PHASE 1: CUSTOMER SEGMENTATION

Properly align your Customer Success resources to your highest value and highest potential accounts.

 

Aligning the right talent in your Customer Success organization to your top accounts is the fastest way to ensure retention and drive growth. Having a deep understanding of your customer’s ability to spend (and over what time frame) ensures that you align resources accordingly.
