Customer success for global content requires a multi-faceted and phased approach because it is a moving target. Users shift to newer content platforms and discard the old, they expect content now, requiring a “continuous delivery” content workflow, and content must resonate with the audience to build a brand following. Global Customer Success is no longer measured by a linguistic quality score. Rather, it is dependent upon User Experience in different stages of the overall customer experience.
This panel of global content and user experience experts discusses the ways customer success is driven and measured and how to evolve and adapt models ahead of the changing customer and competitive landscape. Topics addressed include mapping the customer journey, cultural aspects of success, loyalty, and engagement.

After finishing her undergraduate degree in Philosophy and her master's degree in Spanish linguistics, Adrienne moved to Boston in 2013 where she began her career at a media planning agency. Motivated by her interest in philosophy and language, Adrienne transitioned to a role as a bilingual content strategist. There, her work shifted from the product-focused realm of traditional advertising to user-focused content, as she developed content strategies for both English and Spanish-speaking audiences. Adrienne became passionate about providing valuable experiences to customers through an understanding of their needs. Now, Adrienne works on Rapid7's User Experience team building processes and research plans to understand how customers experience various forms of help documentation. Adrienne also focuses on internal processes across the organization, designing experiences based on the challenges, priorities, and goals of their users.
