ABOUT US

Yext is the Answers Company.

Our mission is to help organizations answer every question about their business.

We collect and organize content into a Knowledge Graph, then leverage a complementary set of products — including Listings, Pages, Reviews, and Search — to deliver relevant, actionable answers wherever customers, employees, and partners look for information.

For over 15 years, thousands of companies worldwide have used our Answers Platform to create seamless content-driven experiences at scale across search engines, websites, mobile apps, and hundreds of other digital touchpoints.

Every journey starts with a question. Every answer starts with Yext.
