Creating a positive customer experience

Extensive research into customer experience shows (and common sense affirms) that those who have a positive customer experience are far more likely to purchase again from the same company, less likely to defect and more likely to promote the company to others.

Using Content to Improve Customer Service

Customers want answers to their questions and they want them fast. When a customer has a simple question, they don't want to search through pages and pages of content on a company's website to find their answer. Unfortunately this is generally the case on most company websites, creating an overall poor online customer experience. Using virtual agent software can help improve customer service by answering the customer's question without making them waste time searching through content. . . . Posted July 09, 2013

Embracing Context-Aware Knowledge

Cutting-edge technology empowers agents and customers with the information they need—on demand and in context. As a rule of thumb in customer service, any customer issue not resolved quickly will see its cost roughly triple. When you factor in research time, contact and context re-establishment time, time spent finding and bringing in experts to help, escalation time, time wasted on interruptions and more, you've got quite an inefficient, costly problem on your hands. . . . Posted July 09, 2013

Using Knowledge for Great Customer Support

Great customer support remains one of the few differentiators that businesses can sustain over time. Companies that are winning in today's hypercompetitive business environment provide standout customer service by leveraging knowledge to empower contact center agents and enable superior self-service for customers.

eGain has delivered KM solutions for multichannel customer support for well over 15 years. In the process, we have compiled hundreds of best practices; here are some of the popular ones. . . .

Modern Customer Service: Precise And Efficient

Customer service has become an integral part of the added value chain. It contributes to turnover, profit and ROI, and improves customer satisfaction and loyalty. Good service sets companies apart from the competition and stimulates growth in fiercely competitive markets. But the demand for fast reaction times with the correct answers in an atmosphere of extremely short innovation cycles causes service staff to be challenged even more.

Furthermore, professional customer service relies on powerful IT systems. Traditional IT systems that primarily focus on management of service processes need to be complemented by innovative, intelligent knowledge management methods and tools. . . .

The Knowledgebase of the Future

While we may still be waiting for flying cars and calorie-free ice cream, the future may be closer than you think when it comes to knowledge management. Here are five progressive ideas you can implement now to start building the knowledgebase of the future: 1. A search engine that knows what you are thinking. One of the most frustrating aspects of using a knowledge management tool is finding the answer you're looking for. Precious seconds are wasted trying different search queries and navigating complex hierarchies. But what if you didn't have to search at all? One of the most important advances in customer service knowledge management is the incorporation of customer context. . . . Posted July 09, 2013

Making the Case for Knowledge in Customer Service

Nowhere in your organizations can information be transformed into useful and actionable knowledge more gracefully and effectively than in your customer care (customer service, customer experience... whatever you want to call it) departments. For there resides the intersection between what you know, and what your customers want to know. But nobody says it's easy, and it's only getting harder. The three-way collision of Web self-service and social networking smashing into a reduced IT workforce and budget has done a number of whammys on KM in customer service. . . . Posted July 09, 2013
