The pair will be discussing the increasing importance of digital self-service knowledge and the trends driving customer expectations for service.

The one hour session will take a deeper look at how actionable knowledge management can address the increasing need for self-service, while support the need for traditional channels when self-service is not enough. The following key highlights will be shared:

Trends impacting effective customer engagement and self-service
The 3 E’s of customer experience: Effectiveness, Ease, and Emotion
Best practices for creating actionable knowledge
The digital tipping point and how to balance self-service and the human touch

“Findings from our recent CXMB Corporate Report show that 63% feel their company is beginning to divert focus away from traditional avenues of assistance into autonomous (self-help) options,” said Chad McDaniel. “While it’s crucial to still offer traditional channels, it’s becoming increasingly important to not only offer self-service, but to optimize it the right way.”
