AFS and Ignition Launch Global Customer Success Program

AFS Technologies and Ignition have embarked on an exciting journey with the creation of a new team – Global Customer Success (GCS). The GCS team will ensure our customers are the central focus to all areas of Ignition, from Product Development through to Services and Support. The GCS team has a mission to increase sustainable, proven value to our customers, reflecting Customer Success industry best practices demonstrated by tech giants such as Google and Microsoft.

This extension of the Global Services team is our opportunity to ensure the entire AFS organization is aligned around our customers’ needs, forming a strong line of communication to help improve the quality of our products and ensure full utilization and best practices are maintained. Global Customer Success spans across our key business units in all major regions. Our team comes with a broad range of experience and backgrounds, covering different industry verticals, solution footprints, delivery, sales and support, which we believe will help customers along every step of their journey with Ignition.

We understand and believe that however we engage with our customers, the intent is to ensure each touch point delivers something back for the time invested.  To coin a phrase, as a customer with AFS and Ignition – your success will be our success. GCS aims to be Trusted Advisors to our customer base, facilitating action and initiatives that will deliver value to our partnership and encourage collaboration across all stakeholders.
