Coveo for Salesforce Launches on Salesforce.com's AppExchange, the World's Leading Business Apps Marketplace

Salesforce.com Customers Can Now Easily Find Critical Knowledge From Social and Enterprise Systems to Be Better Informed and Transform Every Customer Interaction; Businesses Tap Into the Power of Social and Mobile Cloud Technologies to Transform the Way They Connect With Customers, Partners and Employees

QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Mar 18, 2013) - Coveo announced it has launched Coveo for Salesforce on salesforce.com's AppExchange, empowering businesses to connect with customers, partners and employees in entirely new ways. Coveo for Salesforce radically enhances search and knowledge access by bringing data related to the user's work from virtually any system into the Salesforce Service Cloud. Coveo for Salesforce automatically "reads" case information and presents relevant knowledge and experts who can help solve the case, improving case intelligence and customer service performance and transforming the customer experience.

Reductions in case resolution time, increased first contact resolution and higher levels of customer and agent satisfaction are key factors in transforming customer support operations from cost centers to strong revenue contributors. Customer service agents often waste valuable time searching different systems for critical customer and product information. With Coveo for Salesforce, agents can quickly and easily find the most relevant customer information every time they view a case in Salesforce, regardless of where the information resides.

Leveraging the power of Coveo's enterprise-grade, Unified Indexing and Insight Platform, Coveo for Salesforce quickly indexes any Salesforce instance and provides advanced "out-of-the-box" search with just a few clicks. Users and administrators can easily add content to the index, either from diverse cloud systems such as Gmail and Salesforce, or from on-premise systems. The application can then search across these various systems to bring together key information within Salesforce, that is readily assembled and contextualized for the user to take action with the customer or case.

Coveo for Salesforce is currently available on the AppExchange at www.appexchange.com.
