Google taught us that finding answers should be easy. Why should it be any different for your customers? A survey by leading analyst firm Coleman Parkes shows that:

  • 91% of customers say they prefer self-service if it were available and tailored to their needs
  • 40% of customers contact a call center after they can’t find answers to their question via self-service

Self-service lets your team do more with less—less cost, less time, and less bandwidth. Learn how you can make your knowledge work for you and satisfy customers at the same time.
