eGain Knowledge for Self-Service provides distinctive, productive, brand-aligned self-service

One size doesn’t fit all in web self-service! The same approach to self-service will not work for every type of customer, every type of inquiry, or every stage of the customer life cycle.

eGain Knowledge for Self-Service™ enables organizations to provide distinctive, productive, and brand-aligned self-service experiences that enable breakthrough improvements in customer self-service effectiveness and adoption, while allowing seamless, context-aware escalations to live customer service or sales agents.

Powered by the patented eGain Multisearch knowledge access technology, innovative user interfaces such as brand-aligned avatar chatbots and UI templates, eGain Knowledge for Self-Service brings together the power of the industry’s broadest set of knowledge access methods, federated search, process intelligence, multilingual capabilities and flexible look and feel—all behind a single search box—for distinctive, on-target self-service.

An integral part of the eGain Customer Engagement (CEH) suite, the self-service software enables call deflection from contact centers, and when needed, full-context escalation of self-service interactions to assisted interactions.

New enterprise search features, combined with its knowledge management and multichannel suite, make eGain a must-have vendor for enterprise short lists.
