Coveo Relevance Platform

Coveo is well-suited for larger companies that have a huge amount of files sitting its databases. For a company of more than 100K employees, Coveo does a nice job of sifting through massive piles of data. For example, if I wanted to find something about 401K matches, I could type that into the Coveo search bar on our portal and it would give me all the files in our system about investing in 401K in our company. The results don't take too long to come up as well.

Very good for smaller stores, very easy to start and expand. Swimwear is a good use case, people want to know what they look like in swimwear. Also it works best on phones so it's good if customers shop on mobile. Not good if you are not on Shopify, it won't work. Also maybe not good for very high-end luxury brands, users who upload photos use their camera phones and not beautiful like models.

Pros

Coveo Relevance Platform

  • Searching a large set of documents is very fast
  • Support for faceted searching
  • Supports synonyms through an admin panel or via an external file
  • Out-of-box controls for rendering search, results, and faceting.
  • Customization allows for more flexible implementations
  • .NET hooks exist allowing code to be injected into its indexing process. This allows for more advanced taxonomy indexing (for example inspecting semantic information during indexing)
  • Items published via Sitecore are automatically indexed (within a minute or two of publish time)
  • Out-of-box support for ranking files attached to pages (PDFs, DOCs, etc) based on search term relevancy
  • Supports ranking certain file types above others (giving PDFs more weight than DOCs, etc)
  • Out-of-box support for crawling web pages from multiple sources. Each source can be configured with different crawl frequencies.
  • Coveo 7 introduces a JavaScript search interface in conjunction with a new REST API that you can use as an alternative to the out-of-the-box Coveo .NET search interfaces. This is also customizable and even supports templating engines like mustache and underscore.
  • They have a StackOverflow-like forum where you can get assistance from the community: https://answers.coveo.com/ .

Cons

Coveo Relevance Platform

  • UI changes were cumbersome and timely to make changes to based on business requirements and user feedback. We were not able to optimize in the UI due to the constraints.
  • Analytics in the version we had were very poor. UI was built in Silverlight with no exportable version to be able to perform further analysis of data. Many product suggestions around additional metrics needed.
  • We struggled around data ranking and relevance due to the amount of unstructured data that we were indexing. This caused user adoption issues. This service and guidance was something that we were never really able to get from Coveo with my time using the product. The relevance controls were very simplistic and did not give us much control.

  • Takes a couple days to add products. Would be better if it were instant.
  • Only on Shopify. I told a friend who sells on Woo Commerce and it wouldn't work.

We still have many clients which have custom search implementations supported by Coveo which crawl their Sitecore instances. From that perspective, I'm very likely to use it again. One of the main drawbacks I have heard is that Coveo is relatively expensive. The size of your project budget may have a greater influence on your decision to use Coveo if the custom features are not must-haves for your organization

We heard of 3D Look but needs 3D cameras, too expensive so didn't really try. True Fit is what many bigger companies use but it's expensive and doesn't work well

Return on Investment

Coveo Relevance Platform

  • Quick to find things in a massive database when needed.
  • Results need to be more concise - sometimes we spend more time looking for the right file than if we were to just search amongst our own networks instead.
  • Coveo is not always the most useful but does its job when general information is needed.

  • Very big impact on session time
  • Helps with getting store visitors. But I use the virtual fitting room in marketing
  • Any new business is good since it's free
