Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ: MGIC), a global provider of mobile, cloud, and on-premise application platforms and business integration solutions, today announced that the New Reclamation Group (Pty) Ltd. (Reclam) has concluded a successful engagement with Magix Integration (Pty) Ltd., Magic Software’s South African branch, to develop and implement a solution to integrate a custom-built application with its new, centralized implementation of the SAP® Business One application. The solution implements Magic Software’s iBOLT integration platform, which enables simple and reliable integration of disparate systems and databases.
Reclam, a South African producer of recycled ferrous and nonferrous metal products, as well as recycled paper, cardboard, glass and plastic products will be using iBOLT to integrate its newly installed system, running SAP Business One with a customized Yard Management System (YMS) to enable each of its 70 branches to accurately record the details of materials brought into the company and their processing through to resale. This information is used by Reclam to keep accurate logs of all its transactions on a daily basis, and enables tracking of any material to its original point of entry into the company. The iBOLT-based solution has fully automated the system, eliminating the need for human intervention and eradicating human error.
“Reclam management sought to improve the visibility of information and control across the Group, as well as to drive out inefficiencies and inaccuracies due to disparate, non-standardized management information systems,” said Steven Friedman, Chief Information Officer at Reclam. “An integrated solution that spans the entire Group now provides management with the accurate and timely information it needs to make the right business decisions. The integration between the Yard Management System and SAP Business One was, therefore, a critical element of the project.”
“In this project, iBOLT provided an excellent solution for Reclam, and clearly demonstrated its value as a comprehensive integration platform for business applications and data management systems,” said Hedley Hurwitz, Managing Director of Magix Integration (Pty) Ltd., Magic Software’s South African branch. “We believe that the success of this project will enhance Magic Software’s reputation in South Africa, and will lead to many more opportunities to strengthen our presence in the region.”
