Supercharging Your Tech Stack: The Relationship Between Your Customer Success Platform and CRM

This is the first in the blog series “Supercharging your Tech Stack with Totango”. In this series, we will discuss a different integration that Totango offers to help harness the powers of all of your technology platforms into one dynamic customer success platform to improve your team’s efficiency and take your customer success to the next level.

There’s no denying the power of good customer relationship management (CRM) software. From storing contacts and opportunities to managing relationships and interactions, your CRM is a critical component of your business operations. But are you utilizing your CRM to its fullest potential? 

While a CRM provides a great view of your sales cycle, it doesn’t provide a holistic view of the entire customer relationship. With a CRM, you can’t see the full picture of a customer’s health including important signals like the customer’s usage or sentiment of the product. You also aren’t able to orchestrate activity and engagement workflows across teams within a CRM system.

A customer success platform, however, is able to give you a more complete view of your customer by collecting information from multiple data points across your organization and storing them all in one central location. It allows you to combine the information from several disparate systems in order to see a clear visual of your data, understand what your customers are facing and how they are using your product in response, and then take action on that information immediately.

When you combine your CRM with a Customer Success platform, you are able to dynamically track all of your customer interactions and touchpoints over time to create a living, breathing tool that updates continuously as new information is collected and fed into it from other systems across your company. Having all of this data in one place allows you to easily access and share that crucial information with others within the organization to create a consistent journey for your customers.


The insights your team can learn from the combination of these tools allow them to be more proactive and less reactive when it comes to customer success. Your team will gain an improved understanding of crucial components of customer health, such as satisfaction levels, product usage, and engagement. By analyzing this information, they will be able to better predict factors that may cause a customer to cancel, so they can get ahead of any issues, help minimize churn and increase retention rates.
