The Tealeaf system includes several components and modules to help you understand your customers and potential customers better.
Tealeaf on-premises provides three user interfaces: Tealeaf Portal, CX RealiTea Viewer (RTV), and PCA Web Console. Each user interface provides access to different Tealeaf functions.
The following table provides information about the Tealeaf user interfaces:
|Tealeaf user interface||Description|
|Tealeaf Portal||The Tealeaf Portal is a web application that is the most common point of access for Tealeaf users. You can use the Portal to search for and replay sessions, manage events and reports, and monitor user and site activities.|

Overview of the Tealeaf CX platform
Tealeaf CX is the datastore of online customer information and the engine behind all Tealeaf components. It's the platform that monitors communications between your web application and visitors to it.
Tealeaf CX is the base platform for all Tealeaf products. You must install Tealeaf CX before installing any other Tealeaf product.
Tealeaf CX consists of a suite of products for customer behavior analysis, customer service optimization, and integrations. These independent components can either coexist on the same server or reside on separate servers. From an installation perspective, you must install and configure Tealeaf CX and its components to use any Tealeaf product or solution.
Each product suite (Customer Behavior Analysis, Customer Service Optimization, and Integrations) has its own set of products.
The following image summarizes the Tealeaf CX offering.
Tealeaf functions and components
A Tealeaf solution can consists of various Tealeaf products. The three suites of products that address the different aspects of online Customer Experience Management are powered by the Tealeaf CX platform.
Customer behavior analysis
The Tealeaf Customer Behavior Analysis products help businesses with their online customer experience.
The Tealeaf products in this suite are used for observing and analyzing the online behavior of customers as they interact with your web site. Typically, the customer behavior analysis products answer the why questions about you customer-facing website. For example:
- Why do more customers abandon the credit card application on the second step rather than the first step?
- Why are customers searching for products multiple times without adding items to their shopping carts?
Products in the Customer Behavior Analysis suite include:
- Tealeaf cxImpact
- Tealeaf cxView
- Tealeaf cxOverstat
Tealeaf cxImpact transforms the dataset captured by Tealeaf into visually re-playable customer sessions. Tealeaf cxImpact not only captures the page-by-page, browser-level recording of each customer session, but also offers one-click access to all of the supporting HTTP(S) request-and-response information for further technical analysis.
Tealeaf cxView gathers the rich, customer experience dataset of Tealeaf cxImpact and puts it into executive-level dashboards, scorecards, and reports. Additionally, Tealeaf cxView includes a powerful early warning system that makes use of algorithmic discovery to automatically determine which areas of your site represent sources of struggle for visitors.
Tealeaf cxOverstat allows your company to:
- Identify problematic hotspots
- Optimize page content
- Improve form conversion rates
You use overlays to see where visitors struggle on a web page.
Customer service optimization
Tealeaf Customer Service Optimization products improve communication between a company's call center and its web operations for more effective customer service in multichannel environments.
You can use Tealeaf Customer Service Optimization products to help customer service representatives understand the full context of a customer's online session by preserving online interactions.
Products in the Customer Service Optimization suite include:
- Tealeaf cxReveal
- Tealeaf cxVerify
Tealeaf cxReveal makes use of the core functionality of the Tealeaf CX platform — session replay and search — and packages it into a simple user interface for efficient use by customer service representatives, sales associates and marketing personnel. Using one-click retrieval, users have instant access to both live and historical customer sessions from any existing CRM solution.
Tealeaf cxVerify preserves a record of online customer interactions on a website or mobile device. It provides a thorough, accurate snapshot of entire customer sessions to maintain a permanent record of customer online interactions and transactions. It helps online businesses maintain highly reliable records for dispute resolution, fraud investigations, and audit and compliance purposes.
Customer experience integration
The Tealeaf Customer Experience Integration products provide seamless integration with other business applications including business intelligence, web analytics, and voice of customer solutions. As the only solution capable of capturing all the data about online customers, the rich customer experience dataset is critical to successful cross-channel analysis and web site optimization.
Note: Tealeaf cxConnect requires the Tealeaf CX platform and cxImpact.
Products in the Customer Experience Integration suite include:
- Tealeaf cxConnect for Data Analysis
- Tealeaf cxConnect for Voice of Customer
- Tealeaf cxConnect for Web Analytics
Tealeaf cxConnect for Data Analysis allows users to integrate the customer experience dataset with any business intelligence or reporting application to create a multi-channel view of the customer for ongoing analysis.
Tealeaf cxConnect for Voice of Customer (VOC) allows you to integrate the customer experience dataset with any VOC application. Businesses use VOC technologies to understand the perspectives of and gather feedback from their online customers. When trying to uncover why customers are providing specific feedback, companies are able to use the integration with Tealeaf to review the actual experience of the individual users who provided feedback. This visibility provides full context about the user's experience and their feedback to ensure that businesses can effectively refine their efforts.
Tealeaf cxConnect for Web Analytics allows you to integrate the customer experience dataset with any web analytics application to help uncover trends or anomalies, such as a difference in conversion rates between two time periods or customer segments. When integrated, cxConnect for Web Analytics enable web analysts to see the actual customers behind these trends to investigate why an individual customer is succeeding or failing online.
