It takes more than technology to align your customer-facing teams around successful outcomes. It takes effective, tested processes. It takes Gainsight's prescriptive Customer Success Elements.

  • 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


    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.
  • 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.
  • Heather Hansen


    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.

Gainsight Essentials: A One-Click Configuration for Small CSM Teams Image

Gainsight Essentials: A One-Click Configuration for Small CSM Teams

I remember what it was like to be at Gainsight in the early days. We were around $1 million in annual recurring revenue. It was early—and it felt early. Our office was in a loft above a bar, which shared our address. Sometimes clients would show up at the bar, and the bartender would know to tell them, go around the corner, find the door next to the alley, and go up the back staircase. That’s where Gainsight was. But the team did wonders with the bare bones space that we had. There were our now “vintage” Sally and the Churnbot children’s books in the entryway that kind of served as a lobby, in case kids happened to stop by. There was a sleep nook that was separated from the printer by some streamers. We pushed our desks aside to have karaoke parties—which would ultimately become a cultural hallmark. Back then, a single thought ran through my head all day: How do I achieve more with less? How do we prioritize all these prospect accounts in our database without taking weeks to implement a lead scoring solution? How can our sales development team call 2x the number of prospects without […]

Gainsight Elements: The Science of Customer Success Image

Gainsight Elements: The Science of Customer Success

Let me take you back to when I was 10 years old. Yup, I rocked those bangs. I was also super shy. I had an A+ average, but my teachers told my parents that I never participated. I was a great athlete, but I was nervous to go to soccer camp because it meant I’d have to meet new people. I had a tight circle of close friends, but even they sometimes wondered aloud what I was thinking about when I had that dream-like expression on the playground, since I didn’t typically share what was on my mind. I was generally anxious, and settled for being known as the “nice" person. But it didn’t feel good. I felt bottled up, untrue to myself. And that didn’t serve my friends or community. Things changed when my parents saw my fourth grade report card. All the scores were high except for “Participation.” Thinking that I had a lot more to contribute, my parents encouraged me to visit a new school, which happened to be an all-girls school. I came home from a day-long visit and sobbed. “Mom, the girls are so mean there!”“What happened?”“They are loud. They talk constantly. They’re scary.”“It sounds […]

The Brief Moments In Time Image

The Brief Moments In Time

Sad fact: Some of the most profound moments of my life have happened on United Airlines red eye flights. While I may have a love-hate (or rather hate-hate) relationship with the incessant yet “unexpected” flight delays, increasingly tiny legroom in Economy “Plus,” and “No-Go” in-flight WiFi, the sheer exhaustion of overnight flights forces my brain into a contemplative state. Credit: Paramount Pictures And I’ve done a ton of red eyes. I don’t count because the number would be too brutal, but it’s definitely several hundred. As I’m leaning on the cold window of seat 9F trying to sleep, I end up in a recurring loop of thoughts: Envy and anxiety about the friend’s company that just got bought for a ton of money, or about the college classmate who seems to be “killing it.” Longing to have been at the school event for my kids and to trade FaceTime for the real thing. Wonder at the billions of stars that beckon from the window of my window seat. I only know myself really… but I like to think—or perhaps hope—in a shared-pain-sort-of-way that we all have those moments: the WTF-AM-I-DOING-WITH-MY-LIFE moments. The IS-IT-ALL-WORTH-IT refrains in the cacophony of the day. And some of […]

Customer Success + Marketing: How to Team Up to Boost Advocacy

Advocacy—it’s the secret sauce of successful companies. Customers create important social proof that accelerates deal cycles, generates demand, and fortifies your company’s brand.

You can operationalize processes to consistently convert successful customers into engaged advocates, creating meaningful gains in core metrics from NPS to CSAT to pipeline and expansion dollars and much more. In this webinar, you’ll get real-world cross-functional plays that will help you reach out to customers at key moments in the life cycle for advocacy actions like contributions to case studies, webinars, videos, online reviews, and other valuable assets. Join Howard Tarnoff (Founder & Managing Director of Customer Success LLC) and Carlos Gonzalez (Vice President of Customer Success Operations at Ceridian) as they reveal the advocacy playbooks they used to: Close deals faster and drive up margins Reduce burdens on Support through a thriving community Reduce time-to-value and increase “stickiness” Mobilize successful customers to advocacy actions And much more
