    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.

    Ceridian

    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.

    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.

6 Ways Customer Success Is Showing up in Non-Tech Companies Image

6 Ways Customer Success Is Showing up in Non-Tech Companies

You’ve probably heard this one before: A Customer Success Manager, an Internet of Things Engineer, and a Management Consultant walk into a bar… Okay, maybe not! But that triumvirate seems to be showing up frequently in historically non-digital businesses as the trend of “Software Eating the World” advances unabatedly. Who knows? Maybe someday soon Customer Success jokes will be as ubiquitous as science jokes! After all, we’re already seeing consistent behavior trends outside of traditional tech companies. I’ve noticed the following fact pattern over and over again: 1. Cherished Brands Are Buying SaaS Companies and Getting CSM Teams Whether it’s Monsanto purchasing Climate Corporation, Caterpillar buying Yard Club, or Walmart gobbling up Jet.com, decades-old enterprises are looking to reinvent themselves by getting into the cloud world. Many of them have read The Innovator’s Dilemma and realized that often you have to look externally to find “innovation DNA.” As these businesses unpack the gift boxes that are these new startups, they’re seeing roles that they’re familiar with (Sales, Marketing, Engineering) and also one that’s brand new: “Customer Success Management.” Many of these acquirers go through a standard exercise of trying to shoehorn CSM into existing Maintenance, Support, and Services orgs, only to realize […]

Acquiring Customers Isn’t Enough. Here’s Why You Need to Focus on Retention. Image

Acquiring Customers Isn’t Enough. Here’s Why You Need to Focus on Retention.

Cost of Retention vs. Customer Acquisition Cost. It’s a classic match-up. They’re both essential players, but when it comes to healthy growth, which one of these best practices should you be betting on? In the early days of SaaS, growing fast was everything. Money was poured into customer acquisition and businesses took off left and right, turning into unicorns before our eyes. But times are changing. Acquiring new customers isn’t the only way to bring in revenue, in fact, focusing primarily on that side of the funnel may be more costly in the long run. Cost of Retention vs. Customer Acquisition Cost “SaaS CEOs must move beyond just looking at revenue growth and eventual profitability, and start digging one level deeper for ways to grow in more capital-efficient ways and find a shorter path to profitability.” – Fred Shilmover, CEO, InsightSquared Chances are these terms are familiar to you—they’re pretty common in SaaS and business in general—but here’s a quick refresher: Cost of Retention: The total amount spent on keeping customer renewing their contracts. It includes costs like your Customer Success team, technology, and customer experience program. Our Customer Success metrics calculator makes finding your Cost of Retention easy work. Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC): The […]

What I Learned from CCO Summit Europe Image

What I Learned from CCO Summit Europe

We’ve done the Chief Customer Officer Summit, which we affectionately refer to as “CCO” four times in the US. It has been phenomenally successful, with our NPS ranging from 85 to 94 for those four events. So we decided to bring it to Europe last week and the results were no less amazing. 40+ leaders of Customer Success organizations around Europe made the trip to Horsham, UK for a one-and-a-half day event at the South Lodge hotel. Attendees included leaders from companies ranging from 20 employees and £2M ARR to 10,000+ employees and multi-billion pounds of turnover. This continues to be one of the more amazing things about Customer Success and this event in particular—there’s lots of common ground even between the people on the extremes of that spectrum. Oftentimes, the larger companies are more anxious to talk to smaller counterparts than to their peers because the changing landscape in the tech industry has turned the world upside-down, and the disruptors have expertise and knowledge that traditional companies are intensely interested in hearing. CCO is an event unlike any other. There are no big-name speakers or expert panels to attract attendees. In fact, if you judged it only by the […]
