e-Spirit AG - Unlock your content

A successful product strategy: CMS + Best-of-Breed

FirstSpirit enables an easy creation, management and publishing of content within a wide variety of channels (Inter-, Intra- and Extranet, mobile channels, PDF, e-mail newsletter, portals, DTP, technical documentation, online shops). Thereby, the solution is designed as a content-turntable: as an integrated editorial platform it help companies and editors to unite content as well as applications coming from an increasing number of different sources and to publish it in the various channels.

By its product-strategy e-Spirit is following a best-of-breed approach – it focuses on the ability to integrate as well as usability.  This means that e-Spirit, by its CMS FirstSpirit, concentrates wholeheartedly on the provision of Core Content-Management functionalities and ensures that the system may be extended by arbitrary applications and can easily be integrated in existing system environments. Thus, the customer has a free choice regarding bordering application areas and can use the solutions which best meet his requirements – integrated in FirstSpirit. That way, the various corporate portals (SAP NetWeaver, IBM WebSphere, Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and Liferay) and arbitrary data bases, document management-, MAM-, PIM- and E-Commerce-Systems or Social-Media- solutions can be integrated into the CMS just as easily as external web-applications. This includes, for example, translation services, image databases and picture-processing software, web-analysis-tools, Wikis or SEO (Search Engine Optimization)-services, which are available as cloud-services and may be used directly within the CMS by means of the FirstSpirit AppCenter. Thereby, an integrated content-platform is created, in which all required applications can be used centrally in the CMS with its user-friendly editing interface. This makes the work of online-editors much easier, and is leading to an optimization of the internal processes and thus to  a growth in productivity and cost savings.

Partnership: Together we are successful

e-Spirit banks on strong partner-networks. comspace has been a member of this network since 2011 as an official „Trained Partner“. The agency established within a short period of time a powerful team with FirstSpirit-know-how, which has extensive knowledge of bordering systems, for example regarding the field of e-commerce, and can thus competently implement integration-projects with FirstSpirit as the central content-platform. The FirstSpirit-solution was successfully used in connection with the creation and development of the company website for Rittal, the worldwide leading system provider for future-oriented cabinet- and enclosure-solutions.
