Planhat Experts: The State of Customer Success

The challenges and opportunities facing customer success in 2022 have been exciting and immense. Yet, with pressure being exerted on CS teams – from many different angles – the state of customer success and how to navigate short term obstacles is high on the agenda.

Yet, as our panel of experts will explore, the long-term outlook for customer success is buoyant. Indeed, now is the time to restart and rebuild teams that will be successful, not only in 2023, and not just in 2024 but five years from now.

  • building the optimal customer success structure
