Resource provider, Intersell, has officially released its hosted online quoting tool, QuoteBuilder.
The tool allows resellers to create and distribute professional quotes based on data from broad-based distributor, Ingram Micro. It can be used to automatically price a solution correctly, send the quote in HTML format to email clients and contains a 'click-to-order' mechanism.
"It enables small- to medium-sized resellers to drive some real efficiency around quote generation and order processing through their website as well," Intersell general manager, Wayne Troy, said. "Resellers can get on and do their business as opposed to worrying about these aspects, which can be very time consuming and complex to do on an individual basis."
QuoteBuilder comes in two formats - standalone, or integrated with Intersell's TechLink4U ecommerce tool. Pricing for the standalone QuoteBuilder or TechLink4U is $4500 for a once-only license fee, followed by $150 per month for back-end services including hosting, data, credit card and gateway transaction fees as well as marketing content and future upgrades.
The combined module costs $7000 for a license fee and $200 per month for services.
"All of these tools are about creating and providing resellers with the means to increase their revenue, broaden the product range they sell and service their customers better," Troy said.
Intersell is also in the early stages of developing a software licensing module that will enable end-users to choose the correct licensing for them and order it via a TechLink4U website. The company will begin beta testing the service at the end of the year and expects to release it early next year.
TechLink4U was launched in September to provide resellers with the tools to build a hosted website utilising product information from Ingram Micro's catalogue.
