True to its goal of making the tire buying process easy for consumers, Goodyear wanted to deliver a cutting-edge customer service experience through virtual assistance and multimedia chat to help seamlessly match consumers with answers to their questions. The company also wanted to control costs and enable a seamless experience for contact center agents.

The company’s retail group has already gone live with eGain Virtual Assistant and eGain Advisor Desktop.  The contact center is leveraging the solution to answer questions, resolve issues, and recommend products to consumers, retail stores, and OEM clients. The deployment is being expanded to the company’s ecommerce and consumer care divisions.
