Olono Extends Sales Activity Automation Platform to Customer Success Teams
With an Enterprise-Wide, Real-Time View of All Activity, B2B Organizations Can Now Reduce Churn, Increase Upsell and Maximize Customer Lifetime Value
AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 19, 2018—Olono, the leader in sales activity automation, today announced expansion into Customer Success Management (CSM), making it easier than ever for customer success organizations to track all account activity in real time—including activities occurring outside a company’s CRM system—to improve expansion, renewal and retention rates.
Today, only 29 percent of B2B customers are actively engaged with their vendors. Low engagement limits renewal and upsell opportunities and, worse, can often lead to increased customer churn.
Acting as a customer success rep’s perfect memory, Olono Account Activity Management understands all activities that have already occurred, then prompts reps to take the Next Best Action for each customer’s journey—often automating the Action. At the same time, Olono showcases activity cadence by account and rep, providing managers real-time visibility into which accounts are progressing as well as those that are stalled—so they can improve customer satisfaction and take action in time to save.
“Activity is the number one indicator of successful customer relationships, however despite weeks of training and binders full of best practices, most B2B customer success reps don’t know the right activity to take at the right time for each deal. The result is too much time passes between engagements and suddenly an account is at risk,” said Larry Warnock, CEO of Olono. “By automating data entry and delivering customized Actions, Olono Account Activity Management makes it easy to ensure high touch, customer engagement for every rep, every account. No more dropped balls or surprises, instead CSM teams can nurture more customers more effectively to drive consistent, predictable execution.”
