HP Networking as Options for HP ProLiants in iQuote

July 27, 2011

Many, many HP Networking Products are now in iQuote. The most requested addition to iQuote from iQuote Users is, without doubt, HP Networking. We’ve made some moves in that direction by making products visible in iQuote, as options for HP ProLiant Servers (300 Series so far). There’s more work to do to make it intuitive and ensure we have the right portfolio in place.

We would welcome your feedback on progress so far but bear in mind there is more integration planned.

HP iQuote & KVM Adapters

July 27, 2011

For HP ProLiant Rack-Mount Servers iQuote now prompts the user to add a KVM Adapter. We’ve used the Blue Warning in the Validation Checklist to recommend that you should offer a KVM Adapter as they are almost always required and rarely quoted. Once added the Blue Warning turns Green, but if the customer doesn’t need one it can be ignored as Blue Warnings are not critical.
