Here at Nasuni, we believe that the customer experience from the sales process to production launch should be a seamless one. Our Nasuni Customer Lifecycle Process provides just that. New customers are immediately assigned a Customer Success Manager and Senior Professional Services Consultant to begin the implementation process. Our Professional Services Team follows a structured approached of understanding the customer’s environment and maximizing their return on using the Nasuni Service. Once in production, our Customer Support Team and assigned Customer Success Manager will provide a proactive, close relationship.
The Nasuni Customer Support Team consistently delivers over 95% customer satisfaction ratings to our customer base. We accomplish this by building a team of highly technical engineers that truly enjoy providing exceptional customer service. Combine this with our proactive monitoring built into the service and you can see why our customers rave about our support.
Our dedicated Support Engineers provide professional technical support from our Company Headquarters. The team provides 24/7 on call coverage for after normal business hours, and on weekends and holidays. Please review the Support Data Sheet for severity definitions and associated response times.
The Nasuni Professional Services Team is comprised of Senior Technologists that have expertise in various technologies and protocol that will interoperate with the Nasuni Service during implementation and into production. The PS Consultants work with customers on a formalized implementation plan that includes: site readiness checklist, detailed rollout plan, data migration, pre-production testing and production rollout.
The Customer Success Manager (CSM) is assigned to all customers to provide continuity throughout implementation and into production launch. The CSM is the voice of the customer within Nasuni. This is accomplished by establishing regular customer calls based on the customer’s preference to: review product roadmaps, solicit product feedback, feature requests and provide technical training on new features and functionality. Please review the Customer Success Manager Data Sheet for more details.
