    We are all about Advocacy and providing Successful Customers with a podium and a microphone to tell their stories and with Gainsight we now have our fingers on the "PULSE" of our customers. We can ensure that customers get the right attention at the right time. Without Gainsight it was not possible to preemptively support customer health.
  • Lauren Denault


    [Gainsight]'s been one of the best decisions we've made. Our team is now contacting customers exactly when they need proactive love rather than after they've asked for help, and our first copilot email has convinced a huge number of customers to turn on critical features with the click of one button.
  • Heather Hansen


    Our business is very complex with lots of products, and even in that scenario, Gainsight has proved to be a great tool to help our CSMs have a holistic view of their customers and track their interactions. I'm not sure there's a situation where I wouldn't recommend it. On top of that, the support team and our CSM truly treat us like their only customer.
  • Greg McGlaughlin


    We recently became Gainsight customers and have had a tremendously positive experience with the company and with the system. The act of getting Gainsight up and running at our company has been so smooth and successful, it has greatly exceeded my expectations and serves as a model for how we should roll-out all of our programs.

‘CSM & Product’ Is the New ‘Sales & Marketing’ Image

‘CSM & Product’ Is the New ‘Sales & Marketing’

If you take a look at my LinkedIn page (and scroll way, way down), you’ll see exactly where my career took a left turn. (No, not Chipshot.com—you scrolled too far!) I started my professional career as a product manager.  Well, I tried to start my career by doing a Master’s in Computer Science in college, which taught me I wasn’t smart enough to be a developer, but maybe I could hang with them. Over the years, I moved up from Product Manager to “Manager of Product Management” (still a bizarre title to me!) and so on. That was my career trajectory, and I couldn’t have been happier. It checked all the boxes for me—strategic thinking, working collaboratively, creativity, working with sales, and above all a total focus on giving the customer a great experience. Not to mention lots of PowerPoint! When I left the world of product management to become a CEO, Customer Success was barely a gleam in my colleague Dan Steinman’s eye! But when I look back on it, I can see how it was preparing me for this crazy world of CS, and how the skills I honed in PM are so complementary to my job today. For the […]

How to Build Human-First Products Image

How to Build Human-First Products

Today we announced that Gainsight is acquiring Aptrinsic. I couldn’t be more excited to start working closely with Aptrinsic’s CEO and co-founder Mickey Alon. I’ve come to respect Mickey deeply as a thought leader, and his vision for how to help his customers is very aligned with ours. In this post I’ll share the “why” behind this acquisition, which gets to the root of Customer Success philosophy. It may even challenge us to think differently about what Customer Success is really all about. Ask Why “I need to scale.” This is a statement I’ve made myself, and that I’ve heard many times over the years from Chief Customer Officers and their teams. It’s such a common refrain at this point that we take for granted that the need to scale is a central responsibility in the CCO role. But perhaps it would be worth our time to ask, “Why?” And to ask it again, and again, and again. Let’s play devil’s advocate with ourselves. “Why do you need to scale?” “Because CS isn’t a priority at my company.” “Why are you saying it’s not a priority?” “Because my CFO won’t give me more budget.” “Why isn’t your current budget sufficient […]

How to Run a Cross-Functional Quarterly Business Review Image

How to Run a Cross-Functional Quarterly Business Review

Thursday, October 25 | 11:00 a.m. PT (2:00 p.m. ET) Your Quarterly Business Review (aka Executive Business Review) is often a make-or-break moment in your customer relationship. If you nail it, you can proactively solve the challenges that are the seeds of future churn. If you fail, your relationship just might fail too. A properly-executed QBR/EBR is the culmination of months of effort from many individuals and teams. It’s an incredibly strategic moment, which is why so many people struggle to pull them off seamlessly. You need involvement from Product, Sales, CSM, Support, and others—but you can’t have representatives from each team present at the meeting. You need data from many different sources, but you need to orchestrate it in a way that makes sense for the customer. And you need to do it all at scale. How do you involve the right person at the right time in the QBR/EBR process? How do you share information effectively? And how do you scale your system proportionally for your high-touch clients and your long-tail? Join Kellie Capote, Manager of Gainsight’s National Customer Success Team, and Josh Lowy, CEO and Co-Founder of Hugo, as they help you solve your QBR/EBR strategy for […]
