OR YEHUDA, Israel, June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: MGIC), a global provider of
software platforms for enterprise mobility, cloud applications, and business
integration, announced today that Boston Medical Center (BMC) has implemented
new mobile facility and work order management apps using the Magic End-to-End
Enterprise Mobility Solution.
BMC's new iOS and Android applications increase the efficiency of hospital
technicians who repair equipment across the large campus and enable the
immediate rerouting of employees to respond critical malfunctions as they
happen. The apps also enable hospital staff to initiate and monitor service
calls and check on status of incidents at any time. Using native device
capabilities, employees can scan hospital room barcodes to report a problem or
to learn what work needs to be performed in that location. Photos of assets
can be added to the record and work orders can be closed on location. With
Magic Software's offline mode, mobile apps can run in areas without mobile
coverage and then synchronize when connections are re-established.
"We have long used Magic Software's technology as the basis for our desk-top
based hospital-wide facilities management system. By simply extending it to
mobile, not only have we made our facility management team happier and more
efficient with the new smart ways of working on site, we have also eliminated
the huge amount of paperwork previously required by hundreds of technicians
completing thousands of work orders a day. That's huge savings in terms of
both time and money," said Bob Biggio, Vice President of Facilities and
Support Services for Boston Medical Center. "By being able to easily re-use
our existing business logic and add mobile-specific capabilities, Magic's
enterprise mobility solution enabled us to develop and deploy our mobile apps
quickly and successfully, much faster and with lower risk than with any
"Boston Medical Center is clearly achieving great results with its mobile
apps. However, it's important to realize that they didn't get there overnight.
They started with a small app and after that success, they built more apps
incorporating advanced functionalities," said Udi Ertel, President, Software
Division at Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. "We are pleased that Magic
enterprise mobility solution, including our recently added Mobile Device
Management (MDM) offering, has been a key enabler of these innovative
applications and their related business benefits."
