What’s the Difference Between Customer Service and Customer Success?

Most people are familiar with Customer Service roles that exist across most industries; where individual responsibilities include serving the needs of the customer, responding to requests or complaints, for example.

Customer Success takes that one step beyond by being proactive with customers (businesses / organisations / individuals) and helping them create strategies to see them succeed while using your company’s product or services.

Customer Success roles involve proactive solutions for customers – not just reactive.

What is the role of a Customer Success Manager?

The role of a Customer Success Manager is to ensure business clients achieve maximum return on investment (ROI) when using your company’s services or products.

They manage relationships with key stakeholders from the customer’s organisation and work with them to deliver mutually beneficial solutions.

Working with customers to optimise results against their business goals is not just the ethical thing to do as a business, but it also benefits your own organisation and brand reputation in the long run as great service, in turn, develops customer loyalty and leads to further client referrals / business.
