Companies could incur $12 million in avoidable customer service costs every year according to an independent research firm’s ROI model
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) May 03, 2012
IntelliResponse Systems, providers of the patented IntelliResponse Answer Suite, a multi-channel web self-service software platform that delivers answers to customer and service agent questions, today showcases its latest infographic which describes how a poor online customer experience on a company’s website can lead to over $12 million in avoidable customer service costs.
Based on a published Forrester Research, Inc. report, the infographic reveals a Forrester model that estimates that a sample retailer could receive 2.8 million unresolved customer service visits to their company website each year. However, the majority of these customers could end up escalating their issues through higher costs channels such as phone, email, and chat. The total estimated cost of these actions accumulates to over $12 million for the sample company per year. The infographic also provides a break out of the costs for each of these three customer escalation channels (1).
These findings suggest to us that companies build a strong case for fixing usability issues on their website and work towards enhancing their self-service capabilities.
