In fact, 58.6% of contact centres are struggling to combat this problem, indicating that the search function within knowledge bases is causing difficulties.

Other major issues mostly revolve around the quality of content that’s stored within the system.

For example, the second and third greatest challenges included information being difficult to update (37.0%) and out-of-date information confusing advisors (32.7%).

These problems bring to life the value of setting up reviews and monitoring knowledge metrics to bolster the system’s reliability.

This survey was done in partnership with Akixi, NICE, Nuance, Odigo, Poly and ProcedureFlow.
