Introduction of New Capabilities Enable Enterprise-Wide Collaboration on Customer Health
[San Francisco – March 12, 2018] — Gainsight™, the Customer Success company, today announced it delivered another year of record growth fueled by the introduction of a set of breakthrough technologies that further cements its leadership in Customer Success. Gainsight now manages an active roster of customers that, includes 50% of all publicly traded cloud companies, and 60% of top software companies. Over the past three years, Gainsight’s revenue has grown over 1000 percent, and increased its customer base with brands such as Adobe and Workday.
While much of the technology industry has made the transition to SaaS-based or recurring-revenue business models, today the shift is sweeping traditional businesses as well as they embark on digital transformation. According to a 2016 IDC report, by 2018 67% of the 1,000 largest global companies in the world will make digital transformation a key strategic initiative; while a 2017 survey by Gartner showed that 42% of CEOs have begun digitally transforming their business. As a result, businesses are now required to deliver customer outcomes, using software like Gainsight’s Customer Success platform to proactively monitor and manage the health of their customers while driving them toward their desired business outcomes.
“Companies are doubling down on customer-driven growth channels, such as renewals and expansions, as critical to create and grow recurring revenue” said Gainsight CEO, Nick Mehta. “Our growth is attributed to our own focus on the success of our customers — working alongside them to understand customer signals and build prescriptive processes for driving outcomes. Each new feature is a reflection of our commitment to enable Customer Success.”
New Product Capabilities Empower Enterprise-Wide Collaboration on Customer Success
