Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ: MGIC), a global provider of cloud and on-premise application platforms and business integration solutions, today announced that Ekro, part of the VanDrie group, the largest veal producer in the world, has made a strategic decision to upgrade and expand its custom-built enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution using Magic Software’s uniPaaS application platform. This move will allow Ekro to better address its global supply-chain expansion and to further optimize its core veal production process.

Production and distribution facilities must accurately manage vast amounts of precise real-time information to let management make the most informed business decisions. Ekro prides itself on combining modern technology with a traditional craft, providing custom-designed services to its clients all over the world. The Ekro ERP system, developed with the uniPaaS solution, effectively manages all production cycles. It covers all business aspects, including planning, the delivery of calves, meat processing, sales, shipments, invoicing and billing. Using Magic Software’s application platform, uniPaaS, Ekro can significantly increase production while keeping its resources and budget under tight control.

“If we weren’t using Magic Software’s uniPaaS solution, we would never have been able to produce the high quantity of top quality veal products that we do now,” said Jan Dirk van Delden, IT Manager of Ekro. “Given the sensitive nature of our production process – such as the time constraints of shipping veal – it is crucial that our ERP system supports our business seamlessly, while taking into account new regulations and market complications.”

“Magic Software’s application development and integration solutions help manufacturers in various industries succeed and excel at all stages of their production chain,” John Verwaaijen, General Manager of Magic Software Benelux, said. “Ekro is a perfect example of how companies can efficiently manage all business processes, make smarter decisions and increase overall operational agility and success.”
