Customer Success is not the same as Customer Experience

CS=CX+CO

As a former math teacher, when I first saw this equation, it spoke to me. I ran across it as I was doing research for the book Literally: The Book on Customer Success for MSPs. Gainsight, an industry leader in customer success tracking for SaaS companies, had used this to demonstrate why Customer Success is way more than Customer Experience. In a world of increasingly commoditized technology offerings, this is even truer for MSPs.
