FirstSpirit 5: Positive frontend and backend user experience
The new major release FirstSpirit 5 optimizes the two central factors for the success of a website: user experience and content. Highly topical, relevant content optimally presented, ensures a positive user experience and therefore for regularly returning website visitors and better conversion rates. For in-house users, i.e. the employees in the editing, PR, marketing and functional departments, the benefits of positive user experience is efficient content management processes. "The new release is the result of consistent continued development of e-Spirit's product philosophy," says Jörn Bodemann, CEO of e-Spirit. "With the integration strength, efficiency optimization and absolute usability of FirstSpirit 5 we are setting new standards."
WebEdit 5: Maximum usability for fast and easy content maintenance
FirstSpirit 5 gets a completely redeveloped WebClient with improved user concept. The new WebEdit 5 editing environment more specifically addresses the requirements and needs of occasional editors, who want to edit content quickly and above all easily, without any great effort. Complex functions and structures have been removed from the user interface of the new WebClient; it is now clearer and can therefore be used more intuitively. Time-saving functions have been added, such as drag-and-drop support.
JavaClient: All editing tools under one interface
The FirstSpirit JavaClient is the central editing cockpit, which provides all functions and required tools under a central interface. Here professional editors can easily implement complex tasks, merge content from all kinds of different source systems and deploy it in any channels and projects required. At CeBIT 2012, e-Spirit will be showing new application integrations for the FirstSpirit AppCenter, with which any (web) applications required, can be directly integrated into the CMS editing interface with their familiar look and functionality. In this way, e.g. online image databases, Google Maps/Earth/Translate or office programs can be used in the JavaClient, which significantly simplifies the editing processes.
UX-Bridge: Connecting content and user experience
With FirstSpirit 5, e-Spirit provides new infrastructure for highly dynamic web pages: UX-Bridge ensures a positive user experience in the frontend. It enables live updates of content directly on the web page and acts as an integration platform for the live website, e.g. for integrating social media solutions, for content targeting or user generated content.
Content integration platform: Portal integration for Sharepoint 2010, Liferay & Co.
