Options Search Tool Now Live on iQuote!

June 22, 2010

Today iQuote introduces a new tool, enabling you to perform custom searches for options from within a quote. Users can now search for items in iQuote through a list of part numbers or a set of keywords.

Option 1: search for a list of parts, e.g. “507720-B21, U4496E, 500656-B21”

  • iQuote returns details on all the valid parts you have entered, allowing you to add them to your quote in the normal way.
  • This is also a great way to check whether a particular part number works with the system unit you’re quoting – iQuote will let you know when a part you have chosen is incompatible with your system unit.
  • Sometimes you will be wanting to quote an option that doesn’t yet exist in iQuote (not common, but these things happen!). In that case iQuote will confirm the description to you but you won’t be able to add it to the quote. But all is not lost – our Support Team will be informed instantly, and will investigate and get back to you as soon as possible.

Option 2: search for keywords, e.g. “external SAS cable”

An extremely powerful feature – use it to find just about anything – by description, model name or technology.

  • Results are returned from multiple Option Categories; the category that has the highest average hit-rate is listed first.
  • All the search terms that iQuote can find are highlighted in the results, with Best Matches at the top.

iQuote is becoming more intelligent, giving Sales the knowledge and resources to build comprehensive quotes with minimal fuss. The search function will save you time, and build your sales confidence!
