Customer self-service (CSS) is a combination of customer and service interaction solutions, which are intended to empower customers to provision themselves. Self-service is a convenient way to meet the growing customer expectations. Enhancing the customer service through self-service tools empowers companies to increase customer satisfaction and loyalty, thus gaining a competitive advantage and decreasing the churn out rate. However, employees in many organizations are hesitant to adapt to new self-service technologies, and there is still less awareness among customers about CSS, this can be seen hindering the growth of the market, but is expected to be impactful for only a short period. MarketsandMarkets expects the global CSS software market size to grow from USD 4.33 Billion in 2016 to USD 9.38 Billion by 2021, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 16.7% from 2016 to 2021.
