    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.
  • Howard Tarnoff

    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.

    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.

6 Terms to Know Before You Start Product Planning Image

6 Terms to Know Before You Start Product Planning

Planning your product roadmap? You should know these six key terms before putting pencil to paper. What is Product Planning? Product planning is the process of mapping out a product from idea to launch. It encompasses all of the steps and tasks that product managers take to make sure that a product is successful once it’s on the market. Product planning isn’t just a one-and-done type of activity. For product managers, product planning is part of their day-to-day and should be thought of as an ongoing strategy. From deciding on what kind of features your product will have, to setting achievable target revenue goals, product planning takes into account all internal decisions that go into making a product that will keep your customers satisfied. In order to make sure the process goes smoothly, it’s important to have an understanding of certain common product planning terms your peers in the SaaS industry are using. What is a Product Management Roadmap? Product management roadmaps provide PM teams with a visual guide that clearly demonstrates the vision and direction of a product from start to finish. A product roadmap will help you define what makes your product “successful.” Product management roadmaps help to keep […]

How I Use Gainsight PX as a SaaS CEO Image

How I Use Gainsight PX as a SaaS CEO

It turns out that where you got your MBA isn’t a predictor of your success as a CEO. Actually, neither is your past performance! At least, that’s if you use stock prices as a yardstick for success. You can read all about the lack of correlation in this fascinating data analysis from Institutional Investor—I recommend it. I can imagine a CEO potentially feeling threatened by results like this, but I was super encouraged. Business is a team game; it’s not about one person. But it does leave you with an interesting conundrum if you happen to be a CEO: What does it mean to be a good CEO? I think that’s changing too. I’ll get to that, but I think we need to understand why it’s changing first. Business has changed. CEOs need to change too. The move to the cloud and to software-as-a-service (SaaS) models changed a lot of things about business. Companies had to rethink product development to embrace Agile and DevOps. Organizations had to restructure to support higher velocity and more streamlined sales and marketing models. And leaders reimagined service and support in the era of customer success. But for CEOs, one of the most fundamental changes about the job […]

The In-App Engagement Starter Kit Image

The In-App Engagement Starter Kit

Helping customers is good. Pestering them is bad. How do you strike a balance when talking to them inside your product? In-app engagements can significantly boost user retention, but overuse them and they’ll hurt your product experience more than they help. In this starter kit for product professionals, we’ll share our rules of engagement for in-app messages and how we create them. What exactly is an in-app engagement? In-app engagements are customer outreaches that happen within a product. They can give instructions, inform users of support issues, capture sentiment, and so much more. Examples of in-app engagements include product status messages, tutorials and guides, new feature announcements, and surveys. A complete in-app engagement strategy requires two things: technology and structure. Technology is necessary to deploy the in-app engagements and a framework, like the one below, will help you map out when, where, and how often your engagements should occur. We use Gainsight PX to drive in-app engagements inside our customer success platform. But like we said above, tech is just half of it. Before you do anything, you need to create a charter to ensure your efforts add to the user experience not detract from it. The TRUSt Framework: Gainsight’s in-app promise […]
