New Study Proves Gainsight Drives Millions in Revenue for Growth Companies

560 Percent Company Growth and New Investment Validate Gainsight's Dominance in the Customer Success Industry

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/14/14 -- Gainsight, the leading Customer Success Management solution, today revealed the results of its latest study, Measuring the ROI of Customer Success Management Solutions, which found that investments in Customer Success Management (CSM) technology has been accelerating as business leaders recognize that customer success is the primary driver of long-term business performance, reinforcing Gainsight's market lead. Gainsight also announced today an investment from salesforce.com, further propelling Gainsight's dedicated mission to increase its clients' customer lifetime value by driving retention and up-sell revenue in the $500 billion Subscription Economy. These achievements reflect the rapidly increasing demand for Gainsight's next generation Customer Success Management solution, as demonstrated by the company's 560 percent year-over-year growth in 2013 and new enterprise customers including Adobe Echosign, Apttus, Callidus Cloud and BMC.

"Customers aren't just buying a product these days -- they are buying both an experience and a business model," said R "Ray" Wang, Principal Analyst and Chairman, Constellation Research, Inc. "If organizations want to survive and thrive in the Subscription Economy, SaaS and other recurring revenue organizations must harness the power of Customer Success Management solutions to solve the mission critical problem of customer churn. Smart organizations are rapidly adopting CSM solutions and building Customer Success teams to drive revenue."

Study Shows Impressive ROI for Customer Success
In the Measuring the ROI of Customer Success Management Solutions study of Customer Success professionals from high growth recurring revenue companies, Gainsight explains in detail the value of investment in Customer Success Management and quantifies the revenue and cost savings impact as reported by companies that have adopted Gainsight's highly scalable CSM solution:

  • $11 Million in Retention Revenue by Reducing Churn. Companies that have adopted CSM programs reported a significant boost in sales revenue as they retained more customers. The typical Gainsight customer saw $11 million in additional revenue from increased retention over a three-year period.
  • $1.2 Million in Increased Up-Sell Revenue. In addition to retention-driven revenue benefits, the study estimated that Gainsight-enabled up-selling and cross-selling (including compliance-related sales) will add approximately $100,000 per quarter, or $1.2 million over three years for a typical Gainsight customer.
  • $5 Million Savings in Operational Expenses From Scaling Customer Success Teams. Beyond revenue enhancement, companies in the study reported significant cost-cutting benefits from adopting automated CSM solutions, averaging between $1 million and $5 million per year in operational savings when compared to manual CSM programs. For example, companies that adopted Gainsight, which comes with an automated reporting engine, found that managers spent about 95 percent less time preparing reports, or nearly two hours per report, on average.

"At Apttus, our customers come first as they are the key to our company's prosperity and growth," said Sue Fellows, vice president of Global Customer Excellence at Apttus. "As Apttus is built entirely on the Salesforce1 Platform, Gainsight was a natural choice for us since it seamlessly integrates with Salesforce. With Gainsight, we'll have complete visibility into our customer base by gathering all of our customer data into a single platform with a 360-degree view of customers individually and in aggregate. Based on the impact Gainsight is making on other leading companies' bottom lines through driving retention and up-sell revenue, we're excited to experience the ROI Gainsight's CSM platform will deliver."
