Who are Customer Success Managers and How to Become One?

When a business makes its first purchase transaction with another business, it’s only the beginning of what can be a very long and fruitful relationship for the two. The value of the businesses and their relationship accrues over time as purchasing expands. As a result, more companies are transforming the responsibilities for ongoing customer care and evolving from account managers to customer success manager (CSM).

To make sure that customers of the service are satisfied, companies appoint a CSM to look into the needs and problems faced by the customers. A CSM bridges the gap between sales and support.
