For those that are new to Configure, Price, Quote (CPQ) tools it can be hard to understand what an integration could look like and how it can work for your business.

The following diagram shows a typical CPQ integration for one of our customers. channelcentral offer the Software as a Service (SAAS) to their customer (CPQ Host) so they can make their sales processes more efficient. For those customers that would like to gain maximum efficiencies, the service is extended to their customers (CPQ Consumer) through webstore integrations. The CPQ tool suddenly becomes very powerful as it has B2B and B2C functionality to open up your market and provide real-time reporting. Whichever CPQ Service and level of integration is required, you can be assured of on-going channelcentral support and lifecycle management as part of your SAAS contract.

HP iQuote now offers self-service Clones

January 27, 2014

Hosts that deploy Clones can now create them using the Admin Portal. Clones are a simple way for a Host to provide a free copy of HP iQuote to each individual customer. The site is identical to the Host’s own HP iQuote except it includes the Host’s margin. The Clone has complete autonomy over user access, the only restriction being that users must have the same email domain(s). For example, a Distributor may provide Clones to its Reseller customers individually.


Historically Hosts had to request Clones via email and it was a manual process. Now simply add them via the Admin Panel.

In addition, a point of detail – if the Host provides 2 prices in their data feed the Clones can now be based on either price.

If you have any feedback on this new feature please also use the Feedback link in HP iQuote or visit the HP iQuote User Group on LinkedIn.


iQuote with your Terms & Conditions

August 27, 2010

Hosts can now publish their own Terms & Conditions on iQuote. At the footer of every iQuote ‘instance’ is a Legal link to Terms & Conditions. The default page has’s Terms and Conditions of site use. Hosts that allow their customers access to iQuote may want to apply their own legal Terms & Conditions. As a result users will be able to see the Host’s Terms and Conditions and not the standard iQuote T’s and C’s. This small adjustment makes iQuote more aligned to your business practices.
