Fundamental Difference

There is a fundamental difference between these customer self service solutions and live support. We call this Guided Interactivity! 

What is Guided Interactivity?

When a customer calls your support desk, the Agent’s opening question is – “How can I help you?” Once customer responds to it, the Agent takes control & guides the customer one step at a time along a resolution pathway!

At each guidance step, Agent gives incremental guidance to the customer, e.g. power cycle the device. This is followed by a probing question, e.g. what is the color of LED now?. Based on the customer’s response to such questions – Agent chooses the appropriate next guidance step. You can build Yonyx Interactive Guides to present information similarly to the customer!

Some benefits of Guided Interactivity:

    • Limited Starting Points: Unlike searching among thousands of knowledgebase articles, customers have an easier time choosing among a few starting points that correspond to customer call drivers.
    • Attentive Customer: Customer is alert constantly responding to Agent’s questions.
    • Easy for Customer: The information or instruction is provided incrementally – so Customers have an easier time following it.
    • Relevant to Customer: Agents use their training to choose the next guidance step based on customer’s response to the previous question. Thus information shared with customer is always relevant to them.
Because of these benefits the customer is engaged when interacting with a live agent.
