Yext offers answers product for free to help brands deliver accurate and timely information about Covid-19

Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT), the Search Experience Cloud company, has announced that it is offering for free its new site search product, Yext Answers, to help brands in the wake of the global Covid-19 pandemic.

For a 90-day period, eligible businesses across industries will be able to transform their own website into a powerful search engine capable of answering consumers’ Covid-19 specific queries in real-time.

“Wrong answers can cost a company real business any day of the week, but in a time like this — the Covid-19 pandemic — wrong answers can actually cost lives,” said Howard Lerman, Founder and CEO of Yext. “Whether it’s a question to a healthcare provider about the efficacy of hand sanitiser, an airline about their cancellation policies, or a grocery store about the availability of bottled water, it’s imperative we help businesses across all industries deliver these coronavirus-related answers immediately and accurately.”

Businesses can register and learn more about this offer at  https://www.yext.co.uk/free-trial/ and start the process of getting Yext Answers implemented on their own website. Additionally, participating companies can implement Yext’s free Covid-19 Knowledge Graph plug-in to add Frequently Asked Questions about coronavirus — sourced directly from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — to their own website’s search experience.
