Own Customer Renewal, Retention, and Expansion
Customer Success Managers will be accountable for the commercial welfare of their portfolio. CSMs will drive the renewal and maintenance sales cycles with our cloud and on-prem customers. You’ll be responsible for developing and managing a 120-day forecast of your renewal opportunities. It will need to accurately reflect the probability to renew and the contributing factors driving the renewal decision. CSMs will also partner with the Account Executive in their assigned territories to refer qualified expansion opportunities. 
 
Relationship Building
As a CSM, you’ll work with your key contacts to gain a better an understanding of their business and how decisions are made (both strategic and commercial). You’ll execute a communication strategy within your accounts that presents the right information to the right stakeholders. You’ll deliver value to all stakeholders in your portfolio through training, best practice consulting, and KPI reporting. Most of all you’ll do everything in your power to make your stakeholders successful in their own organization. Know what is important to them and help them deliver results using our solution and services. 
 
Value Identification
CSMs work closely with our customers throughout their lifecycle stages beyond onboarding to facilitate organizational-wide adoption and expanded value from our solution and services. You’ll assist customers in reporting out key metrics from our solution including: user activity, adoption rate, words under management, Acrolinx Score, and overall content improvement. The very best CSMs will work with our customers to translate these product-based value drivers to business outcomes. These may include lead conversion, ticket deflection, increased customer satisfaction, and decreased abandonment rate. Metrics such as these will be reported out via a prescribed EBR and QBR program for our customers.
 
Outcome Management
As a CSM you’ll work with your portfolio of customers to define the KPIs associated with their use of Acrolinx. Beyond KPIs related to product usage and adoption metrics, we task our CSMs to take the next step with our customers and ask “why are you doing this?”. Once the proper business outcomes are associated with our solution, CSMs can partner with customers on the metrics associated with success.
 
Onboarding
CSMs assist the Project Manager, when needed, to coordinate product delivery, entitlements, professional services, and training. You’ll work with your primary customer contacts to define the success criteria and first-value delivery. You’ll act as the primary contact for any escalations during the project and work with our customers to get problems resolved.
 
Skills & Attributes: 
  • Emotional Intelligence - Above all else our customers are people and want to partner with people who understand them and their needs. You should be calm under pressure, have a keen ability to read verbal and nonverbal cues and be patient and understanding with your customers.
  • Outcomes First - Relationships are important but outcomes are imperative. Your ability to activate resources and lead a team towards a goal will be important to success in this role. You must be able to set proper expectations with customers and internal stakeholders to deliver on your customers’ needs.
  • Business Savvy - CSMs need to act as consultants and to do so effectively you must understand the customer’s business. Understand what drives their success and have the ability to learn by listening to your customers. It isn’t necessary to come from the industry of the customer you’re working with, but it’s important that you show the ability to understand the basics of industry.
  • Sales and Forecasting - Understand how to drive a sales cycle and the dependencies to get an opportunity closed. Properly forecast: probability, expected close date, and final amount.
  • Analytical - Everybody brings data! Whether you’re working with a customer or working on a project internally, data drives our conversations. You should be comfortable creating data driven business cases and extracting data from CRMs and application databases (front end).
  • Tech Savvy - If it was easy everyone would do it. Acrolinx is a market leading technology. As such our solutions lean towards technical expertise. You should have a working understanding of how cloud and on-premise solutions work and be comfortable working within both environments.

  • Global responsibilities with a high degree of autonomy and many opportunities to make an impact
  • Continuous opportunities for training as well as expanding your skills and experiences alongside the global growth of the company
  • Being part of a truly diverse and international team
