It contains a comprehensive library of adapters, wizards, services and methods, based upon 25 years of Magic Software’s development experience. It allows users to create both simple and complex business processes by dragging, dropping and configuring desired components rather than working through pages of hard code.

iBOLT integrates and synchronizes Salesforce CRM data with other on-demand and on-premise applications in the enterprise. It enables organizations to view an accurate and real-time picture of their corporate information and eliminates the need to manually update on-premise systems when changes occur in Salesforce CRM.
