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.
