Customer Success Team Challenge
As with every fast-growing company, Outfit7 needs to adapt quickly to changes in the market to keep its competitiveness. Meaning frequent changes in the requirements are not unheard, but this is business-as-usual for us with fast-moving customers, points out Tuukka Tuomaala, Bitbar Customer Success Manager in charge of onboarding Outfit7 into Bitbar platform.
The single most challenging thing to solve during the implementation was getting the manual testing to work in OSX Mojave in the way Outfit7 needed, this was a novelty for us, but we got it done without any delay.
Customer success is the ultimate goal for Bitbar. We’re successful only if our clients are. The main business benefit Outfit7 is getting right away is a significant increase in the team’s productivity. Automating many steps of their QA process will lead to substantial time and resource savings, concludes Tuukka.
