Go Digital

Government and public sector organizations around the world are looking to make information more readily available to citizens, to make sure that citizens can understand their rights and responsibilities and that inquires can be escalated to the appropriate department or group. The web is accelerating the need for change and citizen’s expectations of service.

These government and public sector agencies face all the customer service challenges of the private sectors, but with additional layers of complexity. Inquiries can be wider ranging and more complex, and the consequences of inaccurate information more serious.


Industry challenges and eGain solutions

Access to information

Federal governments and public sector organizations are increasingly turning to contact centers and “one-stop shops” as a means of providing greater access to information and services.

  • eGain has worked with many such organizations to provide web self-help solutions and knowledge bases to support front-line enquiries.

Breaking down silos of information 

Government sector organizations face challenges in overcoming silos of expertise and ensuring that citizens are put in contact with all relevant parts of the organization.

  • eGain has worked with several state and central government agencies to enable their customer service associates to provide appropriate help and advice for a wide range of citizen inquiries.

Supporting complex entitlement processes

Public sector agencies may need to undertake complex entitlement or assessment processes.

  • eGain enables them in the consistent application of complex assessment processes and ensures rapid availability of appropriate services.

Increasing digital contact volumes 

A significant portion of any government’s customer service volume is over digital channels now. Government agencies need to be able to offer greater access to information through citizens’ channels of choice—email, web self-service, live chat, etc.

  • eGain has helped them cope with widely changing inquiry volumes over web self-service, virtual assistants, email, live chat, and cobrowsing  inquiries.
