FirstClass Core Server
Icon-FirstClassCore.pngFirstClass is a feature-rich, cost effective, and easy-to-use communication and information platform server. It integrates personal email and productivity applications, group collaboration, Internet Services, Voice Services, and Directory Synchronization Services with other communications products, mobile services, application development, and database extensions tools. Its server-centric architecture creates an inherently secure environment that is reliable and highly scalable. It is an integrated set of applications designed to securely connect people and resources via any Internet-accessible device. The extent to which the power of FirstClass is used on a given site is limited only by your vision of communication.
