Hello and welcome to the online community for Pulse⚜️ All About Pulse ⚜️ 🎫 Everybody’s got a seat here, Subscribe to this Pulse sub-community and let’s get started! How Pulse startedThe very roots of the industry’s biggest Customer Success conference has always been this idea of nurturing and bringing up a global CS Community.In @nick_mehta’s own wordsPulse grew up not as a “user conference” or a “product event” but as some mix of reunion / revival / therapy session for all of the people in customer success who could, once a year, finally have someone to sit with at lunch. So here we are to:Meet who else is attending PULSE this year with us? What have they been talking about on the Gamechangers community? Maybe we could try to make sense of Track discussions together? Maybe we could sync right here to grab some lunch in the session-breaks?This is the place for all of that to happen.
Who has a great template or tool for mapping out a customer journey?We’re documenting our current journey and making design plans for the future state. While I could cook something up quickly in the Google docs infrastructure, I’d much rather leverage the expertise and experience of the community for something proven.
Hello! I’m working on an overhaul of our customer health scores and reviewing some best practices. I’m looking for ways to measure customer relationship from our CSM perspective. Right now, the score is manually set from 0-100. CSM’s set the score manually. There are no benchmarks to define what the score means (i.e. what does a score of 90 mean?) so the scores are very subjective. I’d like to move to something a bit more consistent and potentially more objective. TIA!
Has anyone received any requests to comply with the right to be forgotten? We are currently working through best methods of executing this and I'm wondering if anyone has come up with best practices or a guide to ensure personal data can be expunged. Our strategy includes overwriting all contact information in SFDC upon request so the only remaining identifier is the ID. It would be great to have a method for executing this in MDA as well without needing to know every place a name or email address has been stored. I'm also curious how best to address this with limited access email opt-out records.
Hi there, We're currently exploring the idea of creating a Scorecard 2.0 to measure and track client health during the implementation stage of our customer lifecycle. Once a client has been fully implemented, we would then move them over to our standard client scorecard. Does anyone have any suggestions or best practices for the types of metrics we should consider using? Here are a couple metrics that come to mind: [list] [*]CSM/IM Sentiment (manually set) [*]Overdue? (determined by implementation playbook) [*]Number of overdue tasks (determined by implementation playbook) [*]Delivery Issues (timeline activities)[/list]Curious to hear about what other people have done in this area. Thanks!
Subscribe to this monthly newsletter here! Hi there,I had three striking experiences recently, and a realization snapped into focus that's proving to be a daily touchstone for me. Here's what happened:I told a story. As part of Gainsight’s celebration of Pride, I wrote a blog post, Why I Keep Coming Out at Work. I merely talked about my life. I was taken aback, though, to get replies that went way beyond messages of support. People told me that my story was meaningful to them. They took something away from it. Our experiences communicate more truth than we realize. We ran a virtual roundtable to offer career coaching to Gainsight Level 1 Certified Associate Administrators. The greatest theme in the feedback survey was: “I want to hear what other admins have done.” (FYI, we’ve published the career stories of eight admins: Anita Beck, Kelly Nissl, Sagan Shirlin, and Katie Baker + Victoria Barry + Patrick McCrudden + Jessica Palmer + Ben Wanless.) When people have the opportunity, they
Generally, there are three options to manage the commercials of existing customers: ALL SALES: Sales Execs lead all commercial activity, while CSMs engage in non-commercial activities (mainly: driving outcomes, usage, and advocacy). UPSELLS vs. RENEWALS SPLIT: Sales Execs lead all new revenue activities (including upsells and cross-sells), while CSMs lead the management of existing commercial engagements, (i.e., renewals) alongside the non-commercial work. ALL CSM: Sales Execs drive sales to “new” customers only, while CSMs manage all commercial activities with existing customers (including both renewals and upsells/cross-sells). Click here to read more about the CS executive perspective that there are ONLY two (2) primary vectors that should influence this decision: The Length of the Sale Cycle The Type of the Upsell

I have created one Success Plan type and when I assigned the type “implementation” while creating SuccessPlan. It didn’t work rather give blank screen.When I created new SuccessPlan Type with same fields,it worked .Can you please advise, what it could be the reason that my first Type” Implementation” is not working rather it was working before?
You can see in the screenshot below that Gainsight seems to be sitting on top of the Salesforce extension. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to deal with this? I’d say we don’t need both extensions, but we’re using the Salesforce add-on for updating contacts (that then sync to GS) and the Gainsight add-on for email templates. Seems like it’d be a pain to constantly be toggling the extensions on and off for a clear view.
Hello Team,In a rule fetch task, on Call to Action(SFDC) object, when we search for reason, we will be able to see Reason and Reason name fields.Similarly, we will be able to see status and status name when searched for status.But in Gainsight NXT, if we want to get Reason name, we have to search for Reason and expand the look-up to select Name.Can we get the feature to show name fields from look-up fields in Gainsight NXT as in Salesforce version of Gainsight.
Changes in Global tab CTA level not reflecting in Company level CTA layout when changes are made at Company level
Hello Team,When we add any fields in CTA layout at Global level, they will be reflected at Company level for that CTA type.But when we add any field directly in Company level CTA layout and then try to add from Global level for that type, new field will not be shown.Can we change this behavior so that whenever we add new field at Global level, they will be updated at Company level irrespective of changes at Company level layout.Thanks & Regards,Srikanth
Mark Roberge of Stage 2 Capital, and Jake Tauscher from G2VP, recently interviewed ~50 leaders at mid-sized SaaS companies, to identify decisions they made that did or did not affect churn. Specifically, they focused on decisions concerning the ‘Customer Success’ function. In the process, they learned: For over 2/3 of the companies interviewed, churn was a key performance metric for a frontline Customer Success Manager. High-growth SaaS businesses have lower churn. Companies that served larger customers ($50M+ in revenue) with larger contracts ($75K+ annually) experienced lower revenue churn. Charging for customer success did not predict churn. Curious to read more of their analysis. Click here for their complete blog post.
A new system Gainsight, wonderful. A new way to work proactively, instead of reactively. What are these Call To Actions (CTAs)? Within the tool, there is an easy way to create an action (task) based on some activity that has occurred or some situation that exists or perhaps there is just some periodic task that should be scheduled. The next bit of information is going to assume the reader is aware of the CTA feature, in general.So what makes a “good CTA?” Without using the canned answer of “it depends”, let me share a couple suggestions around a few specific pieces of a CTA; title, status, priority, type, etc. First of all, don’t just create a CTA because you can. CTAs are easy to create, but one should make sure the CTA has an action that can be taken – hence the name “call to action”. Make sure you are creating a CTA, that has a task or set of tasks that should be completed by the assignee. Creating a CTA, just for awareness, can be valuable, but may end up being clutter in

FileGPS provides enterprise-wide file/transaction monitoring across any application. Many organizations utilize file transfers as a means of communication between B2B partners or between application to application integration; due to various applications involved in handling the end to end process integration, the end to end visibility of the transactions/files are lost, which causes inefficiencies and missed SLA. FileGPS provides the ability to provide enterprise-wide end to end file/transaction monitoring that can track SLA and key events in the processing of the files/transactions. About Pragma Edge INC.
