Customer Self-Service Helping Customers Help Themselves

Self-help preferred!

Your customers want their questions answered, 24/7 and in their channel of choice. According to a study by Forrester Research, 72% of respondents prefer to look for solutions themselves instead of calling customer service. They usually search for information online, but conventional FAQs on websites are static, often outdated, and not tailored to the user’s immediate context. That means finding an answer involves too much searching when users prefer a direct option.
