How Customer Education Drives Engagement, Retention, and Revenue
Today, your customers have the world at their fingertips, with access to more choices and more information than ever before. Especially if your organization is among the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and technology sectors, and alongside the rise of the subscription economy, it’s imperative that you get the customer relationship right from the start.
Providing a great customer experience is no longer a nice-to-have for your business; it’s table stakes. Customer Education is one of the best ways to help you cultivate meaningful, long-term relationships with your customers.
Reduce time to value and drive customer and partner effectiveness
If your business wants to stay competitive, it’s not enough for customers to purchase your product; customers (and their employees and partners) must also understand how to use, and derive value from it.
Through the creation and dissemination of tailored, on-demand resources, companies can equip customers with the information and skills to achieve their business goals, and in turn, improve customer retention and promote expansion.

I think of Skilljar as a platform that supports the customer journey. Skilljar isn’t just the place that hosts all of your content and lets you run reports to see the courses that people are accessing and their completion rates. It also lets you guide your customers to specific content based on their tenure, our product, and our understanding of their needs.
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.

We've seen our customer satisfaction really increase. The journey from entering into our training portal through choosing what content to purchase, purchasing that content and then ultimately completing the course - it is so much more seamless now. We've been able to take so much of the effort out of that process and we hear that feedback from our customers all the time - how easy it was for them to find what they needed, and take it immediately.
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.

The benefit of Skilljar is that it's extendable and scalable. I know that it's going to grow with us as we deliver content to more learning communities. I know it. I don't have any doubt about that.
Reduce support costs
Scale training resources to increase satisfaction and self-sufficiency
As your customer base grows, you are likely to see an accompanying increase in support tickets and repetitive questions that can quickly overload your Support Team and slow their response time.
A strong Customer Education program can help reduce the burden on your Customer Success and Support Teams by offering on-demand training content that addresses key problem areas. As a result, CSMs and Support will see fewer inbound tickets, which means they can resolve other, more unique issues that come up more quickly, and with fewer resources.
