Coveo Enterprise Search 6.0 enables businesses to improve productivity, extend the life of their IT assets and mitigate legal risks

Coveo, a leading provider of information access and search solutions for the enterprise, today announced the general availability of Coveo Enterprise Search (CES) 6.0, an information access platform that enables businesses to generate a higher return on their assets and mitigate risk. Coveo CES 6.0 allows users to securely access information they need within seconds, when it's needed, without having to know where the document was previously stored.

Coveo offers businesses a powerful value proposition by enabling secure just-in-time access, from a laptop or a smartphone, to the relevant corporate data. With Coveo CES 6.0 a consulting team can meet a tight business proposal deadline, a customer help desk representative can solve a pressing issue, a sales representative can close a deal at an off-site location, clients can easily search and access resources directly through the customer portal, a legal team can accelerate early case assessments and a top executive can measure business units' performance. Coveo CES 6.0 enables better decision-making and improves overall business performance and productivity.

"In these turbulent economic times, business managers are required more than ever to do more with less and work with existing resources to deliver better results," said Laurent Simoneau, President and CEO of Coveo "Coveo CES 6.0 is a user-friendly, powerful solution enabling them to swiftly navigate through the avalanche of corporate content and knowledge to drive tangible business benefits and produce a quick return on investment."

The new Coveo CES 6.0 platform provides a unique combination of enterprise-grade scalability, deep connectivity and security to data repositories and significant performance improvements. With its unique customer-driven approach and risk free proof-of-concept offer, Coveo sets itself apart from other vendors by delivering solutions that are easy to deploy and cost effective with a rapid payback.

"Corporate information never resides in just one place; it is scattered throughout enterprise systems as well as in email, blogs and wikis. To unleash the value of enterprise content, enterprises must unify access to all these repositories from a single, contextual user interface," said Susan Feldman, Research VP, Search and Discovery Technologies, IDC. "Our research shows that scattered information is one of the top concerns of CIO's today. The implications from lack of comprehensive, timely information can no longer be ignored."

"Coveo CES 6.0 made an already indispensable search and information access program even better. Initial searches are now five times faster than before and refinements of searches with contextual facets are ten times faster," said Trent Parkhill, Director IT, Vice President, Haley & Aldrich. "I keep looking at new offerings in the search market and I still don't see anyone who comes close to Coveo in being able to deliver a powerful, highly customizable, quick to implement enterprise search platform."


Some of Coveo Enterprise Search 6.0's key features include:

- Improved scalability with up to 50 million documents per server, faster query performance and powerful contextual faceted search, which enables companies to use less hardware than any other vendor to index the same amount of corporate content.
