BOSTON, May 30, 2018 – e-Spirit Inc., maker of the FirstSpirit Digital Experience Platform, today introduced the FirstSpirit Starter Package for Salesforce Commerce Cloud which helps e-commerce companies create content-rich online stores with lightning speed thanks to FirstSpirit’s CMS, AI-driven personalization and omnichannel marketing capabilities, as well as its certified Salesforce Commerce Cloud integration. e-Spirit customer TSI Holdings (TSI), Japan’s largest online retailer based in Tokyo which manages a portfolio of 34+ apparel brands, launched two e-commerce websites in a record six weeks using the FirstSpirit Starter Package.
