Organizational Background and Customer Satisfaction Goals
USAA provides a full range of financial products and services to the military community and their families. Our world-class employees are committed to delivering superior products, appropriate guidance and exceptional customer service. We started as a word of mouth company, in 1922 when 25 Army officers met in San Antonio, Texas and decided to insure each other's vehicles they laid the foundation for an organization that would one day serve millions of members. USAA has earned its member’s trust by providing years of award-winning service through a comprehensive suite of financial products and advice. Our members expect excellence in customer service from a financial services organization that’s served generations of military families. Service, Loyalty, Honesty and Integrity, USAA stands ready to serve.
Our members were asking for support through their channel of choice and USAA was committed to extending customer care in social networks. Meeting our member’s needs with the immediacy of social customer care is an extension of our commitment to service. USAA recognizes that member care is a mission critical deliverable. “We know what it means to serve” is at the root of everything we do. In 4 months we moved at the speed of social to implement an enterprise platform that would enable the gold standard for member social care.
USAA’s 2015 customer care satisfaction goals were to enable an enterprise platform which meets the needs of individual business units in the financial services and insurance industries, address social customer care, member complaint and communications needs, achieve an enterprise SLA of 30 minutes or less, reduce social acknowledgement time by a minimum of 15%, expand social customer care coverage addressing the immediate needs of our membership, reduce enterprise social customer care internal documentation by 25%, enable seamless customer care from social channels to internal CRM processes.
Customer Satisfaction and Business Accomplishments with Lithium Implementation
USAA has been recognized year over year for our service and commitment to members on traditional communication channels.

The net result is a reduction in time on task for business processes and FTE savings. With LSW USAA has an enterprise solution integrating managed properties like Facebook and Twitter with our Member Community, powered by the Lithium Community Platform. Our Member Community has over 300K members; this owned social property was an integral part of our strategy to maintain superior customer care where members demand our presence. The USAA Member Community has hosted over 8M unique visits with over 35K same session product application completions. 11 major business units at USAA utilize LSW with 6 key financial service business teams interacting with members in social channels on a daily basis.
