At TSIA, we are dedicated to helping technology services organizations of all sizes stay on top of the latest best practices for growing and advancing their business. Our 30-minute TSIA Pulse webinars are a great way to hear directly from our research team about how emerging industry trends are affecting their respective service discipline, and what you can do to stay current. The majority of this quarter’s Pulse sessions touch on the topic of customer adoption and what you can do to make sure your customers are not only purchasing your solutions, but are using them effectively to achieve their desired outcomes. Here’s a list of this quarter’s TSIA Pulse webinars, in case you missed it!
Customer Success and Support
“The Customer Success Journey: On-boarding and Adoption”
Presented by Judith Platz, Vice President of Research, and Thomas Lah, Executive Director, TSIA
Establishing and leveraging your customer success organization is not as simple as 1-2-3, but it can be made easier with the help of data-backed research and insights. In part one of this two-part webinar series on starting the journey of success with customers, you’ll be able to evaluate your current customer on-boarding process to see how your customer success organization matches up to industry best practices.
“The ES Organization of the Future: Are You Prepared?”
Presented by Maria Manning-Chapman, Vice President of Research, TSIA
Based on the results of TSIA’s recent Education Services (ES) compensation study, it’s clear that current staffing practices maintain the status quo at a time when ES organizations should be reinventing themselves. For years, a delivery intensive staffing model has been the standard, but for numerous reasons, this model will not support the ES organization of the future. A fundamental shift in the capabilities required for education organizations to be successful means the introduction of new roles and positions, and increasing investment in others. Are you prepared to make the change?
