    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.
  • 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.

    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.

New Research: Customer Success Is Critical to Growth in the Digital Era Image

New Research: Customer Success Is Critical to Growth in the Digital Era

How many of us have heard a business claim “our key differentiator is that we’re very focused on the customer?” And how often has that claim lined up with reality? It’s one thing to say you’re customer-centric. It’s another to put it into practice. Savvy business leaders have long understood that a certain level of customer-centricity is just table stakes. Fool me twice and all that. But that barebones level of focus on the customer usually translated into sporadic, pre-sale oriented, and ill-defined actions. Over the past few years, however, that’s changed rapidly. The rise of digital business has added urgency to—and rigor around—the concept of customer-centricity. But one thing missing from this whole conversation on customer centricity, customer obsession, and customer success has been data. Is this happening in a way that can be measured? What are the actual figures around these trends? What’s the pace of change and what can we reasonably infer about the future? To quantify the shift in the digital era, Gainsight commissioned Forrester Consulting to take a closer look at what they’ve dubbed “the age of the customer” and how today’s digital business climate has elevated customer success to a mission-critical growth function. We […]

Why Customer Success Teams Are Using Aptrinsic Image

Why Customer Success Teams Are Using Aptrinsic

We don’t have a handle on how each customer is using the product. We need to scale our customer onboarding. Our biggest challenge is product adoption. These challenges are nothing new to Customer Success (CS). But as SaaS becomes the global standard for delivering software, it’s urgent that companies get to the root of the problem. In the Age of the Customer, buyers will hold you accountable for outcomes, and users are increasingly expecting consumer-grade usability and product experience. The world is realizing that to drive Customer Success in a SaaS business, the product plays a central role. No longer just an assemblage of features, the product is a channel to gain key behavioral insights and drive engagement. Bringing the product into your CS strategy isn’t a nice to have in SaaS. It’s a business imperative. Those who don’t recognize the critical bridge between Customer Success and Product will struggle to compete against those who do. For Customer Success teams looking to drive customers to value quickly, to understand user behavior, and to accelerate growth, the product is a great place to start. It provides levers for scale and the foundation for a more holistic Customer Success strategy in the […]

Online Software Reviews: How to Use Them and How to Get Them

Thursday, January 17 | 11:00 a.m. PT (2:00 p.m. ET) Most software buyers already know which product they’re going to purchase long before they ever reach out. How do they know? The same way you know what you’re going to buy on Amazon or which restaurant you choose on Yelp or Google: online reviews. But in the case of SaaS, the impact of these reviews isn’t fleeting—it sets the tone for what you hope will become a years-long relationship that grows and expands as each partner does. You need to have the right people, process, and technology to understand and take advantage of this ecosystem before it takes advantage of you. In this webinar, you’ll hear from Marie Macbain, VP of Research Operations at G2 Crowd, on how to make better use of online reviews in your purchasing decisions as well as get actionable best practices to inform your strategy with regards to online reviews. Then Amanda Meinert, Manager of Customer Marketing at Gainsight, will give you some evidence-based tactics to get more and better online reviews by activating advocates with right-time, right-message communications.
