SaaStr Annual kicks off today. If you work for a SaaS company or use SaaS products across your organization, then you’ve probably heard of SaaStr, or at least you know many of the companies attending and sponsoring. In fact, it’s the biggest SaaS event of the year, and today 10,000 SaaS experts from around the globe will gather in San Francisco for several days of learning and sharing, .

Those attending SaaStr as well as many other leaders across the industry have come to know and respect Jason Lemkin as one of the top SaaS leaders today. From co-founding EchoSign to serving in an executive role at Adobe to investing in SaaS companies to founding SaaStr, he’s no stranger to the world of the subscription economy. And as for the ClientSuccess team, you might just say Jason Lemkin is our homeboy.

Why Is Jason Lemkin Our Homeboy?

Jason is a true champion of customer success. In fact, he’s perhaps the most vocal advocate in the entire SaaS community about the topic. Jason believes that customer success is the secret sauce in SaaS, and as you can tell from our company name, we live and breath the success of customers—especially in the B2B space.

If you are an executive or a customer success leader in any business where recurring revenue is a major component of your business, listen to what Jason has to say. Here is a sampling of some of Jason’s one-liners on the topic of customer success:

Is Your Organization Investing in Customer Success?

Our team is exceptionally passionate about customer success, retention, and growth, and we’re building the world’s best SaaS platform that enables recurring revenue businesses to reach their customer success related goals. The ClientSuccess platform is designed to help CSMs know which customers to work with, when to work with them, and what to do to drive adoption of your SaaS products. It also helps you develop strong relationships with your team and brand.

For those who are customer success leaders and executives, we pose this question: What greater priority could you have than empowering your CSMs—the representatives that work so hard for your customers—with the right information to make them better at retaining customers?

  • Scale a customer success team

How Will Your SaaS Organization Prioritize Customer Success?

The health of a SaaS business is directly tied to its ability to retain its customers and prevent churn. That means making sure CSMs and customers alike are set up to be successful. Make sure that customer success is an integral part of your organization’s strategy.
