    DemandForce

    [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.
  • Greg McGlaughlin

    AppNexus

    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.
  • Heather Hansen

    CareerBuilder

    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.
  • Howard Tarnoff

    Ceridian

Seven Reasons Why Your Customers Won’t Renew Image

Seven Reasons Why Your Customers Won’t Renew

The natural tendency of customers and vendors is to drift apart, not closer together. Let’s say it another way: The natural tendency of all your customers is to churn. But is that true? Let’s play it out. You make the sale, close the deal. Then you do nothing. What happens? I think we can all agree that on a long enough timeline, everybody quits, cancels, or lapses. On a long enough timeline, everybody churns. 100%. Okay, maybe that’s overblown. Let’s say 99.9%. And we see this play out in the data. This is a pretty standard SaaS retention chart. We almost always see the steepest drop-off during the onboarding process, an inflection point, and then a steady decline in users over time. In a perpetual licensing model, that doesn’t really matter. You’ve made your margins on the initial deal. Every ex-customer is just another lead for a new sale. But in subscription, recurring revenue is the lifeblood of your company. You have to do something to retain and expand customers. And we’re not just talking about logos, we’re talking about dollars. Partial churn, downsell, contraction. These are just as bad for business. But you know that. That’s why you’re here. […]

3 Ways to Structure Your Customer Health Score (No Usage Data Required) Image

3 Ways to Structure Your Customer Health Score (No Usage Data Required)

When I think about health scores, it’s hard not to picture the analogy that’s built into the name: health. In the health analogy, customers are like patients and Customer Success Managers (CSMs) are like doctors. CSMs do tests and measure signals to diagnose any “diseases” and prescribe the right treatment to reduce risk and improve customer outcomes. Fun fact—the healthcare economy has been increasingly thinking about patient outcomes not just as a programmatic way to benchmark how care providers are performing, but even as a way to think about billing and control costs. But let’s take that healthcare analogy a bit further (too far, probably). Your doctor has all sorts of ways to understand, diagnose, and treat your health. But imagine if they only were taking your blood pressure? That’s the trap we get into—especially in SaaS. We can become overreliant on usage data to the extent that some companies overlook other signals. Outside of SaaS, some companies assume they can’t “do” customer success without usage data and end up underinvesting in their customer base. I interviewed three of our customers to find out how they were thinking about health scoring, and each gave me a dramatically different model based […]

Confessions of a Former Pendo User: Product-Mapping Pains Image

Confessions of a Former Pendo User: Product-Mapping Pains

Imagine a world where your computer didn’t have any folders, only files crowding your desktop. That’s the feeling of analyzing usage of your product’s features without any hierarchy to organize them. As the former CS Ops Director for a business intelligence software company, I invested a lot of time making the most of our usage analytics application, which was originally built for measuring general web traffic. I’m proud of what I was able to create. With the help of their tool and their team, I increased usage, assisted our finance team with tracking down overdue invoices, won a customer award, and shared what I’d learned at their company events. But if you’ve ever tried to use a pair of chopsticks to pick up those last few grains of rice, you know how much extra time is spent making a tool fit your needs—chopsticks are great, but not quite right for the task at hand. Let me share with you my Friday ritual. Manual Tagging, Duplicates, Load Times, Oh My! Every Friday around 4:00 p.m., I’d finish those last few important emails, grab a beer from the office kegerator, and spend the remainder of my day tagging pages in Pendo. Since […]

5 Habits of Customer-Focused Product Teams Image

5 Habits of Customer-Focused Product Teams

Thursday, March 28 | 11:00 a.m. PT (2:00 p.m. ET) Building customer-centric products isn’t a trend, it’s a necessity. When Northwestern Mutual acquired Learnvest, it wasn’t to mold them into their ways of thinking—actually, it was the opposite. They wanted Learnvest’s innovative and customer-centric practices to improve their legacy company. Kimberly Tzeng, senior product manager at Learnvest, was tasked with spearheading the revamping efforts of Northwestern Mutual’s website. She knew it would take more than just data to build a product that suited the needs of stakeholders and users alike. To build a successful product, they needed to be in tune with their customer’s needs. Join us on Thursday, March 28 at 11 a.m. PT (2:00 p.m. ET) to hear the five habits her team uses to deliver a customer-focused product experience.
