The Arlington, Va.-based startup founded in 2015 is a customer success software company that helps SaaS companies retain subscribers by optimizing their customer experiences. With the funding, the company will invest in growing its portfolio of clients, and product development for its platform to support customer-facing teams, a news release states.
“Building a customer success platform that integrates data and customer touchpoints from a myriad of sources, generates insights and analytics, and kicks off workflows and communications is a tough technical project and is a proud achievement for our team,” You Mon Tsang, cofounder and CEO of ChurnZero, said in a statement. “But our real achievement is creating a happy and successful customer base. Our growth has been testament to our efforts so far and I am thrilled to have Baird Capital as partners to invest further in the company and in the ecosystem.”
