    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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

What We’re Doing To Improve Inclusiveness and Diversity at Pulse 2019 Image

What We’re Doing To Improve Inclusiveness and Diversity at Pulse 2019

I want to talk about “virtue signaling.” In case you haven’t heard that term, it’s generally meant as a criticism of public displays of morality for self-flattering or self-aggrandizing motives. Some might call it “conspicuous wokeness,” and usually they’re talking about businesses and brands when they do. It’s tough, because I totally understand the impulse behind that criticism. It’s hard to look at something like that infamous Pepsi ad (the one that shows a fake clash between law enforcement and protestors being defused by an ice cold Pepsi) and view it as anything other than a bankrupt exploitation of a deadly serious social issue. On the other hand, I can’t help but thinking of the people behind the brand—all those marketers and PR people and filmmakers and executives and agency people at Pepsi—and wondering about their actual motives. Did they all get together, twirl their mustaches, and try to brainstorm a way to exploit a movement for profit? You’d have to be pretty cynical to believe that. Or did they all come to the project with mostly good or neutral intentions? It’s such a difficult concept to talk about with nuance for an articulate individual, let alone a huge corporate […]

What is a Product Roadmap? Image

What is a Product Roadmap?

A product roadmap is a high-level, visual representation of the direction your product offering will take over time. A good product roadmap will provide your colleagues and stakeholders with the “why” behind your product and should serve the following purposes: Lay out the overarching strategy Provide high-level instructions for executing the strategy Serve as a starting point for discussions on various options and scenarios Align internal stakeholders and facilitate a cohesive message to external stakeholders Maps are a fundamental part of our lives therefore, a product roadmap isn’t exactly a new concept. You can’t get where you want to go if you don’t have a clear direction. Building a product without a roadmap is like setting off for a trip without any idea of a destination. While this sounds like a fun adventure of self-discovery, we guarantee you that doing this with your product will not fill you with an “Eat, Pray, Love” feeling, but more of a “Stress, Scramble, Cry” vibe. Many other departments can use roadmaps as well to ensure they fulfill their duties related to the product. There are even different types of product roadmaps to cater to different needs/end users. The types of product roadmaps we’ll be […]

2019 Pendo Alternatives: 10 Reasons to Choose Gainsight PX Over Pendo

Evaluating software is tough. I’ve gone through the process more times than I can count. In the era of the subscription economy, there are tons of choices in every category and they all claim to be the best—so how do you decide? The only advice I can give is: read the reviews, read the comparisons, read the case studies, and demo everything. Sure, it sounds like work. But you know what’s worse than spending time on demo calls? Buying the wrong software and getting stuck with a product that doesn’t serve your needs. So with that in mind, I wanted to provide a take on Pendo alternatives. This post focuses on 10 areas of Gainsight PX compared to Pendo—but don’t stop the process after you’ve finished. Schedule a demo of Gainsight PX or create a free account and see for yourself if this post is more than just marketing fluff.
