Expectations vs. Reality: Unveiling New Research About The Knowledge Experience

Zoomin has partnered with Frost & Sullivan, global research and consulting firm, to answer the question: “What blind spots are preventing organizations from providing the knowledge experiences that customers expect?”

Their recent survey of B2B professionals reveals what customers expect from the self-service experience, how they’re actually experiencing self-service content, and how this compares to the experience that organizations think they’re providing.

Join Megan Gilhooly, VP of Customer Experience at Zoomin, and Malachy Lavelle, Head of Global Documentation at Avaya, to explore the answers to questions such as:

What's the first place customers look when deciding whether to purchase your product?

How likely are users to switch brands based on the quality of documentation?

How does the product content experience impact one’s likelihood to recommend a product?

This new report sheds light on some of the biggest blind spots in the customer experience – and how they’re holding your customers back from understanding your product, using it, and successfully solving issues on their own.

  • Let's Talk Technical Documentation — Growing Your TechDocs Team Recorded: Sep 16 2021 61 mins
    Guest: Toni Mantych > Host: Paul Perrotta
    Growing a team is much harder than it looks. The workload is crushing and as the work piles on, you start to hire more people. But now you have to train those people and get the work done. And you're probably changing processes (and perhaps tools!) at the same time. Plenty can go wrong. Learn how to approach growth from veteran leaders.

    You know you have to grow — but into what? We weren't taught how to plan growth at leadership school. Haha! What leadership school? Setting and communicating a vision is key. But so is slogging through the details. What will your leadership team look like? Who is responsible for what? What processes change and which ones stay the same? What roles change?

    Join Paul Perrotta, the Technical Documentation Wrangler, and his guest, Toni Mantych, who has doubled the size of her team at ServiceNow in two years. Together, Paul and Toni will talk about these primary areas for successful growth:

    1. Where is the organization headed? Are other organizations growing too?
    2. First things first: there is a definite order.
    3. What do you do when it doesn't go to plan?

    Toni has worked in large stable companies and stepped up to running an organization in a company that is growing by leaps and bounds. We will discuss the changes she has observed, what they did well, and what didn't work. We hope you'll join us for the show!
