The NovuDialog platform contains a set of advanced features you can use and extend. Discover the features that put you in control!
Funnels, surveys, forms
The NovuDialog platform can be used for the development and maintenance of: sales funnels, online surveys, inquiry forms, feedback forms, lead forms, request forms, contact forms, chatbots and more.
Manage all your dialogs from a central secure environment. Give team members the permission to easily and efficiently view, test, edit and optimize all dialogs.
Give team members permission to make changes to the dialogs in a no-code online editor. Each change is logged and can be reverted at any time.
Make sure that your dialogs are responsive and look good on any device. The NovuDialog platform enables you to build stable and fast working dialogs based on any interaction design (wireframe).
The NovuDialog platform offers an extensive set of out-of-the-box (OOTB) controls/components. Use these well-tested OOTB controls to develop high-quality dialogs and to save development time.
Improve the accessibility of internet for all people, including the elderly and people with disabilities. NovuDialog controls comply to the Website Accessibility Conformance Evaluation Methodology.
All content and controls in your dialogs can be dependent on multiple (user)data fields. Show or hide a specific question or piece of content based on the known data in the dialog.
Easily create dynamic emails. Design the lay-out and content of HTML emails. Transform the (user)data to show formatted text. Furthermore, use dependencies to show or hide text.
Configure (user)data to generate dynamic PDFs. Design the lay-out and content of these PDFs. Generated PDFs can be downloaded directly or can be attached to emails.
Save for later
Allow dialog users to save a dialog and return later. The user data can be stored in an encrypted link or an external data source.
Use Novudialog's standard zip-code search component to set up a connection with a zip-code service providor.
Get your integration code and easily integrate your dialog in your favourite CMS or web-application. Integrate natively on the page.
Want to change or reuse existing data? Fill the data-model with data from external sources and start the dialog with the known data prefilled-in.
Start data collection with one form and take the data to the next form. For example, go from a quick quote form to a separate check-out form.
Integrate with workflow management systems, like Microsoft flow or IFTTT, to follow-up tasks from your dialog.
Secure dialog access
Secure the dialog access with OpenId or IdentityServer to only grant access to authorized users. Integrate dialogs in a secure app or an online environment.
Track all user interactions
Use your favourite analytics platform to measure all dialog user interactions. Send analytics events to Google Tag Manager (GTM) and analyze them in Google Analytics. Easily extend the analytics event with custom calls.
A/B test everything
Switch two fields or change a button colour. Add some focus text or leave a question out. With the NovuDialog platform you can easily A/B test everything.
Easily create a variant of your dialog for multiple channels: website, app and chat. Manage all dialogs from a central environment.
Create dialog in multiple languages. The model state persists when switching languages, so no data is lost during a language change.
Easily duplicate an existing dialog or reuse parts of existing dialogs. Create a dialog duplicate for a derived product or a (white-label) dialog in minutes.
The NovuDialog platform has data-driven dialogs. Set up a data model definition with all fields defined and typed. Connect the fields to the controls in the dialog.
The NovuDialog platform supports several ways to store data on the user's computer and to retrieve it when necessary. This lets you persist data for the active session, save the data for a specific period or set the data to be reused in other dialogs.
Two-way data binding
The NovuDialog platform has two-way data binding to synchronize between the model and the dialog. When model data changes, so does the dialog, and vice versa.
Custom client commands
In the NovuDialog platform you can create custom client commands. With a client command, specific client interactions can be made without a call to the server. Make a command once and use it in any funnel on any control.
Custom server commands
Create interactions between your dialog and any external service using server commands. The custom command can be coded in an isolated project. Make a command in .NET Core with C# once and use it in any funnel on any control.
Calls for external background tasks, short-running and long-running, CPU intensive and I/O intensive, can be handled by the task manager. If a background job encounters a problem during its execution, it will be retried automatically several times.
Security and data integrity
We put great effort into providing a secure product by performing regular security penetration tests. In order to ensure data integrity, we also make sure that dialog users can only change data that they are allowed to change.
OWASP top 10
Security does not stop at the application level. That's why we adhere to best practices such as the OWASP top 10 for application and infrastructure configuration.
No storage needed
Storage of client data is optional. If it is needed to store client data the data access layer can be connected to a storage (Blob-storage, SQL server, Cosmos DB etc). A retention period is configurable. The data access layer prevents SQL injection attacks.
The NovuDialog framework is built using ASP.NET Core and implements the Onion Architecture. This provides a composable application and loose coupling of components.
The NovuDialog platform was built with support for high performance dialogs in mind. Client-server interactions are optimized and only required when necessary. Server calls only contain the datamodel and are secured.
The NovuDialog framework scales linear. Need to serve double the concurrent users, scale up the server resources accordingly!
Test before production
In the NovuDialog platform you can choose to use different environments for development stages in a DTAP-street. Let your team test and accept all changes to your dialogs before deployment to production.
Get access to a private NuGet feed to get the packages for your NovuDialog custom project.
Build and release
Set up DevOps build and release pipelines to automate the deployment process of your NovuDialog custom project.
Windows or Linux
The NovuDialog frontend API can be hosted on a Windows or Linux webapp in Microsoft Azure or On-premise. Preferred hosting is on Microsoft Azure.
