Coveo and Avanade Partner to Make Digital Experiences More Intelligent and Relevant for Customers and Employees

Coveo Self-Learning Intelligent Search Solutions Now Available through Avanade Managed Services

Coveo, a recognized leader in intelligent search, and Avanade, the leading digital innovator on the Microsoft platform, today announced a global partnership at Avanade’s TechSummit 2016. The partnership brings together Coveo’s industry-leading Intelligent Search expertise, platform, and applications with Avanade’s Digital capabilities. The partnership further extends and enables enterprises to deliver the most innovative, intelligent digital experiences to customers and employees with agility and scale.

“At Avanade, we see that the most successful enterprises provide digitally empowered experiences and interactions with both its customers and its employees,” said Florin Rotar, Avanade digital platforms and offerings lead. “Coveo’s Intelligent Search platform and applications make our digital offerings even smarter, and will allow our clients to rapidly transform and enable relevant touch points with customers by injecting additional intelligence into every encounter.”

Intelligent search helps to deliver more engaging digital experiences by providing the most relevant information, every time, everywhere. With Coveo Intelligent Search Applications, Avanade can easily unify and personalize information from across multiple sources - including Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, or ERP systems - to improve digital experiences; drive a higher number of website conversions; increase the occurrence of customer-self-service; and ensure more proficient employees.

“Avanade and Coveo each bring great experience and leadership within the Microsoft ecosystem, from Sitecore to Dynamics CRM to Lithium and beyond,” says Coveo CEO Louis Tetu. “Avanade delivers immense value to an enterprise’s digital marketing efforts, CRM and digital workplaces with multiple leading technologies. Our work with them will focus on making every digital experience more intelligent and relevant.”

Built on the Sitecore Experience Platform, Avanade’s cloud-based Digital Marketing Managed Service now includes Coveo Intelligent Search apps for Sitecore, enabling Sitecore customers to deliver the most relevant, contextual digital customer experiences. This partnership enables Avanade to use the Coveo for Sitecore edition best suited to each customer.
