Job Description:

We have an exciting role within our growing Customer Success Team.
Working with our existing clients, you will play a pivotal role in ensuring that users are engaged and getting full value from the WPM Payment Platform, whilst continuing to develop our position as a valued and trusted advisor in relation to payment acceptance processes.

The role works closely with our strategic Account Managers, and as part of our support framework, would involve pre-planned onsite meetings (across the UK) to actively review current use and to identify and act on opportunities to improve usage and value.

Key Responsibilities

  • Develop a clear understanding of client operational goals related to current system use (including a review against best practices)
  • Build client plans with needs, requirements and measures to enable focused Customer Success support that is aligned and provides clear return on investment for the client
  • Own the operational success of the client as a central conduit to provide resource and services at the right level, at the right time, to the right people
  • Work with the client “system end users” to ensure that they have the correct knowledge and are confident using the Payment Platform
  • Either provide interactive webinar sessions or co-ordinate other resources where a training requirement has been identified
  • Deliver onsite product training
  • Understand client obstacles and work with them to overcome through advice, support, training and additional WPM resource where required
  • Actively participate in regular internal meetings to share own obstacles and work towards a deliverable solution which fits with both WPM and the client
  • Measure success and provide analytics to evidence the value the Customer Success Team brings to the client
  • Amend and update long term plans in line with changing circumstances and client requirements
  • Work closely in particular with the WPM Account Management team to ensure that clients receive joined up support from an operational perspective (which is the focus of this role) to a strategic level (which is the focus for Account Management).

What are we looking for?

  • A real enthusiasm for the concept of Customer Success and how it can help our clients to achieve more
  • Self-motivation, with innovative ideas to engage with clients and inspire success
  • Experience building strong internal and external relationships
  • The ability to communicate technical information in a jargon-free/plain English manner
  • Forward thinking with a proactive approach
  • SaaS experience
  • Ability to visit clients on-site, which may involve an overnight stay.
