The submission and voting window is now closed. Winners will be announced on June 2, 2015 at LiNC '15! 


We’re thrilled to be in our fifth year of celebrating our customers’ success with the annual Lithium Digital Customer Excellence Awards, otherwise known as the “Lithys.” This award program is a much-anticipated highlight at LiNC and also a remarkable look at how companies are transforming the way they connect with customers in this age of extreme expectations.


You can see the Lithys entries from the past few years right here on the Lithium Community. The stories are impressive and will inspire you. For the most recent inspiration, check out the 2014 winners and photos from the award ceremony. 


This year we have some familiar categories, and a few new ones.



Total Community All Star: Recognizes the company that has leveraged both Community and Lithium Social Web (LSW) to implement a stellar digital strategy. 


Marketing Champion: Recognizes the company that is using marketing strategies to activate their Community, influencers, and Super Fans to drive real business objectives around brand awareness, loyalty and revenue.


Social ROI Titan: Recognizes the company with the most impactful business metrics across Community and other social platforms. (e.g. customer satisfaction, response time, sales leads).


Excellence in Customer Satisfaction: Recognizes the company that has showcased a significant increase in customer engagement, loyalty and lifetime value among customers.


Support Savings MVP: Recognizes the company that has best demonstrated significant cost efficiencies and support savings for their business.


Most Creative Community Promotion or Launch (video submission): Recognizes the company that has rolled out unique and creative approaches to promote a Community launch or other Community milestones.
