Digital Customer Experience (DCX) focuses on usability, speed of navigation and information

PHD believes it’s not enough to provide great products, great service and great support.  Customers demand the ability to access the data they need while working on their schedule. This is the foundation of DCX, empowering customers with digital tools while easing demands on internal customer support staff. The new myPHD user dashboard adds many features which are commonly requested by engineers and designers.

“We have volumes of information that our users not only want, but need, to make their jobs easier,” says Steve Gilliom, Vice President of Information Technology at PHD Inc.  “We continue  to improve the experience of doing business with PHD.  This includes providing a history of what the user downloaded in the past for quick reference or so they could add a feature or option and get a new CAD model from what they did last month. We’re also educating them by helping to explain the breakdown of what the Xth digit in the ordering data means. This helps them to quickly find a replacement part if needed.  Most importantly, myPHD helps to connect the user with our distributors for additional information and where they can purchase.  This saves the customer, distributor and PHD time by having the information at the user’s fingertips.”
