    have tactics for identifying and rescuing at-risk customers? • Can you leverage the relationships your customers have for cross-selling? • Are account managers notified when a customer submits a high priority issue or has a past due bill? • What happens after a prospect becomes a customer? What happens when a prospect has a support issue? • Is the support team able to pass leads to sales? Can support cases be routed differently based on active opportunities or account status? • How can sales and service work together to minimize churn / unhappy customers? • Are there administrative tasks for sales that can be automated or streamlined with self-service?
