Utilities perform the worst in digital experiences


Per Gartner, poor CX has been the biggest barrier to digitalization success and disparate knowledge silos in organizations is a big deterrent to good CX . No wonder Gartner rates knowledge management (KM) as the #1 technology to improve not only CX, a critical success factor for digitalization success, but also the employee experience (EX) and operational performance. But legacy KM systems have failed to deliver the goods, calling for a need to modernize it with a revolutionary new approach called the “Knowledge Hub™.”

The eGain Knowledge Hub is the first such solution to unify and orchestrate all the essential technology building blocks of KM, including content management, profiled access, intent inference, search methods, conversational guidance (what to say next), process guidance (what to do next), analytics, personalization, and connectors to existing systems, powered by AI, ML, and analytics.

Leading utilities trust eGain!

Fortune 500 utility client serves consumers across six states in the US.

Managers also report great author, admin, and operational experiences beyond the agent experience.
