Posted December 23rd, 2022 in Communications. Tagged: .

According to HBR, 81% of customers attempt to take care of matters themselves before reaching out to a service representative.

Customers do not like lengthy support queues. Using self-service platforms like knowledge base, they avert increased wait time during calls, email or even during a live chat. But having a self-service tool like a knowledge base isn’t just beneficial for your customers. It’s beneficial for your organization as well.

  • Assisting support agents to become more productive during work hours
  • Helping your organization reduce support cost

The list goes on. These benefits build the perfect premise to why an organization must invest in a knowledge base solution. In case you haven’t added one to your support ecosystem, we’d recommend giving Document360 a try.
