e-Spirit Releases FirstSpirit 5.2

Sep 03, 2015

e-Spirit Inc., a supplier of content management solutions, announced the release of version 5.2 of the FirstSpirit Content Management System with new capabilities and enhancements designed to support the recently announced Corporate Content Cloud initiative. With the new version of FirstSpirit, companies will be well on their way to achieving digital transformation with less time and less overall effort.

With the latest release, e-Spirit is now offering a series of completed reference implementations and other enhancements for existing integrations with leading e-commerce platforms including Demandware, IBM WebSphere Commerce, and hybris. Integrations with portals such as Liferay and JBoss have also been similarly enhanced.

FirstSpirit 5.2 features a number of enhancements to help agencies, designers and in-house teams create re-usable templates in less time. The enhancements include a new template creation wizard and tools for rapidly importing and re-using HTML code blocks.

A common technique for optimizing content is A/B testing. The latest release of FirstSpirit offers enhanced support for this methodology by allowing different content variants to be produced directly within the FirstSpirit editing environment. Once the preferred layout and content approach has been identified, it can now be immediately published.

FirstSpirit 5.2 offers enhancements designed to speed the process of adapting content for use on multiple language websites. From within the FirstSpirit environment, editors can now use online translation services for quick comparisons between the source and target languages to help speed the translation process.
