1. Describe the organization's objectives in launching a Khoros community. What is the use-case and purpose of your community (support, enablement and learning, marketing awareness, customer success, driving sales, product innovation, etc.)? Has the community charter evolved since its launch, and if so, how?
PowerSchool offers a variety of products to support the needs of school administrators, office staff, educators, families, and applicants. The goal of the community is to provide a unified support portal for all our products, offering opportunities for both self-help and direct support features.
2. How did the community get brought to life? Was there executive/business/stakeholder buy-in? What was the process to gain this buy-in? How was cross-functional support and organizational adoption achieved?
Our PowerSchool Community was built as a unified site to support all of our products. Since the start of our community, we have collaborated with leaders and teams across PowerSchool. We worked together on various initiatives, communications, training, and office hours to ensure we had awareness.
3. What were the results? More revenue generated, a reduction of costs, improved customer experience, more innovation, etc.? Tell us how Khoros helped you achieve those results. Please include quantifiable metrics if possible.
As a direct result of our focus on enhancing the customer experience, we experienced an increase in community engagement and self-help resources. Our search success rate has increased to 93%. We have maintained a 96% CSAT and grown our super user program, PowerSchool Mentors.
