Bryan Ruby, CMS, e-Spirit

September's running of CMS-Connected saw the first appearance of eSpirit to the show. We went a bit farther and asked Bryan Ruby if he wouldn't mind spending some time with their CMS product, FirstSpirit; and then discussing his experience in the Spotlight sequence. We were very pleased when Bryan started in on a very positive and glowing review of this German based software company making inroads into the North American market.

Watch the full FirstSpirit CMS review below:

During the review Bryan describes some very promising features for this system which is relatively new to most of us in Canada/USA. Here are some memorable quotes from the segment:

Regarding the Web Client's inline editing features

"This is probably the slickest inline editing systems that I've seen"

"This is a content management system for the user"

Regarding the FirstSpirit Java Client

"This seems to be geared more towards the power user and media integration"

"Inline Integration" - New web term coined and trademarked by B. Ruby. Watch for it in a hashtag near you. #InlineIntegration #TongueInCheek
