XML & iQuote

September 3, 2009

XML offers a number of possibilities for iQuote. Dan, our Technical Solutions Director, has been looking at ways that iQuote could be improved and extended by using XML. Through this work we have already achieved Quote Versioning:

  • If a user has a quote but exports it in different versions a number of times we are capturing that. Soon users will not only see saved quotes, they’ll also see exported quotes linked to their saved quotes. This is a strong step forward for re-quoting and quality recording.

Looking ahead Dan is looking at whether XML could be a good way to import customer-specific pricing including Bid Letters (OPG in the case of HP). As always we’ll keep you posted.
