Hey Partners,

I’m excited to announce the launch of our freshly baked newsletter, “In the Loop” built especially for our esteemed partners. 2019 proved to be a terrific year for Freshworks and we would like to thank you for all the glorious wins and consistent pursuance of our shared goals. We heard you when you said you didn’t admire our frequent one-off conversations and wanted to change that with something that is exceptionally personal.

In the Loop is one of the efforts headed in the right direction to make sure you always stay informed.

So without any further ado let’s dive in. 

Freshsuccess Launch

We’re excited to announce the launch of Freshsuccess, a Customer Success Platform that helps prevent churn, increase account expansion, and strengthen customer relationships. 🎉

 

What is it?

Freshsuccess is part of the Freshworks Customer-for-Life Cloud, which includes Marketing, Sales, Support, and now Customer Success.

 

With Freshsuccess, businesses can:

 

    • Automatically monitor customer health

    • Alert Customer Success Managers about customer risks or opportunities

    • See a unified view of account activity across marketing, sales, support and customer success data stacks

 

Who is it for?

Freshsuccess is aimed at B2B subscription services. Personas include VP/Directors of Customer Success who own customer retention and expansion along with Support leaders who want to become more proactive.

Built upon Natero’s powerful data-layer, Freshsuccess ushers in a delightful new user experience that you’ve come to expect from Freshworks. 

 

 

Key features include:

 

    • Account 360 - See product usage activity, support tickets, communications, billing information, and more — all in one place.

    • Health Scoring - Know when customers are thriving or struggling.

    • Proactive Alerts - Automatically identify potential churn, new advocates, and accounts that are ready to expand.

    • Success Workflows - Proactively manage customers through onboarding, product adoption, account expansion, and ultimately renewal.

    • Reporting & Analytics - Get visibility into product adoption, customer engagement, and Customer Success processes.

 

This launch is just the first step in an exciting product roadmap for 2020, so stay tuned!

What’s fresh?

 

  • Chat support

 

    • Our much loved 24x5 chat support on Freshdesk will now only be available on Estate and Garden plans. This tough decision will help us accommodate more requests from high-value customers as we bank on our Customer for Life motto. 

 

  • Downgrade policy change

 

    • Our policy around product subscriptions has been updated. The key change to the policy indicates that new customers will no longer be allowed to downgrade their subscription during the middle of the term. The policy is in effect from 25th November 2019. 

    • Existing Customers can still enjoy the benefits of downgrading/canceling their plan mid-term even after the policy change. 

    • Should any customer have any doubts regarding this policy change and billing queries can reach out to us at billings@freshworks.com for clarification.

 

  • Omnichannel Customer Timeline

 

    • Struggling with context? Worry no more as ‘Omnichannel Customer Timeline’ will help your customers have just the right amount of context everytime they view a contact. The contacts page will now feature in-detail events of every interaction the customer has with a business. This quick glance feature will allow agents to understand everything about a ticket as soon as it enters the helpdesk. 

 

Eureka! Right? 

Go on, boast about it to your customers and friends. We’re quite proud of it too :)

Wisdom Talk

In this global community, it’s important to develop resilience by giving ourselves games that we can win. Sign up for the marathon in the slowest category, tee off from the tees closest to the pin, rig the game so you can finally win something. Then you’ll feel better about yourself and you’ll use that confidence, that energy, to keep going. - Neil Pasricha (@NeilPasricha)
