Magic Calls for Implementation of BPM to Gain Customer Retention

GigaWorld, Prague (7th June 2005) Magic Software Enterprises (Nasdaq: MGIC), a leading provider of state-of-the-art business integration and development technology, warned today that organisations delaying integration because of perceived exorbitant expense, may find the true cost is the loss of their customers.

Avigdor Luttinger, Head of Business Integration for Magic Software comments, “Closer integration, combined with the implementation of Business Process Management (BPM), can make a huge impact on business levels of customer service. Organisations that have already invested in integration and BPM find themselves with increased customer loyalty and in a stronger position to lure customers away from their competitors.”

BPM is a technology that allows organisations to dispense with complex coding and replace it with intelligent software that business managers can easily and quickly manipulate. Overlaying the integrated infrastructure, BPM allows organisations to be more flexible to market changes and customer demands because it provides greater visibility over the entire operation.

Luttinger continues, “Since it’s less costly to retain customers than to find new ones, customer loyalty is a critical part of any business. Within highly competitive industries it is those organisations that have complete control over their operational processes through BPM and are able to deliver the right goods at the right time, that are maximizing the rewards. Organisations not yet in this position will miss out and lose customers if they don’t act soon.”

Magic has first-hand experience of such companies capitalizing on the benefits of integration and BPM through the extensive use of Magic’s iBOLT Business Integration Suite in customer facing industries. Listed recently in the Software Developer Times 100 as a “Business process and workflow designer that eases common integration troubles”, iBOLT provides strong integration capability at a reasonable price.

Using iBOLT, Magic’s BPM platform, Uniq plc, a leading pan-European premium chilled convenience food manufacturer, took just four months to implement a solution that enables it to send data from six heterogeneous applications into a new planning and forecasting system, which then processes and analyses the data and returns it to Uniq’s main operational system, in order to plan the production volumes within their factories. The speed and accuracy of the system enables Uniq to adapt easily to changing customer demands.

Menzies World Cargo, Heathrow’s largest independent cargo handler, implemented iBOLT, Magic’s BPM system that eliminated human error by automatically prioritizing work according to the various services levels demanded by different airline customers and provided alerts to notify staff when tasks were overdue. Within three months service levels rose to in excess of 99 percent and errors were reduced by 80 percent.

Luttinger concludes, “If speeding up your process, achieving higher productivity at lower cost and increasing market share is your aim, don’t put off the inevitable. Get integrated now!”
