Client Success is a versatile software solution that aids organizations in managing client relationships and tracking customer activities. With its user-friendly interface and robust features, users rely on Client Success to streamline their customer success efforts, track key performance indicators, and measure account success. This platform has been praised for helping teams become more proactive in servicing customers and providing a holistic picture of account health. By leveraging Client Success, multiple teams, including customer success, product, and sales teams, can have a single snapshot of accounts, enabling them to stay organized and prioritize work effectively.

One of the prominent use cases of Client Success is solving the problem of tracking correspondence, engagement, and subscriptions in a systematic way. Users appreciate how this software centralizes critical client information and actions, providing an up-to-date snapshot of account status. This not only helps maintain accountability but also systematizes processes and allows teams to foresee any risks impacting the network's membership. Moreover, Client Success increases productivity through email automation, alerts/actions, and engagement, making it an invaluable training tool for new hires.

Another key use case of Client Success revolves around effective customer management. Users rely on this software to manage and stay on top of client interactions, concerns, and contract details. The platform streamlines account management tactics by tracking customer interactions and providing valuable insights through data analysis. By eliminating manual tracking and offering visibility into customer engagement and success initiatives, Client Success empowers teams to follow up with customers more efficiently while staying organized in their outreach efforts.

Furthermore, Client Success assists in identifying healthy clients based on various health metrics such as contract size, perceived happiness, key contacts, and renewal dates. This provides senior management with valuable assistance in decision-making processes related to customer retention strategies. Additionally, users have found that the software keeps customer success teams focused and customers engaged with the product.

While some users have reported integration issues with Salesforce that led them to stop using Client Success, overall, the experience has been positive. The software effectively captures the health of customers, reduces churn, and drives adoption and engagement. With its reasonable pricing, easy implementation, and smooth onboarding process, Client Success proves to be a valuable asset for organizations seeking to enhance their client relationships and optimize customer success efforts.

Simple and Easy-to-Use Interface: Many users have found the user interface of Client Success to be simple and easy to use, with a friendly design that was quickly learned. This has been appreciated by several reviewers who mentioned how they were able to navigate the platform without much difficulty.

Effective Customer Success Support: Several users have had positive experiences working with the customer success and support teams of Client Success. They have appreciated the prompt response of the customer service team in addressing any questions or challenges faced during the onboarding process. This has helped users feel supported and confident in their use of the software.

Comprehensive Solution for Client Management: Users have praised Client Success for providing a comprehensive solution for managing clients. The platform offers features such as email automation, pulse collection, automated emails and rules, and a Success Score feature that helps grade customers based on custom fields and usage data. These functionalities have allowed users to easily track client progress, prevent churn, and identify upsell opportunities all within one convenient dashboard.

Limitations on Integrations: Some users have mentioned limitations with regard to integrations in ClientSuccess. One specific integration that users have pointed out as missing is their support channel, Groove. This limitation can be a drawback for those who heavily rely on Groove for customer support management and would like it seamlessly integrated into ClientSuccess.

Rigid Reporting in Client Success: Reviewers express frustration with the reporting functionality in Client Success. While they acknowledge that it is robust, they find it fairly rigid and lacking in flexibility. Users are unable to fully customize reports based on certain custom variables, which limits their ability to extract specific insights and metrics from the system.

Lack of Forecasting Report: Several users have noted that there is no client forecasting report available in ClientSuccess. This absence makes generating board-facing reports more manual and time-consuming. Users would prefer a built-in feature that allows them to easily analyze and present client forecasts within the platform.

Users commonly recommend the following when using Clientsuccess:

  • Use it as the main information hub on clients and to track and manage a book of clients.
  • Talk through main goals with a representative before launching and have good organization skills to keep track of contract deadlines.
  • Connect with the team at CS early and often to help influence the product.
  • Ensure smooth integrations and set up the revenue hub.
  • Have a solid understanding of your use case before implementing.
  • Adopt Clientsuccess as much as possible to get value out of the product.
  • Consider it a great CRM platform, especially for managing a low number of high-touch clients.
  • Know where your data lives and how to get it into the system.
  • Appreciate that Clientsuccess has the basics down.

  • Email automation was great because it integrated with current lists to easily send out.
  • Alerts have become a staple at reminding our agents to stay on task and show empathy.
  • The support view takes a few steps to get to the meat and potatoes.
  • The success score model can be improved to include smaller one-off campaigns. Success score is good for a campaign that has existed for a while but not for the one-off projects.

  • Ties together different pieces of information such as usage, costs, tasks, and health all into one place for easy comprehension.
  • Helps me manage the ClientSuccess team and see what needs to be done client by client before churn.
  • Provides an opportunity to scale our processes by applying playbooks (SuccessCycles) to each client.
  • More flexibility on the usage that is shared to the platform without having to manipulate anything on our end first.
  • Great reporting on Client Pulse (a manually set health metric per client) and would love to see even more reporting on overall health scores (success scores) that tie in additional information.

  • Pulse - It is so nice to collect the pulses of my client to know if they are healthy or not. I base a lot of my interactions with clients off of pulse. It shows me how many days it's been since I last had a pulse check on someone and from there I can see if I need to reach out or not.
  • Automated Emails - It's so comforting to know that my clients are being communicated to when I haven't thought to reach out to them. I have set up a lot of automated emails and rules for when they should go out and I've had a lot of clients get in touch with me from it that need.
  • Success Cycles - It has allowed me to set up success cycles for the clients. Because of this, I know exactly how to train them and exactly where they're at in the training process.
  • Score Card - Our company has multiple products that our clients use. There is only the option for one score card so it's hard to get an accurate health score because it's all based on one score card. It would be nice to have multiple score cards like we have multiple success cycles.
  • Emails - It would be nice to be able to send emails from the platform. Also having more freedom in setting up email automation to what rules YOU want not the ones they set for you.
  • Usage - we aren't able to track usage because we have multiple products. It would be nice to be able to integrate all products and be able to track usage from the platform.

  • The Pulse Score is probably my favorite tool. We use that tool monthly to update key client relationships allowing us to quickly save any at-risk accounts.
  • Tracking emails is small but efficient resource. We don't duplicate our work with this feature.
  • The customer service is also really great. Their team has been very quick to respond to questions or challenges we've faced early on as we became comfortable with their product.
  • The only update I would like to see is the ability to reuse success cycles. Once you use a success cycle, you must remove it from the account and apply it again. It would be great to reuse the cycle so we can maintain all of our notes while clients go through the same account management process each year.

  • Renewal tracking/Reporting - in Customer Success this is one of the main KPIs of our industry & the way the software platform is designed allows us to easily present this important information to our CEO. The way the data is pulled so easily & in such a visual way allows us to share information that is very important to the company as a whole.
  • Tracking of Customer Interactions - having email integration, the ability to track notes of calls, etc. allows me to easily reference for future interactions. This is KEY to someone who manages 30+ accounts and keeping track of what each customer's concerns or plans are.
  • "Success Score" - having a way to "grade" our customers based on custom fields, embedding usage data with that score, and being able to track when customers are slipping or doing well. As customers constantly fluctuate this allows our team to be alerted of and try and stay ahead of any underlying issues.
  • It takes awhile to onboard everything into the platform to make it custom to your company, for instance, still working on our side to get the usage of our system piped into ClientSuccess to get that information real-time & applied to the Success Score.

  • UI - the tool is simple and easy to use. For the most part, everything works as expected
  • Team - the CS and support teams are great to work with
  • CSM DNA - the team has a great DNA and experience in customer success, which shows in their product.
  • ClientSuccess could have a stronger health score capability.
  • ClientSuccess' success cycles do not have dates/timelines that automatically adjust so that if one timeline gets shifted, everything "should" move, but it does not.
  • The salesforce integration could be stronger.

  • Allows you to search and sort easily with filters.
  • Has a great "to-do" feature that lets you assign tasks to different team members.
  • Easily helps keep the "pulse" of your clients so you can get real-time feedback on where you are with each account.
  • I'd like to see the expansion of the reporting feature. The more ways to slice & dice data, the better!
  • I'd also like to see the integration of mass email messaging with Outlook. It's something that's in beta-form that I'm looking forward to utilizing.
  • Potentially integrate an accounting feature to invoice directly from the system.

  • Client Success allows our team to create the custom variables that we need to accurately describe and categorize our clients. This was something that was missing in our past tools, and it is extremely helpful for our team.
  • Their notification and alert system help both myself and my team stay on top of meaningful triggers and tasks. The great thing is that you are able to customize when you receive a notification, as well as who else on your team should be included.
  • Our company utilizes multiple contract types and income models, and Client Success has allowed us to track all of them in one location while also producing valuable reports based on each category.
  • There are limitations on their suite of integrations. Currently, the support channel that we use (Groove) is not an available integration, so it limits our team's ability to gain insight into support tickets without channel switching.
  • The reporting in Client Success is robust, but fairly rigid and doesn't allow for fully custom reporting based on certain custom variables.
  • There is not the ability to produce a report based on client forecasting which makes certain board facing reports more manual.

  • Easy to use and intuitive.
  • Support responded quickly to concerns or questions.
  • Dashboard had a lot of options to get the information desired.
  • For our team specifically, we had a hard time connecting with Salesforce for our renewal information.
  • Searching for particular notes from a meeting or call could be improved. Usually ended up having to just scroll back to approximate dates and select each set of notes. Often there were so many emails mixed in as well that it became difficult and timely. So they may have had it, but I didn't know how to use it properly, but the ability to filter out types of interactions when searching.

  • I like how the "Pulse" functionality guides the user to give a status of the customer happiness and key reasons for that status
  • The Success Cycle functionality is a little cumbersome and difficult to use

  • "Engagement" tool that tracks emails (easy reference to current state and history for things that may otherwise get lost in inboxes)
  • Salesforce integration: I like that data from Salesforce is fed into my CS client page & there's a quicklink to Salesforce directly if I need more info
  • "MyTeam" "My Company" , etc>>Sorting capabilities allow for easily drilling down content you want to see for clients & the ability to view status in one place
  • Reporting>>I would love for some of my metrics for clients from the SAAS product we sell to be pulled in directly to CS. Currently I have to manually go in and add certain metrics because it doesn't seem like we have a way to connect/integrate this
  • Tasks>>again this is a manual process that would be great to automate in some way or set reminders to input and track tasks (perhaps this is currently available and I have not utilized it or taken the time to go through a tutorial)
  • Tutorials/Email reminders>>perhaps when CS sends me an email that something is missing or needs an update, they could also send the tutorial/short video references for tips, tricks, best practice of how to use that tool (I've heard the tutorials and blog are good, but I don't often go back and browse them, it would be great if these resources came in a more organic way while in the working process)

  • ClientSuccess makes it easy for our customer success managers to manage their workflows and provides excellent visibility into our company's customer activity and engagement. We're able to log into CS and regularly check segments of our customers that need to be engaged with on a daily basis, log customer health, and be aware of approaching subscription renewals in order to pay appropriate attention to the right customers.
  • The user interface is easy to use, friendly in design, and quick to learn. They make it look attractive with bright color schemes without overdoing it too much.
  • As a customer success manager myself, I am appreciative of how this tool has kickstarted our fairly-new Customer Success department and made us much more organized and knowledgeable as a customer-facing entity.
  • Their customer success/support teams are excellent as well - which is to be expected. We've felt very well taken care of since we became customers of ClientSuccess.
  • ClientSuccess could improve their integration with Salesforce and other popular software for a more cohesive user experience.
  • I believe ClientSuccess could also grow in accommodating for different SaaS business models - right now the playbooks they provide are very standard and don't necessarily conform to the diversity of our organization and its various products/needs.
  • ClientSuccess could improve their integration with Salesforce and other popular software for a more cohesive user experience.
  • The performance of the tool (how quick it responds and syncs and bugs) could be improved as well - but I guess that could be said of any great software app!

  • Everything you need in one convenient Dashboard. Something I wish SalesForce would learn.
  • Being able to see upsell opportunities gives our department a clear value and goal.
  • Simple to use, easy to explain.
  • More integrations. We do a lot of copying and pasting to various task managers, CRMs, emails, and marketing platforms.
  • Reporting can feel limited at times, but we make up for it using other tools and spreadsheets in office.
  • Seems a little slow at times, but it could be our customer volume.

  • It allows us to track the "customer journey" and better understand the metrics for each segment within the journey.
  • Easy reporting...the reporting functionality has enabled us to set some baseline metrics for our team to improve upon over time.
  • I wish the contract edits were more customizable.
