SlimPay Help Center gets brand new look
Published: 20 January 2022
What is a help center and why is it important?
In a digital world, today’s customers are increasingly tech-savvy and like to be able to find the solutions to their queries themselves, whenever possible and in the shortest time possible. A help center, or knowledge base, is a self-service site that allows users to find answers to their own questions.
According to a Zendesk survey, 81% of users try to find answers to their questions before contacting customer service.
While dynamic, hands-on customer service is essential to the customer experience, so is the ability to have questions answered quickly. By providing customers answers to frequently-asked questions, a help center makes it easy for customers to quickly access the information they need, without having to contact a member of the customer service team and wait for a response.
In addition, this allows businesses to improve their offer, and to considerably optimize the customer journey. Not to mention the time that customer service teams gain to focus on more complex problems and more strategic tasks.
In a nutshell, the help center is the website that the customer will visit to find a quick answer to a question about the product or solution they purchased.
SlimPay has its own Help Center, created both to answer operational and technical questions from merchants, partners and other readers, as well as to be used as a source of information for issues related to repeat purchases and different payment methods.
The advantages and features of the SlimPay Help Center
At SlimPay, we value customer satisfaction and place great emphasis on improving the service we provide. The SlimPay Help Center is designed to help anyone find quick answers to technical, functional or operational questions.
It is designed with an option to quickly contact a SlimPay agent, in case the answer cannot be found in existing articles. By completing the Contact us form, which is always visible at the top of the page, the request goes directly to our Customer Success agents.
Most of our articles are accompanied by images and video tutorials to provide answers to frequently asked questions. Some of these videos can be found in articles related to our Dashboard, where we detail how to manage direct debits or how to manage card payments.
The Help Center has a smart search bar. Simply type any keyword in the search engine to get a list of related articles.
Let’s take a look at the new features
In an effort to make the user experience more intuitive and user-friendly, a number of design and navigation modifications have been implemented. We have created a new, sustainable design. Some of these changes include:
- new, clearer and more harmonious design that matches the overall look and feel of our brand;
- addition of graphic buttons and direct links to key sections of interest to our customers or readers;
- stronger content correlations through the “related articles“, “recently viewed” and “promoted articles” features;
- sustainable design, with a simpler structure and optimized for any device.
In addition to being tech-savvy, users today also use multiple devices, and increasingly use mobile devices to solve any queries. This is why the SlimPay Help Center has been optimized for mobile usage.
