    [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.

    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.

4 Ways Product Teams Can Make Customers More Successful Image

4 Ways Product Teams Can Make Customers More Successful

We all know how it works…a fledgling SaaS company releases a minimally viable product and starts bringing on customers. Early customers help shape the direction of the product and before you know it, a Customer Success team is created. The CSMs start doing Executive Business Reviews (EBRs) and the product road map is the crutch used to schedule the meeting. But after a while, the customer (or more likely, their executives) start to skip EBRs as they would rather talk about how others are using your product than features that are months out or are not relevant to them. That’s not to say the road map isn’t valuable. Certainly, prior to the renewal is an opportunity to dive into it. Or if you know a customer can take advantage of a feature, absolutely talk about it. But as Allison Pickens writes, if your CSM team is just filling in product gaps, it’s probably not driving growth. Over the past few years, we’ve started to see thought leadership on the unique relationship between Product Management and Customer Success. Most recently, it culminated with Gainsight’s rollout of the PX Product Experience Platform. As customer success becomes more and more established, the relationship between […]

The Best Way to Boost Your Customer Success Career Image

The Best Way to Boost Your Customer Success Career

So it’s starting to look like a pretty ingenious career move to get into the customer success profession. On LinkedIn’s latest jobs report—the most promising jobs of 2019—Customer Success Manager clocked in at number six. And that’s all part of a larger, worldwide trend toward customer success as a new frontier of business—and gainful employment. It’s got an 80% year-over-year growth rate in the U.S., it’s the sixth fastest growing job in India and number one overall in Australia. And with a median base salary of $88,500 and a Career Advancement Score of 9 out of 10, it’s looking more and more like you hit the jackpot if you’re already in the field. But what if 9 out of 10 isn’t good enough for you? What if instead of a rocket ship you’d rather have the Millenium Falcon? Gainsight Admin Certification is our top tactic to fast-track your career growth. And yeah, that’s a sales pitch, but we’ve got some pretty solid reasoning behind it. Why you should get certified as a Gainsight Admin A new report from Forrester found that 80% of companies surveyed have invested in customer success technology.

How to Prevent Blind-Side Churn by Identifying and Aligning With Customer Stakeholders Image

How to Prevent Blind-Side Churn by Identifying and Aligning With Customer Stakeholders

I frequently hear from customer success and sales leaders that two of the most common reasons for churn or downsell (revenue compression) are executive/sponsor change and lack of perceived value (for your product/service). When I dig into this some more, the most actionable root causes turn out to be a few things: We are not aware of the shifting priorities at our customers’ businesses (hence we cannot keep up with change in what “value” means to them). We are not top of mind with executives. We are not talking to multiple levels and key influencers (e.g., IT) within the customer org. We are blindsided when sponsors leave (especially in our volume or SMB segments). So I decided to get tactical by sharing our perspective on a framework for Stakeholder Alignment (it’s called the Executive Sponsorship program in many companies) and how to operationalize it. “As your customers change priorities and shift strategies, maintaining alignment with their executives and decision makers becomes paramount. With Stakeholder Alignment, Gainsight helps you set up a regular process for executive check-ins, monitor when there are organizational changes, and keep an eye on stakeholder sentiment over time. We need to keep the #humanfirst approach to keep interactions as […]

The Case for User-Level Onboarding in the Age of the Customer Image

The Case for User-Level Onboarding in the Age of the Customer

The majority of churn events can trace their origins to botched customer onboardings. It’s hard to overstate how important a rock-solid onboarding process is—and it’s just as hard to overstate how difficult that is to achieve. Why is it so difficult? Most companies onboard at the account level, even though it’s ultimately end users who need onboarding. But that’s where you run into scalability issues. So what’s the answer? Gainsight is proud to partner with Skilljar, Conversica, and Coastal Cloud to address this mission-critical issue. Join us for a can’t-miss webinar that will make the case for user-level onboarding and give you a strategy and a process to scale it across your customer base. Featuring: Travis Kaufman, VP Product Growth, Gainsight Jamey Jeff, Managing Director – Customer Success Solutions, Coastal Cloud Brian Kaminski, Chief Customer Officer, Conversica Linda Schwaber-Cohen, Product Marketing, Skilljar In this webinar, you’ll learn: How to leverage and optimize different onboarding channels. How to balance automation with personal touch to scale without sacrificing results. How to create a “continuous onboarding” strategy as opposed to a one-time process. And much more!
