According to Arita Mattsoff, vice president marketing of Magic Software, "We are looking forward to exhibiting our award-winning iBOLT for Salesforce.com at Dreamforce Europe, salesforce.com's user and developer conference. We are confident that users of on-demand CRM solutions, such as Salesforce, will find our iBOLT business integration suite beneficial for their cross-organizational data synchronization, in the same way that our worldwide customers and SAP Business One partners have benefited from iBOLT when integrating on-premises ERP applications with other on-premises or on-demand business applications. We invite Dreamforce Europe visitors to take the opportunity and meet our experts to get a first hand review of our integration offering."
Eyal Shahar, president of the California based Online Trading Academy, and an established iBOLT customer said, "Without iBOLT for Salesforce.com we would have had to invest a lot of time and resources in the implementation and migration of our users to new and unfamiliar systems. Using iBOLT we were able to quickly and easily integrate the data and business processes between our on-premises operations and finance systems and our on-demand Salesforce applications. We are extremely happy with the results. Productivity is up and our staff can today work quicker and make better decisions based upon a fuller view of our corporate data."
