Yext and UBL Enter Powerful Partnership

 

 

Today, we are excited to announce an exciting new partnership with Universal Business Listings (UBL).  Since joining Yext six months ago, I have been blown away by the size of the opportunity to help companies of all sizes manage their local business presence and get found wherever consumers are searching. We are laser focused on expanding our relationships with SMBs, agencies and enterprise clients and UBL can help us accelerate the huge opportunity we see in front of us.

Being out in the market, it is clear that the current solutions don’t provide the full solution that truly addresses the root problems. Marketers are looking for simple yet comprehensive solutions and the combination of Yext’s platform and UBL’s services will help fill this need.

UBL has been a pioneer in the local information search industry and the opportunity to have UBL take Yext’s platform to market is incredibly exciting, encouraging and validating for the entire Yext team. UBL is based in my hometown, Charlotte, so all the better to partner with a great company in a great city!

    Hi,

    I was wondering what exactly is your partnership with UBL? In your article you mention “…the opportunity to have UBL take Yext’s platform to market is incredibly exciting…”

    I remember noticing that UBL’s search results were very similar to Yext’s search results, so perhaps UBL simply used Yext’s ‘scanning technology’ or such. Are you still partnered with them in any way?
