Self-Service Communities Used for Customer Service On the Rise

Trends show that customers prefer self-service communities when it comes to accessing support.

Customers demand fast service anywhere, anytime. Today, customers have more choice: more products to buy, more information to influence purchasing decisions, and more devices and channels over which to seek customer service. What they don’t have is more time. It’s no wonder that self-service interactions have overtaken all other channels for the third year running. We predict that companies will explore chatbots and voice user interfaces to enhance the self-service experience, as well as investigate visual engagement technologies to cut through the conversational clutter and preserve a customer’s time.

— Kate Leggett, Vice President, Principal Analyst at Forrester (Top Cusotmer Service Trends for 2018)

But there’s more that goes into setting up and managing a successful community than many companies realize. Just like we’ve helped Nokia, GoPro, and NextGen, we can help take the stress out of setting up a community with our adaptable, operational rollout strategy that you can customize to fit your business needs.
