Endeca Technologies, Inc. unveiled the Endeca Discovery Suite, a new collection of modules that will extend the capabilities of the Endeca Information Access Platform and accelerate the development of next-generation e-commerce storefronts and media Websites. Built to increase online revenue by boosting conversion rates and increasing content consumption, the new capabilities will make it possible to rapidly design dynamic Web sites, accelerate online community building, and integrate online and offline assets. Through the Endeca Discovery Suite, Endeca will speed to market new modular capabilities well in advance of new platform or application releases through an accelerated, collaborative research and development environment - giving both new and existing Endeca customers the ability to take advantage of the advances. The first modules in the Suite, "Social Navigation" and "Search Engine Marketing" are available immediately with future modules focused on additional Web 2.0 capabilities, personalization and recommendations, closed-loop reporting, multi-channel operations and back-end integrations.

Social Navigation gives site owners new ways to extend and take advantage of investments in user-generated content. It leverages this increasingly popular, social content - product reviews, opinions, ratings, posts, user-generated tags - as well as profiles of individual contributors to help people discover information and products based on the paths and contributions of individuals with similar needs and preferences. The first release of Endeca's social navigation module can be used with best-of-breed social media software from Endeca's strategic partners as well as homegrown solutions.
