Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ: MGIC), a leading provider of application platform, and business and process integration solutions, today announced that Magic Software Israel and Blat-Lapidot will be performing a business application integration for SkyVision, a major supplier of communications services for developing markets.

Magic Software’s iBOLT business integration suite will connect and integrate SkyVision’s Salesforce.com on-demand CRM system that currently is operated by the company as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), to the company’s on-premise SAP Business One ERP system and other internal systems. Through integration the company aims to build and improve their business and organizational processes to enable the real-time bi-directional flow of information through the organization without departmental or system boundaries.

According to Eran Benno, vice president of operations for SkyVision, “The choice of the iBOLT integration suite to synchronize our IT systems will allow us to make great cost and work time savings. Until now, these processes have been performed manually, but with the arrival of iBOLT we can now eliminate the repetitive manual data duplication that’s been taking up much of our staff’s time and in the process drastically reduce the instances of human error affecting our business data.”

“The special edition of Magic Software’s iBOLT for Salesforce.com allows us to offer our customers a code-free integration solution that will enable them to make better use of their installed IT systems, and their Salesforce.com application,” said Maya Komerov, CEO business applications at Blat-Lapidot.

According to Udi Ertel, CEO Magic Software Israel, “We are very pleased to implement this important Salesforce project with Blat-Lapidot for SkyVision. Having only recently launched iBOLT for Salesforce.com, this project win clearly reinforces the need for a cost-effective, fast and out-of-the-box integration solution. Our iBOLT business integration suite ensures that management and staff make more effective business decisions that lead to greater productivity while our code-free approach enables far shorter time-to-market than the use of code-based tools or custom coding.”

iBOLT for Salesforce.com is a special edition of Magic Software’s award-winning business integration suite. iBOLT for Salesforce.com is 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, management can make more informed business decisions and eliminate work duplication and manual data entry arising from the compartmentalization of mission-critical data.

iBOLT has been successfully used in hundreds of integration projects worldwide.

Magic Software will showcase iBOLT for Salesforce.com at a number of Salesforce.com Success-Tours and Tour-de-Force events, as well as at Dreamforce USA, November 2-5, 2008.
