Gainsight Partners with Product School
Gainsight Partners with Product School to Offer Product-Led Growth Micro-Certification Course

Free course covers PLG essentials with hands-on experience powered by Gainsight PX

San Francisco, California (August 4, 2022) Gainsight has partnered with Product School, the global leader in Product Management Training, to offer an online course and micro-certification in Product-led Growth (PLG). The free course has been designed for Product Management professionals who want to play a more strategic role in driving growth for their companies and enhance their PLG skill sets.

PLG has changed the game for SaaS vendors that are looking to transition into a more durable growth strategy. Product-led growth companies are now growing at a rate that is 2x faster than traditional SaaS companies—yet it is still very aspirational for most businesses. Thus, the future success of many organizations will rely on product organizations more than ever.

This will require product teams to not only lead in product development, but in driving cross-functional business outcomes that put the product at the center of the customer experience, from acquisition to expansion. This new responsibility will require product leaders to attain new skills and develop a new way of thinking.

Gainsight and Product School have partnered to create a self-paced learning course on how to apply PLG strategies to launch in-product experiments and make more effective, data-driven roadmap decisions

The online course, which is available now, consists of five sections: Getting Started with PLG; Setting Your PLG Strategy Up for Success; Acquiring and Converting Customers Using the Product; PLG Strategies to Drive Adoption and Stickiness; and Prioritizing your Roadmap for Growth. The immersive course has been designed to include both theoretical and practical elements with hypothetical scenarios that require participants to implement PLG playbooks. Participants also get hands-on experience using the Gainsight PX platform to analyze product usage data, drive in-product experiments, and build a feedback loop.

Upon completion of the course, participants will have achieved both a practical and theoretical understanding of PLG, along with a Product-Led Growth Micro-Certification from Gainsight and Product School. Since course enrollment opened up earlier this month, nearly 6000 Product Management professionals have signed up.

“Over the past decade, PLG has evolved from a niche strategy to a core component of software company business plans,” said Carlos Gonzalez de Villaumbrosia, CEO of Product School. “Gainsight and Product School have been at the forefront of helping software companies understand and implement PLG, and we are excited to share lessons learned and best practices with the next generation of Product Management professionals.”

“This course is a terrific opportunity for Product Management professionals to practice basic growth tactics and experience the role of a modern Product Manager firsthand,” said Mickey Alon, CTO and Founder of Gainsight PX at Gainsight. “Our course was developed by product professionals with real-world experience developing and executing PLG initiatives, and this certification aims to get participants up to speed quickly on the latest and most effective PLG strategies.”

Gainsight is hosting Pulse, its premiere fully hybrid conference for business leaders and practitioners in the fields of Customer Success, Product, and Community at the Moscone Center in San Francisco on August 17th and 18th. Register for Pulse here.

Gainsight Expands Further Into Asia-Pacific with Japan Cloud Partnership

The company already has significant traction in Japan where interest in customer success is on the rise 

San Francisco, California (May 23, 2022) Gainsight announces a partnership with Japan Cloud, making it easier for companies in the Asia-Pacific region to adopt Gainsight customer success solutions, drive greater net revenue retention, expand accounts, and reduce churn. The partnership represents a full-scale entry into APAC, in response to the rise of new SaaS business models that have ignited the demand for customer success.

Demand for Gainsight software has grown at an accelerated pace in recent years. The company had record revenue growth in its 2022 fiscal year which closed in January. It also expanded its customer base, completed a strategic acquisition of community platform inSided, grew its employee count, and enhanced its products in FY’22, most notably with the launch of Gainsight Essentials, which simplifies and streamlines the adoption of Gainsight CS for companies of all sizes. 

APAC represents significant growth potential for Gainsight, which has been selling internationally for several years and has multiple customers in the region.

“Sansan was among Japan’s first companies to apply customer success to maximize long-term value for its users. Partnering with Gainsight helps us digitally transform companies for improved customer health, more efficient implementations, and greater business success. We will advance the use of Gainsight to respond to business changes and further advance our customers’ success and innovation,” says Kei Tomioka, Chief Revenue Officer of Sansan, Inc.

Companies everywhere are aggressively investing in software-as-a-service models that require a company-wide, dedicated customer success initiative. Last month Gainsight reported that churn reduction and product adoption were top priorities for high-growth companies. 

Japan Cloud is the leading platform for market entry in the region, with a track record of scaling global enterprise software companies in the Japanese market including BlackLine, Braze, and Coupa.

“We are pleased to be a part of Gainsight’s expansion into the Japanese market through this strategic alliance,” said Yasutaka Fukuda, Board Member of Gainsight Japan and CEO of Japan Cloud Consulting​​.”We believe that the Gainsight platform offers a powerful set of Customer Success solutions which have been adopted by many global companies, and will become essential to Japanese businesses as well.”

“We are super excited to take this next step and expand our global presence with a formal move into Japan,” said Jeff Depa, Chief Revenue Officer of Gainsight. “The Japanese market has incredible passion for driving customer success and is built on a foundation of human-first thinking. We’re grateful to be partnering with Japan Cloud to help accelerate our launch and demonstrate our commitment to the local market.”  

The Gainsight office in Japan will be located in Tokyo. A local executive team will be appointed to drive business in the region, and the company plans to expand its footprint with an aggressive growth and hiring plan.
