iQuote Clone Info on Dashboard

June 22, 2011

Distributors that provide Resellers with iQuote via the iQuote Clone Service get real-time reports in iQuote. From the Management Page Management Users can view the following information for each Clone in a simple table:

  1. Margin by HP Business Unit.
  2. Total Users and Active Users (last 3 months).
  3. Quotes generated MTD and last month.

We’ll be extending this function in the near future to allow Distributors to create new Clones.

Rise of the Clones

August 20, 2010

Resellers running iQuote is on the up. In the UK, where iQuote has been around for 18 months, we are seeing acceleration in the number of Resellers that use Distributor iQuote Clones. We now operate nearly 20 clones, nearly double the number just a month ago. The scale of Reseller using clones varies from small to very large VARs. We’re obviously delighted that HP’s Gold Preferred Partners, Preferred Partners and CDP Managed Accounts are leveraging iQuote. We are also pleased to welcome some Resellers that are new to HP as they “defect” from other brands!

Clones aren’t the only way to access iQuote. Some of our Distributors offer iQuote through their own eCommerce sites and well over a hundred Resellers use iQuote this way.

iQuote Clones from Distribution

August 9, 2010

What is an iQuote Clone? A “Clone” is an exact replica of a Distributor’s internal version of iQuote that is provided to Resellers by Distribution.

Why Should a Reseller Set Up an iQuote Clone?
Resellers get the full functionality of iQuote when they set up an iQuote Clone. Price, stock, user management, statistics, custom export and full use of iQuote’s features are accessible with an iQuote Clone. There is no IT setup or installation required – it can go live quickly and easily. The Clones are dual branded: Distributor and Reseller but the quote pipeline is private for the Reseller. The Clone displays the Reseller Buy Price and Host Distributor’s stock levels.

How do Resellers obtain an iQuote Clone?
If you are a HP Reseller and would like to use iQuote speak to your HP Authorised Distributor. If you would like a contact name or a list of iQuote-ready Distributors please email: register@channelcentral.net.

How much does it cost to have an iQuote Clone?
channelcentral.net does not charge Resellers for Distributor iQuote Clones. Your Distributor may charge you for the service however. Note also that some Distributors have integrated iQuote into their store offering and this can have specific benefits (such as the capability to place an order directly) so is different to a Clone.
