"Relaunch of a corporate Intranet portal using FIRSTspirit as CMS"

What do you like best?

FIRSTspirit allowed us from a corporate perspective to provide content and design guidelines from a central instance. With having many different sub-companies and locations, FS was the perfect fit. We could assign the different companies their own areas within FS to create their own content, with having them the corporate content inherited.

Furthermore, the content editor for the users is super user friendly and easily understandable.

What do you dislike?

The price point of this product is quiet high. Also, at the time we implemented the product, worldwide distribution and availability of the software provider was not given. However, this was not a main criteria in that very project.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Finding a CMS that easily integrates into an SAP webportal and allowing content creation on different levels.

FS allowed us all of it and we even realized that the webeditor is so user friendly, that we decided to even add more levels for content creation and added more web authors (e.g., every department created and now maintains their own Intranet site)

"Powerful tool for building complex. rich websites"

What do you like best?

A comprehensive and powerful tool for building rich, complex websites. FirstSpirit works with your own designs and HTML, rather than forcing you to choose from limited templates. It has rich support for multiple authors, workflows and permissions. The developer API gives impressive access to the underlying data structures. Page generation is fast even on large sites. The web-based editorial environment is very impressive.

What do you dislike?

Support for enterprise-level environments such as JBoss Portal is limited and requires 3rd-party support. The main development environment, the Java-based Site Architect, is quite resource-intensive, especially when using it with the live previews enabled.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't think of FirstSpirit as a CMS like WordPress - it's more of a powerful tool for you to create your own specific CMS.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Building a content-rich public facing website and integrating it with custom-built JBoss Portal portlet applications for both public site and back-end users. Using the CMS to build the framework in which the portlets sit, alongside hundreds of pages of custom content, allows for a seamless experience for users.
