Kannon sells more FirstClass than just about anyone because we work in a consultative way, taking the time to understand the goals of your organization, and if FirstClass can help you get there, to show you how. If you agree that FirstClass will become an indispensable part of your communication and collaboration strategy, we'll get you the best pricing and help you buy your own system or set you up on one of our hosted servers.
Kannon has worked with hundreds of organizations to be sure their FirstClass system is correctly sized and configured. We can come on site wherever you are to install and configure your system, redesign a system that has changed over the years, or migrate to a new platform. We also offer a remote implementation assistance package that can improve your implementation without the associated cost of on-site service.
Customization services range from branded login screens and graphically-rich desktops and conferences, to custom workflow forms and RAD applications. The exciting new FirstClass Campus by Kannon Communications combines all these elements to make your online community a vibrant, bustling and attractive place that your users look forward to visiting every day.
Considering everything we do, itâ€™s training that makes the biggest difference to our customers and their organizations. Kannon was the very first FirstClass Certified Training Center in 1999, and since then we have provided the best -- always individualized -- training available, at our offices in Maine, at locations near you, and at your site, for system administrators and end-users alike. If you are new toFirstClass, taking over a FirstClass server someone else set up, or if you are upgrading to the latest version of FirstClass, you need training from Kannon Communications ASAP. Check out our training calendar.Â
Kannon offers a full range of outsourced FirstClass Solutions for organizations as small as a few people to large global companies, from fully hosted environments to remote admin services. If your organization can take advantage of the amazing power of a fully realized FirstClass System but can't afford to â€” or would rather not â€” manage your own system, we can help.
Â "I have been using First Class since 1996, when I encountered it in use among various school groups in Cambridge Massachusetts. At that time I set up a FirstClass group with our association (the Association of Independent Schools in New England), which allowed many small schools to have their first e-mail accounts and begin to collaborate.
Â Â Â Â Ever since, I have found that the schools which I headed that had FirstClass were more effective in teacher collaboration than others that used different systems. With the enhancements I have seen to FC, I think you have the finest tools available for creating conversation among teachers and students, and for enhancing the educational process."
