Customer Success Products - Gainsight

We have completed a product analysis of Gainsight Customer Success based on its product features and offerings, target customers, pricing, pros, and cons. These details have been put together in Row 3 of the attached spreadsheet. "Gainsight offers a powerful SaaS application/platform designed to transform various "customer data from multiple sources into insights and actions that drive measurable business outcomes for its clients."

KEY FINDINGS

  • Gainsight Customer Success offers lots of features including an all-in-one customer data, automated processes, data-driven analytics and alerts, flexibility, all integrated customer service management (CSM), productivity tools, among others.
  • Gainsight offers its Customer Success service to all customers including, SMBs, mid-market, and enterprises.
  • Out of its many pros from product reviewers in G2 and TrustRadius, some prominent reviews include the product's presence of health scores, intuitive graphical user interface (GUI), data analytics in real-time, effective task activity, etc.
  • On the other hand, some cons include a limited email-assist template functionality, missing and difficult integrations, inability to organize email templates, and so on.

RESEARCH STRATEGY

While the information to address this request is mostly and readily available, we could not provide the pricing for the Gainsight Customer Success product. We searched for this data in the company's product page; however, there was none. We only saw that any intending customer would have to contact the company to get a quote. We continued by searching through tech/product review websites because consumers usually offer insights into the price of products they've used, but this was futile, too. Product review sites like Capterra, G2, and TrustRadius all indicated that one would have to contact Gainsight to get a quote. Furthermore, Capterra provided a generic analysis of the perceived cost from 659 reviews as of the time this report was compiled. Its analysis showed that the perceived cost falls in the 92nd percentile for cost — suggesting that the cost is close to being expensive. However, there was no dollar value provided; we entered 'N/A' for this in the attached spreadsheet.

Reviews of churnZero

Research Strategy

We found the features of ChurnZero readily available on the company's website. In order to identify what types of customers ChurnZero serves, we found a list of known customers of ChurnZero and looked into the revenue and employee count of 5 of them. We then used this information to draw conclusions about the type of client ChurnZero serves, as outlined above.

In order to find pricing for ChurnZero, we first looked at the company's website in hopes that they list this information. Unfortunately, ChurnZero does not list pricing on its website and instead encourages potential customers to set up a demo in order to get pricing information. We then searched for third-party information on websites that provide information on different software companies, including Capterra and Get App, but no pricing information was available. Get App does note that the pricing structure is a subscription, but does not give specifics on pricing. Finally, we looked through reviews on ChurnZero on sites such as Trust Radius, G2 and Featured Customers in hopes that someone had posted information on pricing. While we found many reviews of the product, none mentioned price. Based on this information, we concluded that pricing information is not available publicly.

To identify pros and cons of ChurnZero's customer success software, we read through recent reviews of the product on Trust Radius and G2. Due to several reviews noting that ChurnZero makes changes in response to customer feedback on a regular basis, we limited the reviews we read to the last 6 months to avoid including pros or cons that are no longer relevant. We chose pros and cons that were identified by at least two customers in the last 6 months to include in the spreadsheet.

RESEARCH STRATEGY

We found the features of ClientSuccess readily available on the company's website and Capterra. To identify what types of customers ClientSuccess serves, we looked for the sizes of companies listed on their website to know if they were SME, mid-market or enterprise sized companies on website like Crunchbase and Hoovers. Also, we were able to confirm the type of customers using the 'company size' filter on review sites like G2 and Trust Radius. This provided the number of SMB, mid-market and enterprise size companies that provided review feedback which clearly show that the company serves SMB, mid-market and enterprise companies.

Next, we looked for the product's pricing on the company's website, but this was not listed there. We then decided to check through review sites such as Trust Radius, G2, and Capterra with hope to find a user who has posted information about the product's pricing. We did not find any such post, but we were able to find an information provided on the G2 site about ClientSuccess pricing. G2 noted that "ClientSucess did not provide their pricing; hence, the company needs to be contacted for the product price."

To identify the pros and cons of ClientSuccess customer success software, we read through recent reviews of the product on Trust Radius and G2. We limited the reviews we read to those posted within the last six months to avoid reviews that were no longer relevant or contained features that have been updated on the platform. With this, we were able to synthesize the pros and cons noted by more than one user and have put them together above.

We have summarized our findings in the appropriate columns of row 5 of the attached spreadsheet.
