Self-Service Levels are as Low as 1% in Some Contact Centres


From the results in our poll, it is seemingly clear that there are low levels of self-service in contact centres, with just one in 25 organisations aiming to handle more than half of their enquirers through self-service.

In fact, nearly 80% are aiming for a figure that is less than a quarter of all contacts.
