Amit Ronen, Senior Vice President Customer Success at Wind River
Wind River’s customer success team consists of individuals who are both highly technical and business savvy. The team not only provides best-in-class premium support but works closely with other internal resources to address customers’ needs, and ensures customer projects are completed successfully.
The customer success team spent most of their time in reactive mode. As Wind River approached a new product solution launch, they needed help to understand what building a world-class Customer Success organization might entail to meet the new product demands. This provided the team with the opportunity to rebrand their customer success charter, repackage their services and examine the manner in which they collaborate internally with various team members.
CSM Practice worked with Wind River to understand their current organization structure, processes, and systems. Our firm highlighted opportunities to align Wind River’s current Customer Success practice with industry’s best practices.
CSM Practice then provided a documented detailed framework for a new scalable Premier Success offering that included changes to the organizational structure, customer journey, pricing for premium success packages and prioritized list of recommended initiatives to mature the practice.
With the help of CSM Practice, Wind River gained a fresh perspective on Customer Success and established a roadmap for developing a scalable practice for its new cloud offering.
Wind River now has a clear direction to becoming efficient in driving product adoption and building relationships with its customers. Implementing CSM Practice’s recommendations introduced a path for a self-funded customer success program designed to accelerate their new product solution’s success, and accelerate revenues growth.
