What our customers like about it
Exchange quickly at any time without disturbing the other party
With the webchat, we can exchange together in an informal and fast way at any time. When I read a news item and want additional information quickly, I can easily contact the authors with webchat directly from their business card that appears when I hover over their names. I can ask directly my question and they answer me instantly if they are available.
Easy access everywhere
With Jalios webchat, I can access my conversations anywhere in my Digital Workplace, either from the icon in the bottom right-hand corner or from the three view modes (application, sidebar and chat window). I can initiate conversations easily from my colleagues' business card or profile page. I don't have to leave my Digital Workplace and I receive message notifications directly.
