This paper deals with customer involvement in innovation processes in which knowledge e-services are developed. Three issues are analysed on the basis of four case studies. The first issue concerns whether service professionals become developers, rather than being directly involved in the solution of the customer's problem. Such tendency was observed. The second issue concerns the degree to which customer involvement and cooperation is happening in e-service innovation processes, this is not practiced as much as one might expect. The third issue relates to why customers should prefer e-services instead of traditional person-to-person services. Interestingly, price is not the only factor, knowledge sharing between the clients' clients or employees also play an important role. Finally, innovation as a continuous process after the launching of an e-service – after innovation – is emphasised.
