The most successful Enterprise SaaS companies know that growing revenue only through new customer acquisition is the less efficient way to scale. Rather, they understand that growing revenue within your existing customer base - through up-sells, cross-sells, and expanded use - is the most profitable way to scale.
In fact, Enterprise SaaS companies that grow revenue - and company valuation - by expanding revenue within their existing customer base also know the key to making this work is to focus on - and operationalize - Customer Success.
This presentation - Business of Customer Success: Investor and Board Perspective - is focused on how Customer Success must be thought of as much more than just a functional area of a SaaS or Subscription business. Nick Mehta, CEO of Gainsight, and Ajay Agarwal of Bain Capital Ventures, outlined what your board and leadership are looking for at a high-level and how Customer Success plays a significant role in reaching those goals.
The reality of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is that Customer Success must be a tightly-coupled part of your overall business model, or long-term success is in jeopardy. This presentation shows you how to leverage Customer Success to put the odds back in your favor.
