Self-help and service automation (e.g. chatbots) provide a means to save money and lower the overall costs of service delivery.

This article introduces the top opportunities to reinvest in service.

The average rate of case deflection within the technology industry is 23%. This article defines deflection and provides a step by step guide to implement a reliable deflection metric. This report is FREE with registration.
