Effective and efficient support: Web Self service portal allows more efficient support representatives, allowing the executive to have more control over each individual case that comes into the system. The representative will have full access to your customer history and they can refer on the trouble ticket to demonstrate to the customer which problems are recurring and which are unique. They can also link solutions from other customer's problems back to the original trouble ticket, saving time and money, and letting your support representative work on what they do best to solve the problems.
Giving cases Online: Customers don’t need to contact your representative to submit case/queries; they can simply log in through the web service portal and submit the case which is then instantly available to the correct representative based on routing controls you specify. This frees up your phone lines for customers who don't have internet access, and allows those who do much more automated and efficient service than sitting in a hold queue at your contact centre.
