Companies that fail to provide the right online service either force their prospective customers to change channel or worse, may not get a second chance as they will simply move on without bothering to use other channels such as email or phone to get in touch.

55% of US online adults are likely to abandon their online purchase if they cannot find a quick answer to their question, according to Forrester Research. 77% say that valuing their time is the most important thing a company can do to provide them with good online customer service.

As it is forwarded to the agent, the navigation history is attached to the request, increasing the agent’s ability to provide a more personalised and relevant answer and also to ensure that a new Self-service article can be created to plug the knowledge gap. Agents and customer contextual feedback, reporting and analytics can also be used to identify gaps in the knowledge base, or areas in need of enhancement.
