New software that syncs local business info includes multi-location mode, built-in listings scanner, and review monitoring.
Yext today unveiled The Next Yext, the newest generation of its software that instantly syncs local business information across 50 publishers. The new version features an overhauled interface designed to enable large and small businesses to share their most up-to-date local info. The new release includes powerful multi-location features for easily managing thousands of locations at warp speeds, a built-in listings scanner and profile builder, and review monitoring. Since September, Yext has powered over 950,000 authoritative business location updates, including 67,535 address updates, 108,757 business phone number updates, and 154,106 business hours updates.
“Business information is just as dynamic as social information. Just like making new friends, taking a new job, or moving to a new city, business information like specials, availability, and featured products change around the clock,” said Yext co-founder Howard Lerman. “The Next Yext was specially designed to support the never-ending business update cycle for large and small businesses. Today’s Next Yext will advance our mission to synchronize the world’s local information, by enabling businesses with more advanced controls, providing publishers with authoritative data, and ultimately, getting end users the most timely local info.”
Yext also announced new featured network partners Manta and Factual will join the PowerListings network, expanding its monthly reach by over 30,000,000 unique visitors. Yext also announced that seven additional partners, YellowPageCity, AmericanTowns.com, CliqSearchcom, USCity.net, ChamberOfCommerce.com, 8coupons, and Alike have joined the PowerListings network.
