Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ: MGIC), a global provider of cloud and on-premise enabled application platform and business integration solutions, reported today that it will deploy an integration system based on Magic Software’s iBOLT platform for the Israel-based Shikun & Binui, a leading infrastructure and real estate company, part of the Arison Group. During the first phase, the group’s operational systems will be connected to the Microsoft Dynamics CRM system.

The connection and synchronization of Shikun & Binui’s systems will do away with the need to manually update the same data in different systems, and will also enable the CRM system to carry out real-time retrieval and update of data from the operational systems.

Eran Gutman, CIO of Shikun & Binui, said today, “Using iBOLT as a central integration platform allows us to connect legacy systems that manage large amounts of data with open system environments. In this project we have put great emphasis on streamlining processes and systems and increasing data availability to improve the service that we provide our customers.”

Yoram Aharon, CEO of Magic Software Enterprises Israel, said today that “The success of the Shikun & Binui project proves once again the significant advantage iBOLT has in projects that are characterized by demanding schedules and its ability to reduce the risks in these types of projects.”

Through integration, iBOLT helps companies get more value from their IT investments by automating manual and repetitive workflows and freeing sales teams to focus on selling. 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.
