Customer portals for the next generation
Self-service interactions have overtaken all other channels, according to Forrester.
Today’s customers want self-service that is smart, personalized, and proactive. Businesses want these portals to be effective not only in deflecting requests for human-assisted service but also in engaging customers and reinforcing the brand. eGain can do this for you with eGain SelfService + AI, a next-generation customer portal software for web self-service.
Here is just a sampling of what eGain’s customer portal software can do for you.
Intelligent self-service, powered by a portfolio of technologies, including natural language processing or understanding, virtual assistants, and AI guidance can help deflect requests for human-assisted service. Our clients have reported up to 60% deflection of phone calls, emails, and chat requests through our portals. Call deflection
eGain customer portal works in conjunction with eGain Secure Message™ to provide preemptive service for call avoidance through outbound notifications as well as proactive service when the customer is on the website through its portal. The proactive service could be contextual content offers, sales offers, or service offers. Proactive customer service
eGain customer portal can be easily configured to align with the brand’s look and feel. Moreover, the solution offers other possibilities to reinforce the brand.

US manufacturer of patio doors and windows makes innovative use of eGain’s customer portal software to improve customer experience and website sales, and reduce contact center traffic
This was a century-old manufacturer of windows and patio doors with unique problems.
- It had a product lineup of thousands of items, including hundreds of vintage products that were older than 20 years. People still called about them.
- Its website used terms that only people who knew windows intimately would know. That ruled out its consumers.
And then the company set off on a transformation journey that would improve the online customer self-service experience and the customer journey. It infused its customer portal with artificial intelligence reasoning capability. Hear for yourself.
