Open Text’s FirstClass is Finally iPhone-Friendly

Remember Open Text Social Media? FirstClass is a communication and collaboration platform that was used as the underlying engine in that product. If you use FirstClass for your e-mail, calendaring, etc., we have good news for you.

FirstClass (brought to Open Text via the Centrinity acquisition) went mobile.

Available from the App Store for the iPhone and iPod Touch, the long-awaited app promises “a broad range of rich features” when accessing messaging and collaboration services. Secure login can be accomplished from the above devices to any FirstClass server.

From there, users can get to their FirstClass Desktop and manage e-mail, bookmarks and content from shared collaborative spaces. It wouldn’t be the iPhone-friendly deal, if the replay of video and audio files and sharing images wasn’t included.

Those using FirstClass Unified Communications can play voicemail messages stored as MP3s on their mobile devices. iPhone users can also access their FirstClass calendars and contacts via the ActiveSync support built in to FirstClass Sync Services.

The FirstClass Mobile App includes support for multiple languages, including US English, Canadian English, UK English, Swedish, Finnish, Danish, Norwegian, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and Japanese.
