It is officially Customer Service week and Seismic is celebrating those individuals who are committed to our customer’s success. At Seismic, providing our customers with superior service is a top priority which is why we have over 180 members on our Customer Success team dedicated to providing ongoing strategic guidance and support.

Who better to celebrate those individuals than our customers?

Throughout the week, we will be featuring a customer and Seismic Customer Success team duo. Check out Volume 3 of this blog series here.
