My team and I use Gong in a variety of ways…

  1. I personally treat Gong like a podcast of my customers. I have filters so I am listening to the customers most relevant to my role. Gong is on the home screen of my phone.
  2. We use Gong to give structured peer feedback using a scorecard.
  3. We’re rolling out the use of Gong to self-coach in a structured way using a scorecard.

@Jeff Smith this is incredible - thanks for sharing! Would love to see what your scorecard looks like!

Love the podcast of customers quote! Would also love to see your scorecard 🙂 

Gong swag coming your way!

I have grown and lead our CSM team and we all use Gong! Personally I love the following three features:

  1. Deals - warns me way better than our CRM if a renewal deal in-quarter is stale or not getting replies/touchpoints
  2. Scoring of recorded calls - We rolled out a formal EBR process which we have to report on to our CEO and the board. The rubrics and scoring live in Gong and 80%+ is a “success” in our reports. Gives us a common understanding of what a winning EBR looks like
  3. Churn language and other specific language alerts - I get an email when customers mention to ANYONE on my team something that may indicate a risk so I can choose to investigate further

Gong has quickly turned into a killer CS tool and I’m here for it!
