Using Customer Contact Centers to Measure the Effectiveness of Online Help Systems
In this article, I introduce the reader to the customer contact center industry and to technicians who staff the phones for countless credit card companies, banks, and help desks around the world. Next, I explain why technicians need efficient and effective tools to complete their job duties. After I provide the necessary background information about ClientLogic, the focus shifts to how ClientLogic developed and then tested two wizard-style help tools. I conclude the article by discussing the implications the study has for technical communicators, especially those who create and measure the ROI of online help systems.
