Jet has launched its upgraded extranet portal ’My Phillips 66’. The company says the upgrade is the result of considerable research and investment to develop an industry-leading data delivery mechanism for customers across its entire retail, wholesale, aviation, LPG and marine network.
My Phillips 66, which replaces the previous CPNet, is capable of supporting the latest software. The new, more user-friendly portal provides customers with personalised business-critical content such as invoices, daily prices and lifting allocation details. It also contains up-to-date industry news, HSE-related content and information on supply locations.
Work is currently under way on developing a complementary My Phillips 66 app for use on Android and Apple devices. Initially, the app will give users instant access to pricing information with a timeline in place for future add-ons and enhancements.
As well as the updated content, the aim of the fully refreshed portal is to deliver a number of additional benefits including much simpler navigation, quicker performance when moving between pages, cross-browser compliance, a reduced number of clicks to get to key features, and a search function for some sections of the site. A ’quick picks’ section enables customers to find shortcuts to their most used tools.
The online portal is personalised to each Jet customer, with different access levels depending on the user’s business use.
Pete George, managing director of Phillips 66 UK & Ireland marketing, commented: "We recognise that the shifting landscape of the web over the past five years has changed the way our customers access data, with many now looking for more mobile-friendly or app experiences.
"With My Phillips 66, users will be able to choose from both a desktop website and a mobile app experience for pricing.
"We’re confident that we’ve developed a solid foundation on which to upgrade and add on extra features in the future as needs change."
Training on My Phillips 66 is already under way. Customers will, as normal, have access to a dedicated 9-5 weekday helpdesk team to manage any queries.
