In addition to his deep industry knowledge, Nathan also provides Churnkey with a valuable network and connections that will help Churnkey cultivate more enterprise clients from around the world.
“There are three rules when deciding to get involved with a company: are you in a good market? Is the product good? Is the team good? Churnkey checks all these boxes easily,” said Nathan. “I admire what the small-and-mighty team has built and believe deeply in their mission. Subscriptions are taking over the world and Churnkey is well-positioned to help businesses grow more efficiently. I’m thrilled to help them accelerate their dominance of the space.”
The popular SaaS-focused podcast Subscription Heroes recently interviewed Nathan to share insights on the software industry, discuss his new role with Churnkey, and more. Listen to the interview here.
Churnkey believes that every subscription cancellation and billing touchpoint is an opportunity to build better customer relationships.
For example, instead of making it more difficult to cancel subscriptions, Churnkey makes the cancellation process a positive experience for the departing customer as well as the business that wants to learn from their departure. Churnkey does this by offering a customer-centric cancellation experience that dynamically changes based on a customer’s history and other variables. The Churnkey platform empowers its customers to present a variety of offers such as discounted rates for their own departing high-value customers, or free trial extensions for their own new customers.
Churnkey customers can recover failed payments, analyze qualitative feedback automatically with AI, and track boosted revenue progress. The platform supercharges all aspects of customer retention — optimizing growth and informing customer-driven product development via machine learning. The platform is user-friendly, easily installed, and effortlessly connects with teams’ everyday workflows via integrations with Stripe, Slack, Paddle, and more. It’s used by customer-obsessed teams at Jasper.ai, VEED, Delta Sonic Car Wash Systems, and subscription businesses throughout the world.
Key metrics for Churnkey include:
– $1 billion in protected subscription revenue
– 42 million protected subscriptions
– $34 million recovered revenue in the past eight months
– 10+ million cancel sessions served to date
– 1 million cancel sessions served per month
