Baynote and Avalon Consulting, LLC Announce Strategic Alliance

Systems Integrator to leverage intent-driven Recommendation for its Global 2000 customers.

Cupertino, CA. and McKinney, TX, Jan 27, 2009 — Baynote, Inc. and Avalon Consulting, LLC today announced an alliance through which Avalon Consulting will offer Baynote’s Collective Intelligence Platform (CIP) to its customers. The SaaS-based Baynote CIP will augment the existing search and web content management solutions of Avalon’s customers to improve online discovery and customer experience. The Baynote technology automatically displays the best content and products to website visitors based on the past behavior of like-minded site visitors.

“Baynote’s pioneering use of ‘collective wisdom’ fits in perfectly with Avalon’s philosophy of delivering the right information to the right person at the right time,” said Tom Reidy, Avalon president and CEO. “Our clients are looking to maximize their existing investments in content management and search and Baynote is a proven technology that will provide them with immediate value.”

The Baynote CIP can help organizations deliver more targeted Web experiences to customers and increase the profitability of the online channel through targeted content, product recommendations and social search. While other recommendation engines rely on behavioral data tied to user history, Baynote immediately adjusts to a visitor’s objective based on the wisdom of crowds. Baynote’s unique ability to dynamically manage virtual communities of like-minded visitors and identify user intent is core to this approach, which enables Baynote to help lead browsers and shoppers to the most accurate content, product or information at every page.

“Avalon Consulting has a tremendous track record of helping Enterprise-scale customers get the most out their websites,” said Jack Jia, president and CEO of Baynote. “By working together, we will be able to provide our customers with advanced platforms for enhancing their web presence that offer end-users the latest features for finding the relevant content for which they’re looking.”
