BNP Real Estate Uses Magic xpa Application Platform to Enhance and Mobilize
its Key Sales Application

OR YEHUDA, Israel, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ: MGIC), a global provider of software
platforms for enterprise mobility, cloud applications, and business
integration, announced today that BNPRealEstate, a subsidiary of BNPParibas
operating in all areas of the real-estate business, has successfully upgraded
and mobilized its key eBroker sales application using the Magicxpa
Application Platform. The new iPad application allows all information about
the company's real-estate assets to be used by BNPRealEstate's 400
salespeople in the field.
Over the years, BNPRealEstate's eBroker application had become outdated; it
lacked desired features, performed poorly, and was difficult to use.
BNPRealEstate used Magic xpa to improve eBroker's user interface and range
of functions using RIA (Rich Internet Application) technology, while retaining
the core business rules of the original application. The project was completed
and rolled out in just six months.
In addition to desktop access, salespeople can now access the application on
their iPads while in the field. The application fully complies with the
BNPParibasGroup's security policy since connections are made using a highly
secure RSA authentication token, data transits via 3G network or by Wi-Fi, and
the IS Department implemented a new mobile device infrastructure.
"The enhanced eBroker application is very user friendly and its new features
enable our salespeople to respond to customers immediately with relevant
information displayed in an easily understood visual format. For example, our
salespeople can now bring up a list of offers with their geographical
locations displayed on a map or produce a PowerPoint presentation including a
complete description of each offer and send it directly to the customer by
email," explains Eric François, Chief Information Officer at BNP Real Estate.
"The application has been overwhelmingly endorsed by our salespeople, to the
extent that we have had to increase the number of user licences," adds
"Magic is proud of our close working relationships with our customers. By
understanding BNP Real Estate's specific needs and mobility requirements, we
were able to guide them use to leverage Magic xpa's RIA technology and built
in mobile deployment options to rapidly roll out iPad and desktop apps while
adhering to the company's enterprise-grade performance and security
requirements," said Eric Choppe, the Managing Director of Magic France.
