Tagove provides companies with video and voice chat communication tools, real-time browser activity tracking, screen sharing (for when a customer has a specific question, on any given page), and a CRM tool to track leads and pick up chats where they left off last. Tagove has clients like Citibank, Upwork, and other well-known companies that require constant positive communication with customers.
