& Mavenoid

Improved Online Troubleshooting Leads to 70% More Customers Helping Themselves

BSH is Europe’s largest manufacturer of home appliances, with brands Bosch, Siemens, Gaggenau and NEFF in the portfolio.
The Mavenoid Effect
  • 70% more solved by self-service
  • 16% less field-service bookings
  • 85% customer top-ratings

The challenge:
Reduce workloads. Make resources easy to find.

BSH’s call centers were experiencing high workloads and had identified that support requests were often repetitive. A lack of user-friendly self-help options had led to many customers instantly calling customer support as soon as there was a problem with their appliance.

A secondary challenge was that customers often needed to repeat themselves as there wasn’t a smooth transition between self-help and booking a technician.

"The powerful results of our A/B testing show that improving the way we offer troubleshooting to our consumers needs to continue to have a high priority. Mavenoid handles BSH’s internal complexity and quickly adapts to our global needs."

The solution:
Reduce workloads. Make resources easy to find.

Customers no longer have to manually search through articles and manuals for answers. Instead, they can start by simply describing their problem. Mavenoid helps troubleshoot and solve many issues without the need for a member of the support team to step in. With Mavenoid, BSH has increased the likelihood of a customer solving their own problem by 70%.

For problems that can’t be solved by self-service, Mavenoid assists with booking human service. Technicians get transcripts of what customers have already tried during self-service so they don’t have to repeat themselves.

Mavenoid has initially been launched to support Bosch washing machines in the United Kingdom.
