Recorded Webinar: Self-Service: Letting Customers Take Care of Themselves


Webinar on allowing your customers to help themselves.

More and more companies are harnessing new technology to let customers take care of themselves.

As well as an increase in mobile apps, web self-service, and putting ‘how to’ demos on YouTube, many companies are now turning to crowd-sourcing to allow users to help each other.  This can both reduce call volumes and also bring down costs.
