CY 2016 was a year of tremendous growth, innovation, and recognition as revenues soar 80% for intelligent search leader SAN MATEO, CA, and QUEBEC, QC--(Marketwired - February 14, 2017) - Coveo, a recognized leader in AI-powered search and predictive analytics, has confirmed yet another exceptional quarter and calendar year ended December 31, 2016. In 2016, Coveo grew GAAP revenues by more than 80% as compared to CY2015. As consumer landscape changes, people continue to demand better online experiences from the brands they engage with. Whether they are partners, customers or employees, all constituents have come to expect relevant and contextual information, the moment they need it. This is changing the way companies are doing business, greatly benefiting Coveo. As a result, Coveo experienced massive team growth in 2016, adding 100 employees, to reach a total of 300 employees worldwide. This doubles the number of hires completed in 2015. As part of its expansion, Coveo opened a fourth international office in the heart of the Innovation District in Montreal. The Montreal division aims to fill 50 new, high-value jobs in the next eighteen months; 25 of which have already been filled. Coveo's impressive growth expanded far beyond headcount. The company continued to soar in the high-tech vertical and grew its presence in adjacent industries. Coveo successfully anticipated the shift in consumer behavior and, through the power of its rich analytics and machine learning capabilities, succeeded in improving the user experience for its clients' customers, partners and employees alike--while reducing the effort required to do so. This resulted in significant business impact, including tripling case deflection for its intelligent customer support customers, improving 'no results' queries by 75%, improving the time on site by 50%, decreasing visitor abandonment rates and improving employee productivity. Coveo was recognized for its industry leadership in 2016; the company was once again listed among the 100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management, by KM World, was named to the 2016 CRM Watchlist for the sixth consecutive year, and won a number of awards for its intelligent customer support and self-service solutions as well as earning Employer of the Year, from The Stevie® Awards. Reflecting on the company's rapid growth, Coveo CEO Louis Tetu said, "As demand increases for intelligence everywhere and we continue to scale our operations, it is critical that we keep our amazing culture and work ethic. The passion that we share, the collaboration that we cultivate, and the integrity with which we conduct business both internally and towards the marketplace, along with the great diversity of our employees, are the sources of our innovation and success with customers. This we must never forget." Coveo inked a strategic partnership with Avanade, the leading innovator on the Microsoft platform, in June 2016. The partnership further extends and enables enterprises to deliver the most innovative, intelligent digital experiences to customers and employees with agility and scale. With Coveo Intelligent Search Applications, Avanade can easily unify and personalize information from across multiple sources - including Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, or ERP systems - to improve digital experiences; drive a higher number of website conversions; increase the occurrence of customer self-service; and ensure more proficient employees. Highlights of this important partnership include both a partnership in selling new clients as well as the inclusion of Coveo in certain Avanade managed services offerings: Coveo now has more than 40 leading system integrator (SI) partners in the Digital CX area and more than a dozen leading partners in the Salesforce ecosystem. According to Coveo CMO Mark Floisand, "Just as Coveo technology enables the entire IT ecosystem, so Coveo's strategy is to enable the broader SI and Alliance ecosystem, enterprise developers and independent software vendors (ISVs) to use its technology to inject intelligent insights, everywhere." Coveo AI, launched in 2015 was expanded to all Coveo applications in 2016. Coveo AI is the industry's first analytics and machine learning intelligent search and relevance service. Throughout 2016 the Coveo product team simplified its configuration so that everyone can be a data scientist. This important launch brought the first instance of machine learning applied to deep behavioral analytics -- out of the box -- to easily and constantly learn what is pertinent based on context and intent, and automatically tune relevance to always surface the most relevant information, every time and everywhere. Coveo AI has proven powerful at tuning relevance to proactively and automatically recommend relevant insights from everywhere. Customers using Coveo AI moved beyond the first level of search maturity -- becoming more responsive to every question -- to giving customers and employees proactive and predictive recommendations. Predictive information recommends what the individual doesn't even know they need, but will find important. In 2016 the Coveo product team began to issue PaaS offerings, which will expand throughout 2017 and beyond. The first instance, a new Developer Service for AI-powered Relevance and Analytics, was announced at the Salesforce Dreamforce event in October 2016. Named Coveo Express for Salesforce, the service makes it easy for Independent Software Developers (ISVs), Systems Integrators (SIs) and in-house enterprise developers (DevOps), to harness the power of Coveo inside their own Salesforce applications. Any developer can then build the solution of their choice, upon Coveo -- including Coveo Machine Learning, Coveo Analytics, Coveo APIs, Coveo User Interface toolkits and Coveo developer documentation. During 2016 Coveo customer Adobe launch in-app search with Coveo, within Adobe Photoshop, bringing easy access to highly relevant information to all Adobe Photoshop users. Adobe also deployed Coveo AI to ensure a stellar customer experience. In April 2016, Coveo launched Coveo for Sitecore Pro Cloud Edition including Coveo AI, providing cloud-based intelligent site search for Sitecore websites and system integrators to automatically deliver the best information and recommendations to every site visitor, every time. Coveo in 2016 also enabled a simple, secure and scalable approach to advanced cloud capabilities even for companies with valuable data and information on-premise: The Coveo Push API with elastic scalability and optimal security, combined with new advances in Coveo AI, to provide predictive product and content recommendations. This launch makes possible predictive recommendations for everyone, every time and everywhere, regardless of where the data resides, in any system, on premise and cloud-based. In the near future that will also include machine data. Throughout 2016 Coveo received a number of prestigious awards and industry recognition for its leadership, innovation and for being a great place to work. Recognized as the Most Visionary Leader in Enterprise Search and as a leader in Big Data Search and Knowledge Discovery, Coveo helps companies transform their business by engaging their prospects, customers and partners, and upskilling their employees, with the most relevant information and recommendations. A Sitecore Platinum Technology Partner and a Salesforce Gold ISV Partner, Coveo removes complexity and improves proficiency and engagement. Powered by artificial intelligence, unified search, rich analytics, and machine learning, Coveo drives more relevant and effortless experiences by providing contextual information and predictive insights from across all cloud and on-premises systems.

The company recently hosted an event for their suppliers, clients and employees at the Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina to show its appreciation and gratitude for their tireless support.After recording a substantial 40 per cent business growth in the UAE in 2016, Dhofar Global kicked off 2017 with a major announcement of its plan to firmly establish its presence in at least one additional GCC market this year and two more by 2020 amidst the region's flourishing cleaning and hygiene sector. With offices in Qatar and Oman, the company targets to enter Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain. Outside GCC, it has representative offices in Mauritius, Maldives, and Seychelles.Dr. Amer Al Rawas, Chairman, Dhofar Global, said: "As a regional leader, we continue to explore innovative mechanisms to further add value to our products according to the highest international quality and environmental standards. Such is also in line with our commitment to environmental protection and sustainability.

During our first year, we only had two trucks and 15 customers. But what was once a dream is now a reality. We have considerably grown over the years. We are now operating a fleet of over 60 trucks in addition to managing more than 300 employees professionally delivering one-of-a-kind solutions to our massive 7,000 regional customers from various industries.

World's First Notary for Digital Photos Enables Businesses and Consumers to Validate Photos as 100% Authentic; Company Closes $1.75 Million in Seed Funding SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - May 11, 2017) - In a digital world where seeing isn't always believing, TRUEPIC today launched a mobile app for businesses and consumers to verify an image's authenticity. Photos captured with TRUEPIC cannot be altered, filtered or modified in any way, enabling businesses to verify uploaded photos as accurate with 100% confidence, and consumers to share credibly unfiltered pictures anywhere on the web. With well over 1.8 billion smartphone photos uploaded to the internet each day, TRUEPIC's application can verify images shared on any website enabled with the technology, helping businesses to drive consumer trust and increase revenue. TRUEPIC's applications include its Image Authenticity Platform for Enterprise, an easy to implement SDK, which can be embedded within any mobile app, as well as a free consumer app, now live in the AppStore and on Google Play. The company is currently rolling out private beta tests with leading insurance, online dating, home rental, car rental, classifieds and beauty companies. Various use cases include: Also announced today is $1.75 million in seed funding from veteran investors including Jeffrey Parker, Co-founder of FirstCall & former CEO of Thomson Financial, Andrew "Flip" Filipowski, Founder and CEO of Platinum Technology (a billion dollar revenue software enterprise) and CEO and founder of SilkRoad technology, and William Sahlman, renowned Harvard Business School professor and venture capitalist. The funds will enable TRUEPIC to accelerate its sales across multiple key verticals and continue investing in its proprietary certification technologies for businesses and consumers. Photo-sharing is at an all time high, with more than 1.1 trillion photos captured in 2016 and expected to grow to over 1.4 trillion in 2020 but, at the same time, images and videos are no longer trusted as accurate or authentic due to the ubiquity of online & mobile photo editing. As of March 2017, five of the top 10 free photo and video iOS apps are used for editing, modifying and/or filtering images and videos; a ratio that jumps to 9 of the top ten paid apps. As a result, online businesses -- from insurance carriers, rental sites and classifieds to dating sites and beauty vendors -- must be able to validate shared photos in order to stem the lost revenue bred from fraud and consumer mistrust. Enter TRUEPIC. "Consumers must have trust in the businesses they choose, which is becoming increasingly difficult given the prevalence of digital photos that are not authentic. Massive credibility and revenue are being lost with each false photo uploaded to online services dealing in home rental, e-commerce, insurance and more," said Jeffrey Parker, former CEO of Thomson Financial, co-Founder of First Call, and TRUEPIC investor. "And, because TRUEPIC is led by digital experts, the company is well-positioned to help businesses that rely on photos gain the assurances needed to conduct business in a digital age." "The authenticity of digital files has historically been vulnerable: files were copied and edited without perfecting their provenance, creating opportunities for piracy, malicious alteration and forgery. Terms like 'photoshopped' came to indicate that a resulting image was altered to reflect an alternative reality, making digital files impossible to use in applications that demand the authenticity of images. Registering the original and authentic media to a blockchain, or digital ledger, results in a distributed indisputable database of reference files that makes falsification virtually impossible and the provenance of the images set in stone," said Andrew "Flip" Filipowski, founder and CEO of Platinum Technology, CEO and founder of SilkRoad Technology, VeriBlock, Fluree, Unocoin and TRUEPIC investor. "At last, the technology exists to assure that the digital world can interact reliably with the physical world, benefiting industries such as insurance, real estate, pharma, security, consumer products, AI, IoT, scientific research and more." "Our research shows that people are both overwhelmingly editing photos prior to sharing them online and also highly suspect of photos that are shared by others, causing distrust between consumers and the online businesses they frequent," said Jeff McGregor, CEO of TRUEPIC. "As the world's first digital notary for photos, we aim to bring trust and credibility back to digital images." "As a longtime entrepreneur, I have seen firsthand how falsified information can impact a business's bottom line," said Craig Stack, TRUEPIC founder and finance, restaurant, insurance and technology investor and entrepreneur. "Businesses need a solution to combat the rampant falsification of images online, and consumers want to share authentic photos that others will believe are the real thing. That's TRUEPIC -- we're truly the anti-filter." "There's no arguing that businesses that operate online need a way to verify images, and TRUEPIC is coming along at precisely the right time," said Shaun O'Hollaren, COO of BrowGal, a celebrity eyebrow shaping service and makeup line and a TRUEPIC beta customer. "The success or failure of our business hinges on potential customers believing that our products and services will make them look and feel better, rather than just assuming before and after photos have been doctored to sell more. TRUEPIC is truly a third-party sign of approval, giving our customers confidence they need to believe, book and buy." In a world where seeing is not always believing, TRUEPIC is the mobile app for businesses and consumers to verify an image's authenticity. TRUEPIC's patented technology acts as a notary for digital photos, driving confidence among consumers and businesses that a shared photo has not been altered in any way. Founded in San Diego, CA, in 2016, TRUEPIC is led by serial entrepreneurs Craig Stack and Jeff McGregor and is backed by leading investors and advisors.

“Is that what they really look like?” “Did they Photoshop the pics of the house we’re renting?” “Is this actually what I’m buying or just a photo ripped off the Internet?” These are the questions Truepic wants to answer with the startup’s photo verification technology. Today Truepic unveils its SDK for embedding its tech in other products plus its own consumer app. Truepic is also announcing its $1.75 million seed round to fuel its hope of becoming “the world’s first digital photo notary”. Here’s how it works. You either snap a photo (or video) inside Truepic’s consumer iOS or Android app, or within the app of a client that’s embedded its SDK. Truepic’s patented technology verifies that the image hasn’t been altered or edited, and watermarks it with a time stamp, geocode, and other metadata. Truepic stores a version of the photo in its digital vault and assigns it a six-digit code and URL for retrieving it. If necessary, blockchain technology can be used to create distributed copies of the data. Users can then export the verified and watermarked version of their image for use wherever they want, and viewers can visit the imprinted URL to double-check it with Truepic’s database. Truepics can be used on dating sites like Tinder to prove this is what you really look like, on a home rental site like Airbnb to show people exactly what the place they’re staying looks like, on an ecommerce site like eBay to prove the condition of what you’re selling, or to submit a verified image of damage for an insurance claim. Clients can pay a monthly fee to build Truepic’s lightweight Enterprise SDK into their apps so the whole capture, verification, and sharing process happens within their product. Truepic currently has a dozen beta customers for the SDK ranging from Fortune 500 insurance carriers to top beauty brands. While Airbnb and Tinder aren’t formal customers yet, people are already uploading Truepics on these sites and they could benefit from becoming SDK clients. “We are way past the tipping point in terms of how easily things are faked online and the loss of authenticity and reality in favor of perfection” says Truepic co-founder and COO Craig Stack. Photoshop, Instagram, Snapchat, FaceTune, and Meitu have made photo editing a common practice. “Businesses need a solution to combat the rampant falsification of images online, and consumers want to share authentic photos that others will believe are the real thing” Stack explains. “That’s Truepic – we’re truly the anti-filter.” Stack was an investor in insurance companies and vacation rental startup Flipkey that was acquired by TripAdvisor. This exposed him to the problem of faked images, leading him to found Truepic. He brought on Jeff McGregor to be CEO, who had founded payment app Dash and sold it to Reserve. Together they raised a $1.75 million seed round from Jeffrey Parker of FirstCall and Thomson Financial, Andrew Flilpowski of Platinum Technology and HR startup SilkRoad, and Harvard Business School professor and VC William Sahlman. That money will go to hiring and getting the enterprise SDK to public launch as Truepic ramps up sales. Truepic will have to fend off other startups, though McGregor believes those who tried before launched too early before photo editing became an epidemic. There are some tools like Image Edited, FotoForensics, and ImgOps for uploading a photo to see if it’s been doctored or floating around the web, but they’re all very basic. While large potential clients could build their own in-house system, and some are, he says “companies like the ‘cover your ass’ aspect of Truepic as an outside provider — they can point to an independent third-party who certified an image rather than having to back it up themselves.” They’d prefer to just pay a monthly fee and leave it to experts. If the startup can convince consumers that they get more dates, rentals, and sales when they use Truepic, it could grow its footprint as the watermarks serve as a viral growth driver. As for enterprise clients, they could roll out Truepic to boost confidence of all their users or reserve it as a premium feature. If you think we’re already at the height of the photo editing craze, just wait for augmented reality to pick up steam. Snapchat’s filters can already smooth people’s skin and make them more beautiful automatically. AR could let anyone, even without Photoshop skills, create masterful forgeries. Faking can be fun. But it can also impede serious business, causing people to be ripped off or catfished. When it matters, this verification technology could distinguish the Truepics from the lies.
