Putting the “Service” in Self-Service

Putting the Service in Self-Service for VoIPA recent article in Omni-Channel Customer Engagement cited an important trend in the value of self-service which can be of interest to VoIP service providers.  Based on customer survey results, Omni-Channel explains how VoIP businesses can grow, while containing costs.

“For starters, they can do what customers expect of them when it comes to self-service: make it plentiful, streamlined and easy to use.”

The importance of self-service grew from 64% in 2015 to 71% in 2016, with customers wanting the ability to solve most issues themselves, placing high expectations for self-service.  As end users become more sophisticated, you can probably guess where this trend will head in 2017…
