Customer Success Managers are responsible for developing customer relationships that promote retention and loyalty. Their job is to work closely with customers to ensure they are satisfied with the services they receive and to improve upon areas of dissatisfaction.

Prodsight can help CSMs automate their qualitative insights from various customer feedback sources such as support tickets, surveys, reviews, and more. In this guide we discuss three approaches with practical examples you can try in Prodsight.
