Email HP iQuote Quotations Directly

June 29, 2012

New version of the Mail Me export can now Mail Anyone! A few months ago HP iQuote introduced Mail Me: a way users could email themselves a copy of the Saved Quote. This has been improved to allow the user to replace their email address with any email address (most likely the person the quote is for). Hopefully very useful.

HP iQuote Product Introductions

June 22, 2012

A wave of new HP ProLiant Gen 8 Server Ranges plus some Thin Client news. We’re behind on our product announcements so here’s a quick update. HP iQuote now features:

  • HP ProLiant DL160 Gen8
  • HP ProLiant DL360e Gen8
  • HP ProLiant ML350e Gen8

and there’s more in production including the HP ProLiant DL380e Gen8, BL465 Gen 8 and DL385p Gen 8.

For each of these new Ranges we’ll follow up with a more detailed Blog article.

HP Thin Clients: following a number of requests to include HP’s range of Thin Clients in HP iQuote this is happening. We should see a number of models appearing in early July for the UK initially. Not complex to configure but feedback was to allow HP iQuote users a single location to generate quotations and there is potential in the future to include in tools like Product Finder.

We’re always happy to receive feedback from our HP iQuote Users simply use the Feedback Form.
