Hewlett Packard has launched a new quotation system for its army of distributors and resellers in order to help offer price and availability information to clients more easily and quickly.
The iQuote system has been developed by HP in partnership with channelcentral.net, which is responsible for managing the service. It is now available in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, South Africa and Canada.
The system has been designed to give information related to price, availability, promotion and incentives for the entire range of HP products including servers, printers, networking, storage, PCs and software.
The company said that the system will be available to distributors who take a subscription from channelcentral.net. The distributors will be able to use the software as a standalone system or integrate with existing software solutions.
“iQuote enables channel partners to provide fast, accurate quotes for improved customer satisfaction. The centrally managed platform also enhances channel partners’ ability to increase margins by attaching options and winning more business,” said Florian Reithmeier, VP for industry standard servers and converged infrastructure at HP EMEA
“HP’s focus remains strongly on the channel and we are committed to expand investments and coverage as part of our growth strategy,” he added.
