Coveo Named a KMWorld 2007 Trend-Setter

KMWorld editorial team selects Coveo Audio and Video Search for its flexibility, adoption rate and total cost of ownership


Coveo Solutions Inc., a global provider of secure enterprise search solutions, announced today that its patent-pending Coveo Audio and Video Search (CAVS) technology was selected by editors of KMWorld Magazine as one of the "Trend-Setting Products of 2007." Introduced in February as the sole property of Coveo, CAVS provides businesses with a robust solution for quickly accessing rich media content such as audio and video files as easily as searching text content.

Coveo's Audio and Video Search technology leverages the successful platform of its flagship product Coveo Enterprise Search (CES) to fully support integrated audio-video search. Built on top of Coveo Enterprise Search, Coveo's patent-pending audio-video technology leverages enterprise knowledge to improve search precision, allowing users to quickly and easily retrieve audio and video files in the same process in which they currently find data such as PDF files, emails, etc. The search experience has proven to be unlike anything users have known in the rich media field - enabling proper names, employee names and domain terms to be automatically recognized.

"This recognition by KMWorld magazine's editors is a testament to Coveo's ongoing commitment to deliver innovative search solutions that empower companies to drive business," said Laurent Simoneau, Coveo's chief executive officer. "Our flexible and robust search functionality allows businesses to cost-efficiently access their most hard to find data, audio and video files. It is an honor to be recognized yet again by the industry for our contributions to advancing search technology."

KMWorld editors compiled the list of winners through an exhaustive selection process via discussions with colleagues, analysts, system integrators and a select group of users. Criteria were based on usability, flexibility, adoption rate and total cost of ownership. The technologies awarded represent some of the very best thinking about, and development of, solutions for nearly every vertical industry and every organization, public or private.

"More than 650 individual products were considered by our team of editors, analysts, integrators and users," said Hugh McKellar, KMWorld Editor-in-Chief. "Each and every company whose products were chosen for this year's list of Trend-Setting Products is being acknowledged for its willingness to listen and serve its customers in useful and innovative ways."

Noted by IDC as one of the Top 10 Companies to Watch in Canada, Coveo is driving a market that is considered a gate keeper to unleashing business success. With a business initiative focused on collaboration, Coveo's search technology also delivers proven organizational efficiencies for a knowledge management, risk management, IP protection, compliance and improved customer experience.
