Why should you have Customer Success?

Customer Success

For SaaS companies today, there are many aspects of their business to consider when creating and measuring success. What Saas businesses do not realize is that excelling in Customer Success (CS) can be a key component to low churn rates and successful business growth.

That means eighty percent eighty ninety percent of your potential lifetime value of the customer is still locked in the retention cycle. Hence it is the retention cycle and not the acquisition cycle that decides if you will make money as a business if you are able to keep that customer.
