How to use this template

In relay races, defining moments don't occur at the finish line; they happen when the baton gets passed from one runner to the next. This is no different in business. The Sales to CS handoff defines the experience your customer will have with the product.

This customer transition can be tricky because it requires seamless alignment between your Sales & CS teams. By giving your team a clear understanding of the client, this meeting note template doesn't just let you set expectations; it lets you set a new standard for customer experience. It's a win-win situation for everybody involved.
