The growth of Customer Success software has been driven by the accelerating adoption of Customer Success teams, the prevalence of subscription-based revenue models, and the increased focus on retention and upsell as key business metrics. As the system of record for Customer Success, ChurnZero integrates customer account data from multiple sources and enables Customer Success teams to be proactive in managing customer relationships and identifying renewal issues or upsell opportunities.

“At Mailchimp, we pride ourselves on making innovative products that empower businesses to gain and retain customers,” said Erica Swint-Williams, Senior Manager, Customer Success at Mailchimp. “When looking for a provider to partner with us on our Customer Success efforts, we expected the same level of dedication in both product and service – we have found that in ChurnZero.
