HP Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise in iQuote

October 30, 2015

It’s all change.

HPE-HPI-LogoIn light of the company separation on 1st November 2015, iQuote is going to look a little bit different next week! Users of the iQuote Configure, Price, Quote Software will already be prepared for the separation with different login screens for both organisations. Until now however, the look and feel of the tool has remained largely unchanged.

With the launch of the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) branding, iQuote for HPE Users will undergo a refresh. Users can expect to see the new logo and brand elements used throughout the tool.

It is important to note that there is no change to functionality or user login credentials. Users can expect to continue using the tool at the same excellent level of service they have been used to.

As we embrace this change, as we hope our customers do also, we look forward to a very bright future with continuous development to the iQuote tool for both HP Inc. and Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

VMware Selector live in iQuote

October 9, 2015

New Feature.

VMware SelectorAs a key HP Partner, VMware products have been available in iQuote for some time. In fact, there are several hundred VMware products to choose from in iQuote to help create the perfect solution.

It was identified that there are actually so many VMware products that it was proving difficult for users of the iQuote tool to know which selection to make. As such, HP, VMware and channelcentral have been working together to develop the VMware Selector.

The VMware Selector is a tool developed within iQuote which takes only compatible options with your HP system unit and displays them in categories. Users can then choose options to fit their requirements such as Product Range, Service Duration and Licence Type. iQuote will intelligently filter through hundreds of products and provide recommendations to the user making product selection simple.

Login to your iQuote account today and start building a better solution with HP and VMware. Better Together.

Retirement of HP Inc. “Swift for Printers”

October 1, 2015

iQuote Feature.

channelcentral announces the retirement of Swift for Printers in iQuote.

Swift for Printers was a feature available in certain iQuote instances that provided lookup of printer models by specification, and lookup of printer supplies by printer model.  This feature did not support the inclusion of printer products on quotes created in iQuote.

Due to low usage and a refocus on higher-demand features, Swift for Printers has now been retired.  General support for quoting printers will be evaluated by HP Inc. for future inclusion in iQuote.

iQuote weekly quote volume continues to grow! Watch this space and our other social media Channels for more exciting news on new products and features in iQuote, coming soon.

Top Recommended Options extended to HP ProLiant in HP iQuote

January 29, 2014

Drive options sales through Top Recommended Options in HP iQuote. First seen in PPS HP iQuote Top Recommended Options (TRO) has been extended to HP ProLiant. HP choose the TRO parts and it becomes the default option view for a system unit. From that view parts can be easily added to the Shopping Cart. Of course ‘view all options’ and ‘options search’ are still there too.

When a user exports to Excel the quotation will include TRO options but only if an option part from the same category is NOT in the Shopping Cart. So it’s intelligent up-selling.

HP iQuote now offers self-service Clones

January 27, 2014

Hosts that deploy Clones can now create them using the Admin Portal. Clones are a simple way for a Host to provide a free copy of HP iQuote to each individual customer. The site is identical to the Host’s own HP iQuote except it includes the Host’s margin. The Clone has complete autonomy over user access, the only restriction being that users must have the same email domain(s). For example, a Distributor may provide Clones to its Reseller customers individually.

Clone

Historically Hosts had to request Clones via email and it was a manual process. Now simply add them via the Admin Panel.

In addition, a point of detail – if the Host provides 2 prices in their data feed the Clones can now be based on either price.

If you have any feedback on this new feature please also use the Feedback link in HP iQuote or visit the HP iQuote User Group on LinkedIn.
