If you're a developer, this probably sounds familiar: you want to concept and build exceptional experiences, but you're challenged by having to work with different types of technologies and vendors — often with poor developer experiences.

Further, the businesses you work for are likely struggling with several problems of their own: first, most businesses have siloed data because they're using different vendors to store different types of information. And second, many of them are relying on a monolithic digital experience platform (DXP) and a traditional CMS — which makes it harder to adapt front-end technologies or build integrations with other services and platforms.

All of this adds up to a lack of flexibility — and frustration on the road to building compelling digital experiences.

You know that products that lack flexibility and scalability only slow you down. What's the solution? Building with an API-first, composable platform – like Yext.

Yext isn’t about pre-built technologies. It’s a playground for builders.

Yext is all about building great digital experiences your way — with the workflows you already use. We aim to combine the flexibility you want with the scalability you need. Here's how.

The Yext platform…

  • Is API-first. With our API-first, composable approach to building digital experiences, Yext is flexible, agile, and helps you move faster.

  • Works with your existing workflows and tools. With Yext, you can build digital experiences with existing workflows and languages that you already use – such as React or Github — rather than learning new proprietary skills.

  • Allows you to manage all your data in one single source of truth, creating a relationship database that is easy to build on.

  • Provides an experience built for stakeholders of all roles, including developers, administrators, and business users.

  • Supports customizations and functionalities to build your own apps or install pre-built Apps from our App Directory.
