iQuote System Unit Filtering

March 31, 2011

New Global Setting for iQuote. We have a few Distributors that don’t carry the full list of HP systems that are available. More common with BTO A Models SKUs where it is possible to have dozens of systems that rarely sell. To accommodate these customers iQuote now has a Global Setting which we can apply for iQuote Hosts: “only display systems that I provide a price for”.

The plan is to also have this setting available against Options but we would advise caution here as a customer may be looking for something that is either new or obscure that potentially wouldn’t display in iQuote if this switch is enabled.

If you are an existing iQuote Host please contact us if you would like us to apply System Unit Filtering in your iQuote system(s).

New Smart Buy Option Icons in iQuote US

March 30, 2011

Locate Smart Buy Options easily in iQuote. We are rolling out a new feature for our US users. It’s a visual aid in iQuote that appears against Smart Buy (promotional) options as follows:

SB Options

Over the next couple of days we’ll ensure we have every Smart Buy option covered. Hopefully a major timesaver that also helps iQuote users to get to the best possible price for their customers.


iQuote Clipboard

March 30, 2011

The iQuote Clipboard is now available for US users of iQuote!

There is a new function available in iQuote for US users called the iQuote Clipboard. The idea came from a customer request – they use the iQuote Clipboard to paste the customer’s requirement so that they can view it on screen without switching windows. We will make this feature available to the rest of the world very soon.

In Firefox the iQuote Clipboard even has a built-in spell checker and custom dictionary (this is not available in IE8). Note that the contents of the iQuote Clipboard are temporary and so are not stored against the Saved Quote.










We hope that this makes using iQuote a better experience for our users.
