What is Chat Flow?

Chat Flow is an easy-to-use web-based application that allows you to quickly and collaboratively design and deploy conversational experiences across multiple chat applications and connect them to your organization’s core functional APIs. Its visual interface enables you to create, edit, preview and deploy flows to ensure you engage with your end-users efficiently via the channels they enjoy using most. Chat Flow enables you to fully leverage all of Clickatell’s product lines for seamless integration and for switching user engagement between a chatbot and an agent desk.
