The cost differential between a live interaction and one carried out with self-service is enormous.
Reducing the number of live interactions and so lowering contact centre costs is a key business driver for self-service. Especially since call durations, abandonment rates and speed to answer reach historical levels during the pandemic for most call centres.
Moreover, self-service is now so much more than touch tone IVR. It has advanced to more sophisticated offerings from chatbots to automated speech recognition technologies, beneficial to both businesses and customers. Plus, by feeding VoC programmes, optimising knowledge bases, and improving CX, self-service is key to the digital customer interaction revolution.
