Yext and Carahsoft Team Up to Bring the Power of Search to the Public Sector
The collaboration brings next-generation search technology -- both on- and off-website -- to government agencies to improve the constituent search experience, including their ability to find accurate and timely information about vaccine distribution.
NEW YORK and RESTON, Va., Feb. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT), the Search Experience Cloud company, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, today announced a collaboration to help government agencies harness the power of search to provide better access to information as they prepare to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine to constituents. Carahsoft will serve as Yext's Master Government Aggregator® and make the search company's leading Answers product available through Carahsoft's NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V and National Association of State Procurement Officials (NASPO) ValuePoint contracts and through Carahsoft's reseller partners.
"Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, people have been flocking to government websites with questions about testing, safety precautions, repatriation information, and much more. As vaccine distribution accelerates, we can expect another surge in questions," said Brian Distelburger, Co-Founder, President, and Chief Operating Officer at Yext. "Providing answers quickly and accurately has never been more important, and we're honored to team up with Carahsoft at such a pivotal moment in history."
"As government agencies plan their digital strategies around the COVID-19 vaccine, providing constituents with easy access to accurate information is critical," said Lorin Krzywicki, Sales Manager for the Yext team at Carahsoft. "As we've seen from Yext's initiatives with government agencies and other public sector organizations, advanced search technology is critical for distributing vital information at scale. We look forward to empowering government agencies and our reseller partners with this cutting-edge search tool from Yext."
Yext's collaboration with Carahsoft marks a new way for the search company to provide its services to government agencies. Within the span of 60 days last year, Yext worked with entities from the WHO to the States of New Jersey and Alabama to build custom information hubs so they could deliver accurate, up-to-date facts about the virus. One of these info hubs, covid19.nj.gov, has been visited about 34 million times by more than 19 million users, garnering almost 900,000 weekly visits on average.
Yext's search solutions are available to the public sector through Carahsoft's SEWP V contracts NNG15SC03B and NNG15SC27B and NASPO ValuePoint Master Agreement #AR2472.
