Why Om | Nieuwe Energie Needed Raffle
Om | Nieuwe Energie had faced significant challenges in meeting their customers' growing expectations for faster response times, primarily due to a subpar search function on their website. Consequently, they found themselves overwhelmed with a high volume of incoming calls, straining their resources. Being the foremost green energy collective, their customers had diverse and intricate inquiries that demanded continual attention. Unfortunately, the extended resolution times started affecting customer satisfaction levels negatively. Moreover, the frustration stemming from the website's poor content navigation further compounded the declining customer experience.
“Our customers tend to want to see a quick answer to their question and that’s where the tools really helps. Because normally they wouldn’t be able to find it that easily and would pick up the phone a lot fast than you would hope.”

Importance of Self-Service
Providing customers with the ability to self-serve on a website holds significant importance in today's customer service landscape. Research conducted by American Express reveals that more than 60% of consumers prefer automated self-service options for simpler customer service tasks, such as using a website or mobile app. This preference reflects the growing demand for convenient and efficient solutions that empower customers to find answers and resolve issues independently. Furthermore, Gartner research highlights the substantial benefits organizations can reap from implementing Virtual Customer Assistants, with reports of up to 70% reductions in calls, chat, and email inquiries. Raffle helps companies improve their self-service options and streamline customer support processes, to improve efficiency, and ultimately enhance the overall customer experience.
