WASHINGTON, February 24, 2021 - Hostme and Yext, Inc. (NYSE: YEXT) today announced they have partnered to help restaurant owners take full control of their online presence.
The partnership combines Hostme’s restaurant management app with Yext’s Search Experience Cloud platform, enabling restaurant owners to offer consistent and up-to-date information across all social media platforms, their websites, and the entire restaurant Internet ecosystem — including OpenTable, Yelp Reservation, Tripadvisor, and more. The outcome will be simplified online operations for restaurant owners and an enhanced experience for their guests.
“Restaurant owners already have a lot to manage these days. Now, they have one less thing to worry about. All their information will be kept consistent throughout their reservation system and social media profiles, eliminating confusion and frustration for their guests,” said Evgeny Popov, Hostme CEO.
Founded in 2014 and based in Washington, D.C., Hostme provides restaurant owners and operators around the world with fast, intuitive, and flexible front-of-the-house systems for restaurants at a sensible price point. These include smart table management capabilities, including online reservations and waitlisting, table assignment, and server rotation, plus analytics reporting.
The ultimate source for official answers about a business online should be the business itself. However, when consumers ask questions on company websites, too often they are left in the dark with wrong answers. Yext (NYSE: YEXT), the Search Experience Cloud platform, solves this problem by organizing a business’s facts so it can provide official answers to consumer questions — wherever people search. Starting with the company website, then extending across search engines and voice assistants, businesses around the world — like T-Mobile, Jaguar Land Rover, BBVA USA, and Kiehl’s, as well as organizations like the U.S. State Department and World Health Organization — trust Yext to radically improve the search experience on their websites and across the entire search ecosystem.
