Notifications goes live in iQuote

August 2, 2018

How long does it take you to notice something new in iQuote?

It is a big tool with a lot of features, and some users will go through the same process to quote each time. It therefore, might not always be obvious when a new feature has gone live or a new document has been added to the resources section.

We have built a solution! A Notification system has been introduced to make all Users aware of when we have got something new to talk about. A green bell icon can be seen in the top right-hand corner of your screen. When there is a new notification to read, a number of unread alerts will be shown. Clicking on this will open up the Notifications panel for Users to be able to read and/or dismiss alerts:

iQuote Notifications

If alerts are not dismissed they will remain in the panel for future reference. By clicking on a notification, it will display a pop-up, possibly with further information.

We are looking forward to utilising this feature and keeping Users informed. If you have any queries or feedback about Notifications, then please do let us know using the Support link within the iQuote tool.

NGQ integration with iQuote

July 19, 2018

The latest update to iQuote has been released. Working closely with our user base, we took onboard feedback to make it easier to load quotes into the HPE NGQ system. As such there are now two new ways to get the required information out of iQuote:

  1. Copy to Clipboard
  2. Export My Quote

When iQuote Users next login to the tool and create a quotation they can either click “Copy to Clipboard” and select “NGQ Format” in the modal dialogue or click “Export” and select “Excel (NGQ)”.

NGQ Export

We hope that this new functionality will be a welcome addition and well utilised by our Users.

Engage & Grow update in iQuote

July 17, 2018

Engage and Grow is an increasingly popular Sales Program for Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Channel. For years, the points rewarded as part of the Program have been recognised from iQuote sales.

With the Worldwide popularity of iQuote and the Engage and Grow Sales Program, it was felt that better visibility of the points available to the Sales Rep was needed when producing a quotation.

As such, a modification has been made in iQuote to allow users to see their Engage & Grow points when navigating through the Configure, Price, Quote Software. A breakdown of points will also be shown in a summary modal dialogue within the basket.

Engage and Grow Points in iQuoteThis visibility should serve to make the Sales Program more successful and increase the opportunity for reward to HPE Partners.

iQuote New Feature – Competitive Selector

December 19, 2017

A new and exciting feature has just been added to iQuote for Hewlett Packard Enterprise users. It is called the Competitive Selector and is designed for iQuote users to be able to compare like for like quotes. Let’s look at an example:

A customer tells their Account Manager that they have been quoted a DELL XXXX, and asks what HPE has to offer. The Account manager can go into iQuote and open up the Competitive Selector. Using the filters such as system type, form factor and product, iQuote can run an intelligent query to browse similar HPE products. The Account Manager will then be given a list of recommended HPE systems.

If users are looking to compare recommended products, there is an enhanced feature of the Competitive Selector called Key Selling Points. By hovering over the Key Selling Points button (visible when data is available) in Recommended HPE Systems, users will be presented with a list of the best features to aid with decision making:

It has never been easier to find and quote the right HPE solution. Login to iQuote today and see how much more HPE business you can win by using the Competitive Selector! Launch it from the Homepage:

Introducing our new Red Hat Product Selector

August 31, 2017

We are excited to announce the launch of a new Red Hat Product Selector. We have been working with Red Hat to develop a solution that guides customers through a selection of filters to assist them in their buying journey.

Initially, the Product Selector is only available for use inside our Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) iQuote Configure, Price, Quote software but in time, it could be available elsewhere.

The Red Hat Product Selector has made it easier than ever to build a 100% validated quotation.

Simply login to iQuote as normal, select your base HPE unit and once you are through to the configuration screen, select ‘Software’ and ‘Red Hat’ and you will be presented with a selection of filters to choose from. Once you have chosen your requirements, our intelligent Product Selector will recommend which Red Hat products are compatible to build you a complete HPE Server solution.

Visit iQuote today and have a look at this brilliant new feature:
