Customer self-service solutions consist of Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems, mobile self-service, virtual assistants, and e-support (web-based). These solutions empower end-users to perform tasks or access data on their own, without the help of any customer service agent. End-users can avail the service 24/7/365.
