Fernando Lopes, CEO for Ábaco Consultores said, “We looked for a vendor with a proven SAP integration capability. Magic Software impressed us as a Gold SAP partner that had won numerous SAP quality and innovation awards and worldwide SAP integration projects. They have a dedicated iBOLT for SAP special edition with built-in certified connectors and an intuitive, easy to use integration methodology. We have already closed our first deal using the iBOLT integration platform and we look forward to extending our cooperation with Magic Software in the integration arena as well as to their uniPaaS application platform business.”

“As a leading SAP specialist, a company of Ábaco’s calibre was a natural partner for us,” said Eric Choppe, General Manager for Southern Europe. “We are very excited about this partnership and the new projects they have lined up and Ábaco’s business model is well suited to our own. Together I believe we can extend our business throughout these territories.”

iBOLT for SAP is a code-free business and process integration suite that makes the data within SAP applications available to other business applications within an enterprise, and vice versa.

iBOLT creates real-time workflows triggered by actions within SAP or other software systems to ensure that employees and management always see an accurate and full business picture. With an integrated view of company data, management and employees can make more informed business decisions, get more value from each business interaction and achieve faster time to market for their products and services.

Magic Software has more than 300 SAP partners worldwide using iBOLT as their integration solution, and hundreds of iBOLT projects successfully implemented for customers such as adidas Canada, Anritsu, Bank of Cyprus UK, CB Medical, Clinical Financial Services, CBIA, Electra, Entertainment Training, Finanz Informatik, LORD Corporation, MintWave, OTOR, Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center, Prestwick House, San Francisco Courts, Sheba Medical Center, W3Com and Warren Board.

iBOLT has won SAP’s quality and  innovation awards for 3 consecutive years in a row, from 2006 to 2008. iBOLT is SAP xAPPS certified and has also received certification in Japan.
