Coveo’s Leading AI Platform Announced Cutting-Edge Innovations, Empowers Enterprises to Do More With Less
New Capabilities Fuel Generative Answering, Scalability, Composability, Low-Code/No Code and More
MONTREAL and SAN FRANCISCO, March 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Coveo (TSX:CVO), a leader in AI platforms that transform digital experiences with intelligent search, recommendations, 1:1 personalization, and merchandising, announced more than 10 new features that bring new innovative capabilities to customers as the company continues to revolutionize and democratize the use of applied AI across digital experiences.
New advanced features were added to the Coveo Relevance CloudTM platform across the company’s core lines of business, including Commerce, Service, Website, and Workplace applications. These new features focus on delivering scalability using AI and UI enhancements, composability with headless and agnostic tech capabilities, and citizen development with low code/no code user friendly features to help teams innovate faster.
“At Coveo, we have one core AI platform that benefits from our continued focus on innovation,” said Laurent Simoneau, President, CTO, and Co-Founder at Coveo. “The Coveo Relevance CloudTM platform aims to solve complex problems in delivering optimized digital experiences with unmatched efficiency, scalability, and security so our customers can drive impactful business results and get a faster ROI – all while reducing their total cost of ownership.”
New features announced on the Coveo Relevance CloudTMplatform across Commerce, Service, Website, and Workplace use cases:
Coveo Relevance Generative Answering: The new Coveo Relevance Generative Answering capability combines Large Language Models (LLMs) on top of the leading secure unified indexing capabilities of Coveo’s AI platform. This capability will leverage multiple LLMs, depending on the use case, to deliver the best answer. Coveo Relevance Generative Answering will combine these LLM technologies with Coveo’s powerful enterprise search and relevance technology. Beta will be available for customers with self-service use cases this summer.
Enhanced Smart Snippets: Coveo’s Smart Snippets machine learning model (which leverages LLMs) provides fast, direct answers to users’ searching, often without requiring them to click further. And now, these answers are enhanced with our new hybrid retrieval mode, which achieves better out-of-the-box relevance and recall. Our testing concluded that it returns more answers, and that the answers are of higher quality, with highly relevant answers for natural queries more than doubling (+120%). Available on April 6th.
Hosted Insight Panel: For companies wanting an easy way to build and add AI-powered experiences within their service management or customer relationship management systems, Coveo’s Hosted Insight Panel is the solution. Teams can now easily build, edit, and deploy an AI-powered insight panel from Coveo’s Admin Console – which means less time waiting for IT teams to build and approve. The Hosted Insight Panel is a no code, out-of-the-box capability that uses Coveo Builder to easily spin up AI-powered search experiences. Plus, insight panels can now be expanded into full search mode – giving employees an enhanced overall experience when servicing customers. Currently available for Salesforce users.
Next Gen In-Product Experience (IPX): Coveo’s In-Product Experience enables companies to apply AI-powered search into any of their SaaS or web-based applications to improve findability and discoverability without leaving the application. Now, our Next-Gen IPX enhances the business user experience with easy-to-integrate, editable, and customizable components that leverage the full power of IPX. Available to all customers late April 2023.
Improved Web Connector: Coveo’s Web Connector has been redesigned with business users and composability in mind. The enhanced Web Connector simplifies the indexing of sites for business users, making it easier and more intuitive to add AI-powered search to your internal or external sites. No more platform lock-in, as the redesigned connector helps companies who are moving to headless and composable architectures. General availability late April.
Enhanced Metadata Insights: The new and improved Metadata Insights capability not only gives admins and business users insights into the reliability of metadata based on the relevancy and most common metadata values present from the source content, but also allows metadata to be added to the index and fields to be mapped directly within the admin interface. This impacts how end users can search, filter, or sort on the new metadata identified. Push API is also now supported, which helps companies with complex product catalogs, such as ecommerce or retail providers. Optimize performance and improve the health of your data with Metadata Insights.
Data Health Panel: For implementation teams building intuitive, AI-powered experiences, the Data Health Panel allows you to deploy more rapidly and with greater quality. The data health dashboards act as a trouble-shooting mechanism, enabling builders to easily view, understand, and fix any validation errors on data events being sent to Coveo. This improves the overall quality of the implementation, data being leveraged, and accuracy and effectiveness of Coveo’s machine learning models and reporting.
Relevance Inspector: Providing fast, accurate, and relevant digital experiences can help build end user trust. And now with the new Relevance Inspector, admins and business teams can ensure the utmost quality of search results. Teams can now easily troubleshoot search queries to improve the overall relevance and quality of search results. Query pipelines, business rules, and rankings can be inspected more deeply across all search interfaces including headless, API, and Atomic. Available today in closed beta and will be generally available by summer.
Web Accessibility Compliance for Coveo Atomic UI Library: Building with accessibility in mind has always been a priority at Coveo. And now, the Coveo Atomic UI library, our modern and composable UI framework, has also met the conformance requirements of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), an external accessibility consulting company, as detailed in our Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) report.
Innovations from the Coveo Merchandising Hub:
We continue to strengthen and improve our overall commerce search and product discovery capabilities and have expanded our innovations to help business teams balance end user needs with company objectives. These are demonstrated through the following innovations that enhance the Coveo Merchandising Hub:
- New Product Listing – Visual Editor: The new Product Listings Manager functionality in the Merchandising Hub lets users manage content and the ranking of the product listings pages with an easy and intuitive editor.
- Expanded Recommendations Strategy: Business users can alter the selection criteria for popularity and recently added products to align with their brand needs. Popularity can now be assessed based on views, revenue, conversions, or a blend to represent the most important user trends. Recently added products can be configured to reflect the last 7, 28, or 90 days to closely reflect a brand’s new release cadence.
- Recommendations and Badging – Custom Schemas: Extends the ways developers and merchandisers can interact. Business teams can now control the on-site design of recommendations and badges in detail without developer reinvolvement.
- Variant Enriched Product Recommendations: Improve product discoverability and conversions by displaying variant information directly in the recommendation carousel. From color swatches and size availability to add to basket CTAs, help shoppers find the right product quickly, improve the quality of click-throughs, and boost conversions.
