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:
