Explaining the value proposition of Coveo is a success story with the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT that educates consumers, government organizations and media, and provides a collaborative forum for food science professionals to gather and learn. IFT’s corporate website (IFT.org) built atop the Sitecore content management system (CMS) platform serves as its primary knowledge hub and online interaction forum. With multiple applications running on the same server, IFT.org site would redirect visitors to a SharePoint search results page. Over the next three years, IFT custom-built several different search pages on IFT.org and the results were not ideal. The challenge was compounded by the fact that SharePoint was unable to search across the various resources where IFT maintained its content.
As a result, IFT began looking for a better search solution for IFT.org and decided to replace SharePoint-based solution with something that would integrate with its Sitecore-based website architecture. IFT selected Coveo for Sitecore, as it proved the only solution to meet all of IFT’s success criteria. Once Coveo for Sitecore was launched, the improvements in website performance were immediately visible. In a nutshell, with Coveo, IFT was able to realize its vision for making IFT. org a truly search-driven website that unified and streamlined access to all of IFT’s diverse knowledge resources without visitors ever leaving the IFT.org website. This included not only a unified global search page, with rich faceted navigation, but also 18 highly specialized search experiences throughout the site.
