Offer FAQs to customers and a knowledge library to employees

What's the challenge?

Your customers don't want to call you if they don't have to — they'd prefer to find information on your website. But when online help is unavailable or produces poor search results, neither your customers nor your agents have quick access to the right answers.

What's the solution?

Consolidate knowledge that's scattered throughout your organization in a single searchable repository. Now, your customers can help themselves; but if they do reach out, your agents are also equipped to provide better, quicker assistance. Leverage machine learning to constantly improve and deliver search relevancy.

Story and Business Context

Knowledge makes it easier for contact center agents to use information to do their jobs boosting agent productivity and customer satisfaction. With the right knowledge, agents can provide resolution to customer queries in real time. When agents have access to standardized content for frequently asked questions, it helps expedite the customer request. Agents (especially when working from home) can address customer issues by using a knowledge base with vital information to solve customer inquiries.

Knowledge solutions support the following outcomes:

  • Promote agent growth and development
  • Provide quicker problem solving
  • Deliver better, faster decision-making abilities
  • Avoids redundant effort by agents
  • Reduce repeat callers
  • Increase customer satisfaction and productivity
  • Reduce training time

When agents have at their disposal up-to-date, easily available and relevant knowledge they provide high customer satisfaction to resolve customer issues.
