According to Gartner in the next two years, 85% of all customer service interactions will begin with self-service. And customer self-service will make up for 64% of all customer engagement.
Self-service is quickly becoming a critical tactic in improving customer experience. Strategic customer experience leaders also recognise that customer-facing solutions, like web portals, must include self-service elements in order to be a truly effective and valuable tool. Well-implemented self-service can provide long-term benefits such as faster support response times and increased satisfaction.
This whitepaper walks through some best practices to keep in mind in order to build a successful self-service portal:
- Assessing current content available
- Determining what self-service elements to add
- Onboarding and training
- Valuing the customer
Ultimately, the companies that are able to provide relevant and agile customer experiences will be the ones that can differentiate themselves from their competitors. Download the whitepaper to find out more.
