Service and support interactions have often become make-or-break for customer loyalty. Due to the rise of self-service, customers typically come to the contact center with only their most complex and frustrating problems, often as a channel of last resort. A recent Microsoft survey found that 36% or respondents thought the most frustrating aspect of a poor customer service experience is an agent that lacks the knowledge or ability to solve the customer’s issue. Combined with generally increasing customer expectations, and the switch to remote and hybrid work, this has put more pressure on customer service agents and can be a major factor in staff turnover and talent scarcity. Coveo’s new agent experience aims to equip customer service and support representatives with the information they need to be productive and proficient, even on day one.

“We regularly connect with our customers to get a better understanding of what technology would help make their employees’ jobs easier,” said Sawan Deshpande, General Manager Service and Workplace at Coveo. “The resounding consensus was that customer service agents crave the ability to personalize the full search experience for their own specific needs.”
