QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2012) -

  • Coveo announced today that it was named the winner of a Bronze Stevie® Award in the "Best New Product or Service of the Year - Software - New" category in The 9th Annual International Business Awards.

  • The International Business Awards are the world's premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide are eligible to submit nominations -- public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. The 2012 IBAs received entries from more than 50 nations and territories. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for "crowned," the awards will be presented to winners at a gala awards banquet at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Seoul, South Korea on October 15th. 

  • More than 3,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others. 

  • Coveo introduced Coveo 7.0 to ensure that every employee and every customer can obtain the right insight, at the right time, regardless of when or where they need it. Contextually relevant insight helps customers understand the next best action, agents to understand how to best solve customer issues, engineers to understand what will work best in a new product, and sales to know how best to move a prospective customer along the buying continuum. Overall, this enables the organization to act in a more agile, responsive manner, with the customer always at the center of operations.

  • Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 300 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process this year.
