Modernizing Knowledge Management Transforms Customer Service

Article Featured Image

Forrester found that lack and inconsistency of knowledge among contact center agents is the biggest hurdle to getting good customer service in a mammoth survey that they did on our behalf. 34% of those surveyed complained that agents didn’t know the answer to their issues. 41% said that different agents gave different answers for the same problem.

Five years later, the situation has gotten worse. Now, 57% of consumers complain about getting different answers from different touchpoints, including chatbots, amid COVID.

The solution? Modernize knowledge management (KM) with a next-gen KM system that is omnichannel and hyper-intelligent. The system should be able to handle a range of customer queries—informational, transactional, problem resolution, or product advice—and it should provide the same answers and advice regardless of touchpoint.

A pioneer in Knowledge Management, eGain has helped blue-chip companies leverage next-gen KM, powered by robust content management, machine learning, AI, and analytics, all on an omnichannel hub, to deliver world-class customer service. The solution is easy to adopt with with a no-risk production pilot called “Innovation in 30 days.”

eGain’s AI-infused KM solution has delivered transformational business value.
