New Holland Agriculture has launched an extensive PLM™ End User Support service together with the PLM™ Academy, which has a wide PLM™ training offering. This enables users to exploit the full productivity enhancing potential of New Holland’s state of the art PLM™ range.PLM™ Customer Support Centre
The new PLM™ Customer Support Centre has been created to offer a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all PLM™ queries to customers while they are out in the field. More than a traditional call centre, the lines are manned by highly trained support personnel, and with immediate access to highly skilled engineers to ensure the most efficient resolution of all questions. Direct assistance will be provided for routine ‘how - to questions’ to reduce costly downtime. More complex requests are ‘owned’ by the PLM™ Support Centre to offer a single point of reference for customers, streamlining the process and simplifying customer interaction. Furthermore, the customer’s local dealer receives regular status updates to ensure that they are fully aware of the issue until final resolution.
The PLM™ Customer Support service is available from 7am to 7pm - Monday to Friday and customers will simply call the free-phone New Holland Top Service line 00800 64 111111 (or 01 242 1881 from a mobile in Ireland). Customers can also email the PLM™ Support Centre on firstname.lastname@example.org
