Software developer Coveo released a free, entry-level enterprise content management search solution.
The new solution, called Coveo Expresso Beta, offers enterprise search functions for up to 50 users, 1 million desktop files or email items and 100,000 Intranet documents. The program is available as a free download. Users can access the program via PC or laptop through Enterprise Desktop Search, or via BlackBerry using mobile access.
"We want to re-educate businesses about the ease and simplicity with which enterprise search should work, as our customers can attest," said Coveo president and chief executive Laurent Simoneau.
The free download features several new enterprise content management features. Its cross-enterprise email search works for 50 email accounts, including PST files and attachments, for up to 1 million items. An Outlook sidebar allows functions like conversation folding, as well as the ability to search indexed content without leaving Outlook. And a desktop floating search bar allows users to conduct guided searches without leaving their current program.
Coveo Solutions is an information search and enterprise search developer. It is based in Quebec, and was founded in 2004. In addition to search-powered solutions for businesses, the company offers an optical-recognition PDF search engine.
