iQuote Best Practice: System Unit Product Descriptions

June 16, 2010

The iQuote Team has just improved all System Unit descriptions on iQuote to deliver clear and consistent product information. The best way to sell is to be informed and confident in your knowledge of the product. This will help as when you are browsing products your success rate of picking the most appropriate system will be higher.

Example description of the DL360 G7 range:
