    [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.
  • Howard Tarnoff

    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.
  • 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.

    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.

Synecdoche and SaaS: What Title Should the Customer Success Leader Have? Image

Synecdoche and SaaS: What Title Should the Customer Success Leader Have?

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” – William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet (II, ii, 1-2) “If names be not correct, language is not in accordance with the truth of things. If language be not in accordance with the truth of things, affairs cannot be carried on to success.” – Lao-Tse, The Analects of Confucius (Chapter 13) A while back, I wrote about the cognitive dissonance we have between the way we think about Customer Success and the way we talk about it—specifically, the names and titles we use. As the two quotes above illustrate, there are a lot of ways to think about names and what they mean. And the reality is that when I speak with leaders of “post-sales” in B2B businesses, one of the most candid, often “hushed” questions I get (especially over a glass of wine) is, “What should my title be?” If this were a classic tech blog post, I would give you about 1,000 words leading up to the provocative conclusion that “it depends.” But we decided to strive for more and make Confucius proud. We decided we needed evidence. So we collected data […]

8 Reasons Why Growth-Focused Companies Are Choosing Gainsight Over “Good Enough” Customer Success Solutions Image

8 Reasons Why Growth-Focused Companies Are Choosing Gainsight Over “Good Enough” Customer Success Solutions

This is Part Two of a series on evaluating Customer Success solutions. If you haven’t read Part One, “Settling for a ‘Good Enough’ Customer Success Solution Will Cost You,” check it out here. In our last post, we discussed the risks of settling for a “good enough” Customer Success software solution. Moral of the story: if you settle for a short-term solution that doesn’t put you in a good position to scale, you risk wasting a lot of money and time. For this second installment, we sat down with three Gainsight customers who evaluated dozens of CS solutions to learn more about their thought processes. Why they ultimately chose Gainsight was unique to each business, but their reasoning shared a lot of commonalities. Read on to learn why they decided Gainsight was the right choice. 5 Reasons Why Customers Choose Gainsight Over “Good Enough” Solutions Reason #1: Gainsight Offsets Headcount “With Gainsight, we’re able to gain efficiency and improve the productivity of our existing team. Even at this early stage of adoption and usage, we’re already seeing the benefits. The team now has an identity. Using the same tool, methodology, and processes has created a sense of belonging.

How To Manage GDPR Compliance Using Technology Image

How To Manage GDPR Compliance Using Technology

GDPR-mageddon is behind us, but it’s still an ongoing challenge for IT teams at global companies to manage all the different security and privacy standards for each of their customers and stakeholders. As we transition from implementation mode to operational mode with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the question of how to manage the day-to-day tasks is critical. Our approach has been to leverage existing tools wherever possible. So for instance, we manage the workflow for privacy requests using our standard ticketing system, simply adding some new categories and workflow rules as needed. Of course, we use Gainsight for most customer-focused activities, so it was natural for us to leverage the Gainsight platform to help us manage the Data Privacy Agreement (DPA) process. I wanted to give you a good framework for a technology process to help you with GDPR or really any data security compliance problem. But I also want to showcase the possibilities for IT teams who have a really flexible platform in their toolbox. We were able to manage GDPR implementation in three simple steps inside Gainsight. Managing the DPA Process The DPA is a Data Privacy Agreement that we have to have signed […]
