According to one embodiment, a request is received at a support center a request from a user for registering a product, where the request includes a machine-readable code that uniquely represents the product. In response to the request, the product is identified and product information is compiled based on the machine-readable code without requiring the user to specifically provide the product information. The product information of the identified product is stored in a user asset store associated with the user, where the product information stored in the user asset store is utilized subsequently for supporting identified product.


According to one aspect, a request is received at a support services application programming interface (API) of a support center that provides support services to a plurality of products of a plurality of vendors, where the request is received from a user for support services of a product. In response to the request, a case identifier (ID) is instantly generated that uniquely identifies a current instant support services session associated with the user for supporting the product. A touch plan is dynamically created representing an instance of the support services session, where the touch plan is identified and tracked by the case ID. A communication session is established between an agent and the user to allow the agent to provide support services to the user based on the touch plan.


According to one aspect of the invention, it is determined, at a support center, a relationship between a first product provided by a first vendor and a second product provided by a second vendor. The first and second products have been purchased by a user via a purchasing facility associated with a client of the support center. In response to a first event received from the client or the first vendor indicating a change of the first product, a first message is transmitted to the user on behalf of the client notifying the user the change of the first product. A second message is automatically transmitted to the user offering a support service of a possible change of the second product in view of the relationship between the first and second products, without requiring the user to initiate a request for the support service.


According to one aspect, a request is received at a services application programming interface (API) of a support center from a user for support services of a product. A first list of one or more communication channels that are available for the user to contact an agent of the support center is generated based on a second list of one or more communication channels preferred by the user and a third list of one or more communication channels preferred by a vendor associated with the product. The first list of one or more communication channels is transmitted via the service API to the user. In response to a selection of a communication channel from the first list, a communication session is established between the user and the agent via the selected communication channel for providing support services of the product on behalf of the vendor.


According to one aspect, a request is received at a services application programming interface (API) of a support center from a user for support services of a product provided by a client of the support center. In response to the request, one or more articles associated with the product are identified that have been published in an online publication forum, where the articles have been extracted from a knowledgebase (KB) based on a support history of the product maintained by the support center. A list of support options is presented to the user, including a first one-touch button to contact an agent of the support center and a link to the one or more articles of the publication forum to allow the user to attempt finding a solution to the product without having to contact the agent of the support center.


According to one embodiment, a self-service system is to provide self-support knowledgebase (KB) information to allow users to navigate the self-support KB. A monitor is to track user interaction with the self-support KB while a user navigates through the self-support KB. A support service system is to receive a request from the first mobile device of the first user to request a live support service and in response to the request, the support service system is to identify a set of skills required to handle the first product currently navigated by the user. An agent manager to select a support agent having a skill set satisfying the identified skill set. A communications and routing system coupled to the support service system to establish session video chat communications session between the mobile devices of the user and the selected agent.


A service center receives a request from a remote device for a live support session of a product supported by the service center, where the service center provides support services for a plurality of products on behalf of a plurality of product providers. In response to the request, the service center determines one or more preferred agents that are known to a user of the remote device and transmits information representing the preferred agents to the remote device to allow the user to select one of the preferred agents for the live support session. In response to a user selection of an agent, a communications session is established between the user and the selected agent to enable the selected agent to provide live support.


A service center receives a command from a remote device over a network, where the service center provides support services to users on products on behalf clients. Based on the command, a context element of a route sequence map associated with a user of the remote device is identified, where the identified context element is one of context elements of the route sequence map in a hierarchical structure. Each context element having one or more property values specifying at least one of an action to be performed by the service center and a link to one or more child context elements. It is determined whether the identified context element is an action context element or a navigation context element based on one or more property values associated with the identified context element. If so, an action specified by the identified context is performed.


A service center receives a request for activating a subscribed service on a first device that has been registered with the service center, where the service center provides services to a plurality of products on behalf of a plurality of product providers.

The device information and the credentials are transmitted to a service provider that provides the subscribed service to allow the service provider to activate the subscribed service on the first device, without having the user to directly contact the service provider for activating the subscribed service.


A service center receives a request from a remote device for accessing a learning course describing operations of a product that has been registered with the service center. In response to the request, a media stream representing the learning course is transmitted to the remote device to allow a user of the remote device to navigate the learning course, without requiring the user to directly access a training facility of a product provider associated with the registered product.
