[I like that Clozd has] reports, filtering possibilities to get not only 'pure insights but also already done analysis.

Our Clozd rep's dedication to our account has been the best part of my experience. She takes the time to understand my goals before conducting each quarter's interviews. Additionally, she is willing to jump on calls with our Product Team to dive into the insights reports she creates.”

[The Clozd] Platform is really easy to understand and the call out of decision drivers makes it simple to digest what factors influenced their decision. The ability to share makes it easy to spread this across our organization as well.”

We engaged CLOZD to help us understand at a deep level why or why not we were winning deals. They are performing regular Win/Loss interviews and analysis for complex professional software products and services to inform our Go-To-Market and In-market strategies… We were pleased to find hidden gems in the content of the interview transcripts that enabled us to source testimonials, social proof, and deeper case studies for our Advocacy program. The team is also WONDERFUL to work with!”

60% of sales reps don't understand how they won or lost a deal. Clozd provides a platform to dig deeper into your products and services by creating a safe space between seller and buyer… 3rd party interviews are crucial for me to form a competitive intelligence program. Clozd allows me to view insights clients typically don't share with sales reps.”

Clozd has been very valuable for our organization as we enter new markets and industries. Knowing how we performed against competitors, what the client was expecting, what we delivered on, or where we fell short makes prioritizing much easier… Clozd as a platform is getting better all the time. The analysis is somewhat limited but has given us insight that we've never had before.”

Clozd helps us solve the pain point of collecting anecdotal win/loss information so that we can be more productive with these insights despite limited employee bandwidth.”
Verified User

I like the summary of key features/benefits that helped us to win/lose a deal. The way [Clozd] categorizes information and pays attention to normalizing the experience has been good as a way to filter responses. Additionally, the interviewers are adept at 'following the clues' during a conversation -- this is not always a strong competency of 'in-house' interviewers. Clozd has hired and trained their staff really well on this dimension.”

[I like] the categorization that Clozd helps to employ - it allows us to group a ton of deal feedback into actionable areas for prioritization. These are not blanket "costs are too high" categories, either - they are more specific than that.”

If you are trying to do win-loss analysis 'in-house', consider getting a 3rd party like Clozd to achieve an objective set of results. We have often found this to be true because when you take out the feelings/emotions that an 'in-house' analysis will undoubtedly surface (from product, marketing, sales, etc.), you will get actionable feedback from prospects and customers alike. This result is harder to come by doing this 'in-house' when you are potentially 'leading the reviewer' in a particular way to make things look/feel better.”

Clozd is a great analysis tool focused on a specific type of feedback - deals won/lost and associated customer feedback. I love that focus, and it allows the tool to be way more useful (vs. bundling too many things into one platform and diluting the true value/use case).”

Win-loss analysis should be a key source of insights into how potential customers see your product on its own and vs key competitors. In practice, this knowledge is elusive, hard to access, analyze and draw conclusions - often due to its qualitative nature. Clozd turns this into a process that makes capturing and analyzing insights a structured practice, making it easy to draw conclusions.”

Clozd has been quite transformational. I think it is a true statement that we had many assumptions about why we win and why we lose, and that a good many of those assumptions have been definitively proven to be false. We have made product packaging changes, pricing changes, GTM messaging changes, positioning changes, and churn reduction changes. Anecdotally, we are sporting a 50%+ win rate, up from the 30% range in the pre-Clozd era."

We needed insights into what works and what doesn't for pipeline opportunities. It seems easier for prospects to give feedback to someone uninvolved in the process than to an internal representative. We are now able to see honest feedback, reasons for wins and losses, and these insights inform improvements.”

[Clozd helps us with] understanding the difference between what we think buyers see from our sales efforts and product and what buyers (and those who don't choose you) actually think is critical. Clozd provides this by giving us two things: 1. an impartial 3rd party to talk to the client and get honest feedback 2. a portal to see how all the insights from these customer conversations tell a story about what we offer in the market. We make critical business decisions based on this feedback.”
