Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT), the AI Search Company, today announced that its website, www.yext.com, won a 2021 WebAward for Outstanding Website.
Evaluated on criteria including design, innovation, content, technology, and ease of use, the site was praised by WebAward judges as "clean, elegant, easy to navigate, [and] beautifully designed," with "a wealth of information, logical structure, [and] innovative solutions."
"We're incredibly honored for yext.com to be recognized by the WebAwards," said Josh Grau, Chief Marketing Officer at Yext. "When it came to the redesign of our own website, we wanted to practice what we preach by marrying a creative aesthetic with the power of our AI search. The result is something we're proud of: a brand experience that is bold and differentiated, and a user experience that is streamlined and search-forward."
Earlier this year, Yext set out to redevelop and redesign its website from the ground up — and completely in-house — in order to improve the experiences of customers, prospects, investors, and job candidates. To revamp its look and feel, the company built an entirely custom design system for the site. Under the hood, it transitioned the site to its own revolutionary AI search technology, enabling it to be faster, more responsive, and more accessible.
Founded by the Web Marketing Association and now in its 17th year, the WebAwards are the longest-running annual website award competition, dedicated to setting the standard of excellence for website development and recognizing the best websites in almost 100 industry categories.
