Improved Range Menu Labels in HP iQuote

December 22, 2011

Improvements to the Range Labels in the Menu for System Units make it easier to locate products. Now the first column on the Systems Menu page is wide enough to accommodate longer family names like “8200 Elite All-in-One” – better than an abbreviation “8200 AiO”.

Printer Finder new to HP iQuote

October 6, 2011

Printer Finder is a new feature that has been added to HP iQuote. Once logged in go to IPG Swift from the Banner Advert and there is a link to Printer Finder.

You first need to select the type of printer you are looking for. Your selection will then enable HP iQuote to filter out the printers and options that are not associated with the type of printer you have selected. For example, if you choose LaserJet, all Inkjet printers will be suppressed.

Then choose the printer attributes the customer wants:

As you go through the list and choose the options you want, iQuote will filter out the printers that do not contain the features that you have selected. It also shows you the number of Printers available so you don’t “over-filter”.

From this list, you can view the specifications for any of the printers (click the blue link):

View the Options either from the Spec Table (link at the bottom of the window) or using the orange button on the printer listing go directly to them:

The Unique Selling Point here is that all of the Printers/Options are shown with the Host’s Price and Inventory levels.

Current (initial) output for this is to a CSV file. Potential to provide an Excel export or, for those Hosts who offer HP iQuote via a Store, a Buy function. The plan is to extend this feature to PSG in the short-term and look at relevance to Servers, Storage & Networking products. Feedback always welcome – use the Feedback Form in HP iQuote or Tweet, Like, LinkedIn etc.

iQuote IPG Swift User Guide

September 13, 2011

Swift for printers on iQuote is so easy to use. If your Distributor or Reseller has IPG enabled a link will appear on the Home Page (Swift for Printers):

Once clicked you type in part of the Description or Part Number (e.g. MFP or C861) and then select from the list that appears – green circles denote current printers:

Current printers show Spec Table, price/stock of printer itself and a graphic – all Consumables/Care Packs with stock/price:

Discontinued printers will just show Consumables/Care Packs with stock/price:

Current “output” is CSV export but if there is demand we can fold in an “add a Basket/Kart” to allow a quote to be built (and sent as an Order to the Disti/Reseller) and maybe a full format Excel export and copy to clipboard etc.

From Home Page to results (if you know the part number) IPG Swift takes less than 5 seconds, CSV export 2 seconds.
