There are many pertinent reasons why a company might want to build a truly comprehensive, community-based online customer service system. Two issues can be automatically assumed to be at the forefront though: increased sales and customer loyalty.

Undoubtedly the best way to build your customer service system is with the use of specialized online customer service software. There is simply no better way of reducing the costs associated with customer service systems, while at the same time maximizing results. Letting your customers help themselves could be enhanced by, for example, moderated live chat, and live chat with a technician if required. A service that is at hand 24-7 is the ideal way to make customers feel secure.

Benefits Both Ways

People love to feel that they are helping themselves, but there is added security in offering expert live assistance to your customers whenever it might be needed. Providing them with adequate facilities to learn and solve their own problems will instantly make your company more attractive to them. Chat and forums is an added way of allowing them to share information with other customers and even employees, and this can be a two-way exchange of ideas sometimes, leading to benefits for the company too. At the very least, input from customers can be added to the customer support database so that it becomes an increasingly comprehensive tool.

An efficient knowledge management system is an effective way of backing up your customer service support. Knowledge is the foundation of any customer support system. You need highly evolved organization and classification of that knowledge for it to be of the most value. It is even possible to provide online tutorials put together with information already in your system and make them available through your customer support medium.
