Coveo prides itself on working with the best in the industry. Today we’d like to highlight the exceptional achievements of our strategic partner Sitecore, for being recognized as a leader for the 8th consecutive year in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management (WCM). They’ve held the highest position for ability to execute for three years running, and have been placed as highest on execution and furthest for vision for a total of six times. Coveo, also recognized as a leader by Gartner in the Magic Quadrant for Insight Engines, is proud to have a strategic alliance with an industry recognized leading WCM platform.
Combining our leading technologies, Coveo and Sitecore have created innovative solutions for large enterprise ventures. The Coveo for Sitecore solution for CMSWire perfectly illustrates what is possible when combining these two very powerful technologies. CMSWire, a B2B publication for digital marketers with an annual readership of 3.5 million, needed a search solution that would easily scale with with their growing site and would support multiple brands, websites and publishing targets. Using the Sitecore Experience Platform, and Coveo for Sitecore, CMSWire is now able to index and recall over 32 thousand articles from 1300 different authors, as well as vastly improving their online user experience. Mobile conversion rates have increased by 125% since the implementation.
By staying highly informed on Sitecore technologies, we continue to ensure we return the most relevant information to Coveo’s community by attending Sitecore training sessions, user groups and conferences and continually staying up to date on releases, as well as enriching the Coveo team with certifications. Earlier this year, Coveo employees, Simon Langevin and Jeff L’Heureux achieved Sitecore MVP status. Having two Sitecore technology experts in house allows the Coveo and Sitecore teams to be aligned at all times. Our MVPs receive early notification of Sitecore releases, roadmaps and announcements which allow Coveo to test and pivot our technology in tandem with Sitecore to ensure all bugs have been ironed out by General Announcement dates.
There are many ways to stay updated on the Coveo and Sitecore partnership. For one, Coveo CMO, Mark Floisand, and Sitecore Product Manager and 2017 Tech MVP, Simon Langevin will be participating in four Sitecore Global Virtual Summit sessions over August and September. The next one is hosted by Simon, “Optimization at Scale: Leveraging AI to Improve Digital Experiences,” on Wednesday, August 30th at 3 pm GMT / 11 am EDT / 8 am PDT. Learn more about the different session topics and dates as well as register here.
You can catch Mark at the Sitecore Global Virtual Summit, as well as at Sitecore Symposium, occurring October 16-19 in Las Vegas.
