Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ: MGIC), a provider of application platforms andbusiness and process integration solutions, today announced that it has signed contracts with two major IT companies in Eastern Europe. The projects include the supply of the uniPaaS application platform and the iBOLT business and process integration suite offerings.

The first deal is a partnership agreement between Czech Republic system integrator DSB and Magic Software for the supply of Magic Software’s iBOLT business and process integration suite to be distributed throughout the Czech territory. DSB has already signed a deal to install the iBOLT for SAP R/3 suite at a major confectionary distributor with operations throughout Eastern Europe. 

According to Jan Kovarik, Managing Director of DSB, “The installation of the iBOLT for SAP R/3 suite with such a large customer represents a new break in the market that we anticipate will lead to new deals for the iBOLT product line throughout the Czech Republic and beyond. We’ve already hosted two seminars for Czech customers showing Magic Software’s business integration line in action and they can’t wait for us to start distributing.” 

The second contract, worth approximately $250,000, is for upgraded uniPaaS licences for AlphaSoft of Romania, a former Magic Software provider developing and marketing ERP systems for hundreds of customers in the small to medium Enterprise market. Magic Software’s new uniPaaS application platform enables customers and ISVs to cost-effectively build Full Client, RIA, mobile and SaaS applications that can be deployed on-time and on-budget. 

“We decided to upgrade our operations using Magic Software because their new uniPaaS application platform presented us with technological and business advantages that were highly suited to our specific needs. Building ERP systems efficiently, with total focus on the business objectives of the customer and being able to deploy them with fewer mistakes is a major competitive advantage,” said Pavel Cristian Gabriel, R&D Manager for Alfa Software S.A. 

“The successes of our application platform and business integration solutions are bucking the trends in Eastern Europe among challenging market conditions,” said Udi Ertel, Vice President, Magic Global Services (MGS), Distribution and Operations for Magic Software. “We’re now seeing more and more customers coming to us for additional upgrades and custom projects having realized that they can cut margins and improve operational efficiency in the process of upgrading their technological IT capabilities. These contracts are proof of the growing demand for a more efficient and effective application platform in investment-shy business climates.”
