NAMTEK Consulting Services Chooses Magic Software to Create Cloud-based erpwizard 2.0 Solution

uniPaaS Platform Enables Rich Functionality for Software-as-a-Service ERP Application

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (Nasdaq: MGIC), a leading provider of cloud and on-premise application platform and business integration solutions, announced today that Namtek Consulting Services (Namtek) used the uniPaaS platform to develop erpwizard 2.0, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution that helps SMBs run their businesses and lower overall costs of computing. uniPaaS enables the same secure and rich functionality as the on-premise erpwizard, with the flexibility of software-as-a-service (SaaS).  

Companies look for solutions that simplify their ongoing business processes and eliminate high expenses associated with on-premise software systems. Namtek realized the success Magic Software's uniPaaS achieves when bringing applications to the cloud with rich internet application (RIA) functionality. erpwizard version 2.0, offered identically in the cloud and on-premise, boasts fully integrated, rich features and functionality to manage resources and increase profitability, and is available now.

"We are longtime partners of Magic Software, leveraging both uniPaaS and iBOLT. Without its technology, we would not have achieved our success to date with erpwizard," said Pierre Namroud, president of Namtek. "Bringing our solution to the cloud was necessary given ongoing customer demand, and uniPaaS made that transition seamless."

Working with uniPaaS, Namtek redesigned the look and feel of erpwizard in order to make it more user-friendly and Windows compliant. Simplified deployment of erpwizard is an improvement in the solution's latest release, with fewer programs and reduced redundant information. Version 2.0 also gives control to the system administrator to self-manage system behavior with minimal programming skills.

"Companies realize the importance of making on-premise solutions available online, from anywhere and at anytime. erpwizard is a great example of how a complex and mature application can successfully be deployed as SaaS," said Regev Yativ, president and CEO of Magic Software Enterprises Americas. "The benefits for users translate to business success for our partners, and we are dedicated to advancing our technology to improve the features and functionality of such solutions."
