Improve customer health & increase retention

Build long-term revenue with lifetime customers and partners

  • With the shift towards the Subscription Economy, the customer relationship is paramount. Companies must constantly work to maintain their customer base and focus on the overall customer relationship to drive renewals and expansions. For technology companies in particular, lifetime value is based on a strong foundation of active, engaged users who understand the value of your product and experience that value regularly.
  • A strong Customer Education program promotes greater rates of retention and expansion, as well as lower churn rates. When customers understand how to continuously derive value from your product via training, they are more likely to renew their contracts and become more loyal over time.

Scale Your Customer Success Team

Better support your growing customer base while maintaining training consistency

  • In the early days, most Customer Success teams embrace a personalized approach for each customer. While this approach helps the team identify patterns and best practices, it’s not scalable as the business grows and the number of customers expands. As your customer base grows, you’re also likely to see diversity in terms of needs and future growth potential.
  • The right investments in Customer Education can be a game-changer in your scaling efforts and set you up for sustained long-term success. By providing access to on-demand training, you can both support more customers and create a faster, more consistent onboarding process. In supplying your customers with the right content exactly when they are seeking it, you help build the customer relationship and pave the way for long-term customer success.
