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.

Printer Finder new to HP iQuote

October 6, 2011

Printer Finder is a new feature that has been added to HP iQuote. Once logged in go to IPG Swift from the Banner Advert and there is a link to Printer Finder.

You first need to select the type of printer you are looking for. Your selection will then enable HP iQuote to filter out the printers and options that are not associated with the type of printer you have selected. For example, if you choose LaserJet, all Inkjet printers will be suppressed.

Then choose the printer attributes the customer wants:

As you go through the list and choose the options you want, iQuote will filter out the printers that do not contain the features that you have selected. It also shows you the number of Printers available so you don’t “over-filter”.

From this list, you can view the specifications for any of the printers (click the blue link):

View the Options either from the Spec Table (link at the bottom of the window) or using the orange button on the printer listing go directly to them:

The Unique Selling Point here is that all of the Printers/Options are shown with the Host’s Price and Inventory levels.

Current (initial) output for this is to a CSV file. Potential to provide an Excel export or, for those Hosts who offer HP iQuote via a Store, a Buy function. The plan is to extend this feature to PSG in the short-term and look at relevance to Servers, Storage & Networking products. Feedback always welcome – use the Feedback Form in HP iQuote or Tweet, Like, LinkedIn etc.

New iQuote feature – Swift for Printers

August 31, 2011

One of the most popular recent additions to iQuote is ‘Swift’. We believe it is the fastest way for IT Sales to generate pricelists for their customers.

Now, due to popular demand, we have launched a new tool called Swift for Printers. As the name suggests, it applies the methodology of iQuote Swift to HP’s Printer portfolio. Simply search for a printer (by part number or description), select the model you’re interested in, and click to view a complete list of compatible options and consumables in seconds – including your Availability and Pricing. It’s only one more click to export the complete list to a CSV (Excel-compatible) file. It includes discontinued printers but for current printers we also provide a Specification Table and the stock/price of the printer.

Give Swift for Printers a try today! As usual let us know what you think; and watch out for more IPG innovations on iQuote soon.
