Coveo Wins TSIA TechFUTURES "Audience Favorite" Award at Technology Services World Best Practices

Coveo Determined Winner by Attendee Vote for Insightful Presentation on the Future of Knowledge Management and Access

QUEBEC--(Marketwired - May 15, 2013) -

  • Coveo today announced it is the recipient of the Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) TechFUTURES "Audience Favorite" Award for spring 2013. The company won the honor for its discussion about the future of knowledge and content management on May 8 at the Technology Services World (TSW) 2013 Best Practices conference in Santa Clara.

  • TSW is the technology services industry's premier conference, bringing together the brightest minds and top decision makers in the market space. TechFUTURES was a brand-new component to TSW at the spring 2013 event, and officially kicked off the conference. Through these energized and dynamic presentations, attendees caught a first-hand glimpse into a vision of where services technology is headed within the next three to five years.

  • During her presentation, "The Future of Knowledge Management and Access," Diane Berry, Coveo's senior vice president of marketing and communication, conceptually examined changes among the past, present and future of how individuals interact with information and gain knowledge. Proscribing more personalized and interactive, self-directed ways for customer service and support agents and customers to access information, Berry revealed the first, out-of-the-box application of content personalization within a CRM system, in this case within Salesforce Service Cloud. Berry showed how this application -- built on Coveo's highly advanced indexing and enterprise search platform -- brings information from any system, already related to the user's context, directly into the Salesforce UI, helping the user solve cases or reach other goals more quickly and effectively.

Supporting Quotes:

  • John Ragsdale, vice president of technology and social research for TSIA: "We were thrilled to open up the spring TSW conference with TechFUTURES. The audience was so receptive to these lively and inspirational talks that were delivered in TED-style format, complete with strong visual elements. Coveo was named the Audience Favorite for its impactful discussion on knowledge and content management. We were honored to present them with this award, and proud to have them participate in this great new TechFUTURES event."

  • Diane Berry, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Communication, Coveo: "We are truly honored to receive this award, and understand why the presentation struck such a chord with TSW attendees. Knowledge is the greatest differentiator for all organizations, and at this point in the evolution of how employees and customers interact with information, it is the most difficult asset to generate return on -- simply because information is located in so many different sources, is so varied, and changing so quickly. Unified indexing will be the way information is accessed as companies realize that traditional ways of managing knowledge no longer meet their employees' and customers' needs."
