Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT), the AI Search Company, today announced it has launched Yext AI Search on Salesforce AppExchange, empowering customers to transform the customer support experience for both agents and customers.

Yext AI Search on Salesforce AppExchange
Yext’s new integration on AppExchange introduces unique applications of AI search to customer support, enabling businesses to deliver official answers, streamline resolution, and improve customer satisfaction.
- “Help Site Search,” for businesses to add Yext’s advanced AI search experience — which can deliver more accurate, direct answers to complex customer questions — to their Salesforce help sites;
- “Support Form Deflection,” for businesses to equip their Salesforce support forms with Yext’s AI search to deliver relevant answers — in real time — to customers who are filling out the details of their issue; and
- “Agent Console Search,” for support agents to access Yext’s AI-powered search experience directly within their Salesforce agent console when they’re assigned a ticket to help a customer resolve an issue.
- By having instant access to information about an issue, customers will be able to self-serve and resolve issues on their own instead of having to contact customer support, while support agents will be empowered to drive faster resolution times overall.
