  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

What Pulse Europe 2018 Taught Us About Customer Success in EMEA Image

What Pulse Europe 2018 Taught Us About Customer Success in EMEA

Cheers, mate! The fourth annual Pulse Europe has come and gone and we feel pretty full of doughnuts, ice cream, and Customer Success best practices. Thanks to everyone that joined us for these two days (three days if you attended Pulse Academy Live) of discovery and fun. In case you missed it, or just want to relive the magic, we’ve summed up some memorable moments and takeaways from Pulse Europe 2018. There were so many of them, it was challenging, but here goes! Like the universe, Customer Success is always expanding We were beyond stoked to have Professor Brian Cox speak at this year’s event. He shared the many ways we think about the creation of our universe and our place in it. While some of us were reminded how little we actually paid attention in science class, we were also reminded of how far Customer Success has gone on its journey in Europe. Just like the universe, Customer Success is constantly growing and everyone within it is trying to understand their place in the grand scheme of things. Customer Success was created by recurring revenue businesses with the need to retain customers—think of this as the industry’s “big bang.” Since […]

Gainsight Just Acquired Aptrinsic: Here’s What’s Next Image

Gainsight Just Acquired Aptrinsic: Here’s What’s Next

It’s been three weeks since we acquired Aptrinsic, and we’re just now getting our heads above the waves of conversations and opportunities that the announcement spurred. One question that surfaced a number of times: as a company that’s branded around Customer Success, what is Gainsight doing to preserve Aptrinsic’s high velocity and orientation towards Product? The question behind the question is: “The Aptrinsic product, team, and message resonates with me. Is that going to change now that they’re part of Gainsight?” No, it’s not. In fact, we chose Aptrinsic because their product, team, and message is something we want to amplify, not change. As we completed our due diligence on Aptrinsic, we were blown away by the quality of their team and product. It is a lean group of high achievers: Engineering and Product team members average over 10 years of relevant experience, carry deep domain knowledge, and have followed Mickey through multiple companies. Sales, Marketing, and Customer Success have found viral traction in just a year in-market. This is a team that’s kicking butt. We’re excited to double down on that. While Gainsight and Aptrinsic both see an opportunity for something greater by coming together, we’re keeping the teams […]

Does NPS Correlate to Churn? Image

Does NPS Correlate to Churn?

Roses are red. Violets are blue. NPS is a leading indicator for retention—except it’s just not true. It’s often taken for granted (even among long-time Customer Experience (CX) professionals) that Net Promoter Score (NPS) survey results correlate positively to retention. Sure, it may not tell you why a customer is happy or not happy. It may not provide any prescriptive actions for you to take, but it’s valuable because it’s one of the few basic metrics that’s truly predictive of future behavior—the likelihood a customer will retain. But there are two main problems with that assumption: The NPS survey was never designed to predict churn The data does not support the idea of correlation to retention. You can find out a lot more about NPS here, but the basic premise of it is a single survey question that asks a customer to rate how likely it is they’ll recommend a given product or service to a friend or colleague on a scale of zero to 10. Nines and 10s are considered “promoters,” sevens and eights are “neutral,” and anything lower is a “detractor.” Take the percentage of promoters minus the percentage of detractors, and wham bam—you’ve got yourself an NPS score.

How to Onboard at Scale Without Sacrificing Personal Touch Image

How to Onboard at Scale Without Sacrificing Personal Touch

Tuesday, November 27 | 11:00 a.m. PT (2:00 p.m. ET) If you want to make more money, you need to get more customers. It’s a simple fact. But all those new customers need to be onboarded well so they adopt, expand, and ultimately renew. And that means you need to scale. You won’t be able to onboard customers at a one-to-one ratio—at least not for long. But for many companies—especially ones with complicated or comprehensive products—that means accepting that your onboarding quality will suffer; the only question is how much. Don’t accept that! You can scale up your onboarding process without being forced to give up personal touch. Gainsight’s VP Aptrinsic Marketing, Travis Kaufman, as he walks you through a tested system for growing your onboarding capabilities while still engaging with customers in a way that feels personal to them. In this webinar, you’ll learn how to: Guide your users to “a-ha” moments in your product Create “release experiences” to introduce new features Re-engage users to complete critical tasks And much more!

And how do you do it at scale? There are three pain points to product adoption in SaaS and there are three key strategies to overcome them. Join Gainsight’s COO and CTO of Aptrinsic, Allison Pickens and Mickey Alon, as they reveal the keys to better product adoption.
