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.

New Feature in iCreate

July 2, 2015

Helping you Choose!

iCreate Help Me ChooseOur iCreate tool just got even better! The iCreate service is developed for Westcoast Distribution UK and is a Configure/ Price/ Quote tool for their HP Product Portfolio.

channelcentral have just released a new feature in the tool to help users create their perfect solution. The feature is called ‘Help Me Choose’. Once the user is logged into the tool they can select this new feature at any level from as early on as selecting the system type or product family through to individual models. Upon clicking ‘Help me Choose’ users will be presented with a number of criteria to select from. These options will act as a filter so that the user is then given the products that fit the criteria required. Not only will it significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to configure HP Solutions but it also enables less experienced sales staff to tackle complex customer requirements, freeing up your technical teams to support customers.

Configuring an HP Solution has never been simpler! Just look out for this button next time you login. image

iCreate 2.0 has landed at Westcoast

May 7, 2015

Configure, price and quote!

HP2707 - iCreate Banner

iCreate is a Configure/Price/Quote tool that channelcentral.net has developed exclusively for Westcoast Distribution UK. Its popularity has grown and grown and as a result, we are pleased to be introducing iCreate 2.0!

The tool is developed for Westcoast customers to configure HP products. The portfolio has recently been extended from just HP Workstations to now include Desktops, Notebooks, Tablets and Thin Clients. What’s more, the validation feature has been significantly developed to include alerts throughout a configuration – users are guided and given prompts to ensure compatibility.

iCreate fully enables Reseller partners to maximise HP PC Hardware opportunities, giving expert advice, actively enhancing the sales process without users even knowing it.  The iCreate tool is easy to use and, with the latest version improving functionality even more, it makes PC configuration accessible to all, not just Technical Whizzes!

Why not visit iCreate and take a look at the new interface and features?

Westcoast Partners are delighted with it:

“iCreate is such a fantastic and user friendly reseller tool. The fact that it now has the entire HP PPS catalogue available is fantastic. The validation note feature is brilliant, exporting makes it easy to get HP special bid pricing. The Thin client config finder is such a brilliant feature. A lot of work and thought has gone into this software development, credit to the geniuses who worked on this. All in all a really, really advanced and useful tool that will make it easier for sales to sell HP!”
Vanita Kalidas – Misco
