Self Service Experience

Self-Service should just work.

Empower users to solve common issues on their own, faster than ever with Helpshift’s Self-Service Experience.

What is Self-Service?

The term self-service refers to a type of customer service offering which puts the power in the hands of customers. Using in-app, in-game, or web self-service, customers can instantly access answers to common queries, and resolve typical problems without having to go to the hassle of contacting an agent.

Self-service is being used to improve customer experiences, by equipping customers with the information they need without having to ask for it. Typical examples of self-service can include FAQs, Quick Search Bots, and knowledge base articles.

The Benefits of a Self-Service Experience

No experience should feel disjointed. Give users consistent self-service in-app and on the web. Today’s customers are busy, and their expectations in terms of customer service are higher than ever. If they come up against a problem, they expect it to be resolved at a moment’s notice, with minimal fuss.

Self-service enables customers to access all the support they need, from any device. This automated service can easily be scaled as needed, so it never limits the capabilities of ambitious brands. Automated bots can be used to provide answers within seconds, meaning no customer ever has to wait around for support.
