New Feature: iQuote Activity Report

May 31, 2011

Improved reporting from the iQuote Management Page live now. Download a report on demand that provide a Monthly view (current and historic). See graphic below.

Quote Activity Report

The report includes unique Quote ID, Quote Name, Creator, Dates (started and edited), Status, Family Name (e.g. DL380 G7), Systems v Options (Pitch Rate) and Value. So it can be used for a variety of report requirements. Specific reports on certain option types (for example) are available on request.

If you run current month you get Month to Date. We’ll add a CSV export shortly although you can copy and paste it. Note: if you have iQuote integrated into your Web Store the report INCLUDES that activity. Distributors cannot view data from their Clones but Clones can view their own data.

HP StorageWorks and iQuote

May 23, 2011

iQuote is not just for PCs and Servers. If you haven’t already used iQuote for HP StorageWorks please have a look. Many quotes already include StorageWorks products as options for Servers but there is an entire range of HP StorageWorks systems that can be quoted from iQuote.

Generally Distribution and Reseller Sales are more comfortable quoting HP ProLiant for example, however, iQuote makes quoting storage solutions from HP really easy. We are introducing a change to iQuote for HP StorageWorks that allows the user to stack multiple storage chassis into a single solution. It is incredibly easy to do and will allow a much higher percentage of configurations to be handled by iQuote.

Look out for more announcements around HP StorageWorks in H2 2011.
