Yext Announces Collaboration with State of New Jersey to Launch Comprehensive COVID-19 Information Hub

Yext, Inc., the Search Experience Cloud company, announced its collaboration with the State of New Jersey to deliver residents accurate, up-to-date information about COVID-19 with a new online information hub.

The State of NJ’s new website, covid19.nj.gov, uses natural language processing (NLP) to understand the questions people ask about the coronavirus, then delivers answers using data collected from multiple NJ state agencies, federal resources like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Federation of American Scientists “Ask a Scientist” interactive tool.

“Getting the right information out to people can help save lives,” said Howard Lerman, Founder, and CEO of Yext, “The State of New Jersey is providing a critical service to its residents, and we’re committed to supporting them with Answers and our resources during this unprecedented time.”

“Access to accurate and timely information is critical in combating the COVID-19 pandemic,” said New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy. “I want to thank Yext for stepping up at this crucial moment and donating services and assistance that are further enabling us to provide our residents with vital information from numerous sources seamlessly and in a centralized location.”
