – specially adapted for integrating Salesforce.com. The solution facilitates the bi-directional flow of mission-critical information between the company’s subscription-based Salesforce.com CRM system and their various on-premise IT systems including the Priority ERP system and others.

According to Ran Shalev, chief financial officer of AeroScout, “The major advantage of iBOLT was the ability to quickly and simply connect the business services that we receive from Salesforce.com to the operational systems that we operate on the premises of the company. This will now allow us to implement an unprecedented level of continuity in our company’s business process management.”

Maya Komrov, chief executive officer for Blat-Lapidot believes that: “As with many other business customers, AeroScout also reached the conclusion that they must integrate their various IT systems in order to make better use of their business information. After a number of unsuccessful attempts, it became clear that a more powerful and user-friendly tool was needed for the company’s future requirements. There’s no doubt that iBOLT allowed the project to be completed in a much faster and simpler manner for AeroScout.”

Udi Ertel, chief executive officer for Magic Software Israel added: “The new special edition of iBOLT for Salesforce.com is the latest within our iBOLT portfolio. The scope of this portfolio has enabled Magic Software to offer fast, simple and cost-effective business IT integration for dozens of customers here in Israel.”

Magic Software’s iBOLT business integration suite is straightforward, code-free and can integrate on-demand CRM applications such as Salesforce.com with other enterprise business applications including ERP, Finance, Human Resource Management Systems, Distribution and Data Warehouse Management. By facilitating the sharing of information across the enterprise, iBOLT allows management to make more informed business decisions and eliminate the work duplication and manual data entry that arises from the compartmentalization of mission-critical data.

iBOLT has been successfully used to integrate multiple business applications in hundreds of projects worldwide.
