Conversica is an excellent tool if you have a large database of potential students, sales leads, or other forms of potential customers/users. It does not replace human interaction, but instead supplements it - allowing your admissions/sales/retention team to spend their time with those individuals that are in most need of assistance - whether that be because they are "hot leads" for a sale, students with a sincere interest, or customers needing assistance beyond the capabilities of an automatic system.

If you have an organization that requires salespeople to go into the field and your organization is mid-sized, then I recommend Tact.ai for your salespeople. It is not possible to carry laptops when they are out in the field but it is possible to carry an iPad or phone. This makes their tasks easy and reduces considerable time wasted on administrative activities and increases productivity at the same time.
Read full review Pros Conversica is great at working low level leads and surfacing those that are in fact interested in your product or service. Conversica is also useful in weeding out leads that are not strong. Since Conversica is sending emails to various prospects, customers and opportunities, it allows sales, account managers, service etc, to focus on other activities, thereby saving time and freeing up resources.

Understanding the conversation path options that the AI could take is improving greatly, but can still use some improvements for admin awareness when standing up a new conversation. Understanding what conversation types exist and how they differ from one another is sometimes difficult to self-serv, but the Conversica team is always very good about helping out explaining these.

Tool is extremely powerful but comes with a heavy price tag. As long as we close more than 30 deals with year with Conversica's assistance it will be an easy choice to renew. If we don't we will have to figure out if these funds are best spent in other lead generation places.

Standalone, it's very easy to use. It becomes a little more complicated when you're working with it as an integration in Salesforce.

Our account manager and support rep have been extremely helpful in helping us get the system where we wanted it. Given our original use case as a lead qualifier, a lot of the conversations needed to be altered or exceptions created in order to provide the customization we needed. Our AM and support rep were able to accommodate most of our requests and were extremely helpful in working with us on a solution.

The implementation went smoothly. The only advice I would give for anybody looking to integrate Conversica with Salesforce is to ensure that either you or somebody within your organization has experience with process builder as you'll need to create some processes to force your leads into Salesforce campaigns for the Conversica system to pick them up.

I haven't looked into many other conversational ai products - we received a solid recommendation about using this and have been happy with the process and experience. Price was also pretty good, so we didn't feel a need to shop around on that front. If things change I'll do that homework, but we're happy for now

app sucks and so it's not useful to do the searches that we need.
Read full review Return on Investment We have found that each conversation type has a different ROI. Some are very hard to report off of, whereas others are easy. this is because some are more built around building awareness of what we offer where they may not purchase it for months down the line. Has helped us to save on salaries. If staff were to try to do the same thing our AI Assistant does, it would take them many hours to be as successful. Read full review We have been able to experience better performance in our sales, as we spend more time dedicated to our customers than doing administrative tasks, thanks to Tact.ai. Our team is more organized with clients, with meetings up to date, no delays in responding to clients, which has increased productivity and performance considerably. Read full review ScreenShots
