Gainsight Inc., formerly known as JBara Software, is a sobig data company which mainly focuses on customer retention and reducing churn instead of customer acquisition. Gainsight, The Customer Success Company integrates with Salesforce and it uses sales data, surveys, support tickets, usage logs and other sources of customer intelligence to turn customer retention into an automated, data-driven process.

Gainsight develops products to measure how their products are used or adopted in order to improve customer services by identifying the up-sell opportunities and assess the impact of churn on the revenue and customer lifetime value. For example, The Software-as-a-Service uses metrics like when a customer suddenly pays late and/or leaves a lot of negative comments to identify customers and warn managers through an alert about what is happening. On the other hand, customers that increase their usage or always pay on time can be identified as possible up-selling opportunities.
