Staffbase is a leading global platform for mobile-first employee communications, intranets and employee apps. During the acquisition of a company with over 100 employees, the focus was on migrating processes and standardizing the customer experience. The aim was to achieve a consistently high quality of customer service worldwide without negative consequences for customers and employees during project implementation. Together, we succeeded in creating an efficient process that can be used as a best practice for future acquisitions.


Initial Situation

Acquisition of a company with 150 employees (Staffbase: 400 employees)

  • Remote only
  • Relevant KPIs of the acquired company differed from Staffbase (CSAT 85% and thus lower; response time faster due to end user support)
  • Limited use of Zendesk at acquired company
  • Potential of Zendesk was not utilized: No Zendesk admin, etc.


  • Customer impact should be kept as low as possible
  • All tools/teams/processes should be united
  • Timeline-oriented execution of the process
  • Project as blueprint for future acquisitions
  • Helpcenter integration with Staffbase Helpcenter
  • Conversion of end-user support from B2C/B2B mixed business to B2B-only.

  • Single Brand
  • Users didn’t notice anything about the migration, agents only very little, since the working environment has hardly changed through the project steps
  • Customer Experience is unified with high quality: CSAT; First Reply Time; quality of customer interactions greatly increased
  • Central tracking across all customer interactions
  • All organizational processes are integrated with the tools (e.g. processes in North America are the same as in Europe)
  • Best practice for future acquisitions has been created

Customer Feedback

With the help of Leafworks, we managed to complete a mammoth project without a negative impact on users and customers. Quite the opposite – we were able to standardize customer satisfaction across the entire Staffbase group at a high level and can now offer efficient multi-product support. Especially the fast and unbureaucratic ways to Leafworks were helpful here to execute decisions quickly in our agile working world.
