The Best Alternative to Salesforce Live Agent Chat

Salesforce has its own in-built web chat called “Live Agent”. While this system has its merits, Talkative is an AppExchange alternative that keeps the “native to Salesforce” agent-experience while bringing the advantages of a pure-play live chat system.

Multilingual support

Serve customers in 100+ languages with real-time translation.

Seamless escalation for superior customer support

Enable live video chat within your website, or enhance your web chat with easy escalation to voice call, video chat and cobrowse. 

Unlike Salesforce Live Agent, Talkative live chat can be connected to other contact channels for seamless channel escalation, enabling agents to provide superior customer support. 

  • Escalate to cobrowse to see the customer’s screen, annotate web pages and assist with form-fill
  • Add in 1 or 2  way video chat to offer visual, personal support
  • Change to a voice call to deal with complicated queries

Escalation is quick and easy with all channels operating in the same browsing session, meaning one pane of glass for agents and no plugins/downloads/apps for the customer.

Salesforce CRM Integration

You don’t have to choose Salesforce Live Agent just because you use Salesforce Service Cloud or Sales Cloud!

Talkative is designed to integrate with your existing Salesforce system so agents can handle all interactions from one dashboard within Sales or Service Cloud. 

Live chat sessions are correlated with customer information in your CRM, giving agents access to this data in real-time.

Talkative on AppExchange

Salesforce is the world’s greatest CRM and system-of-record for customer interactions, but it knows it can’t excel in every aspect. As a result, it has developed a platform called AppExchange. 

AppExchange is a Salesforce-vetted app store for business applications - every app featured in the store is designed to work natively with Salesforce and is approved by the company. 

Talkative is one of those systems! This means Salesforce has approved Talkative to work with its CRM, so you know it will integrate and work perfectly with your existing Salesforce systems.

Flexibility to make it your own

As the best Salesforce Live Agent alternative, our web chat solution is 100% customisable to suit your brand and business. 

From styling the live chat widget to fit your website, to setting up tailored chat triggers and nudges, you can adapt Talkative live chat to bring the best results for you. 

Unlike Salesforce Live Agent that requires complex code configuration to make changes to the software, Talkative customisation is user-friendly and easy.
