About the Company:
iQuote Xpress was founded by 3 sales guys who grew tired of 1) observing proposals scribbled on the back of napkins and brochures 2) witnessing costly quotation mistakes 3) failing to secure business because a sales representative did not have the necessary product information at hand and 4) losing orders because a proposal was not submitted timely. They also noticed how some sales representative would spend countless hours attempting to create a “proposal masterpiece” which unfortunately, kept them behind a desk and not in front of customers selling product. Simply put, they felt there had to be a better way to generate a winning proposal.
The founders assembled a team of programmers, designers and engineers and after a few years of research and development, produced the iQuote Xpress SaaS proposing system. Their idea for a simple proposal tool resulted in a comprehensive sales management system with web catalogs, contact management, account administration and sales activity reports.
Most importantly, iQuote’s creators produced a proposal device which easily generates immediate, detailed, consistent and accurate proposals including product specifications, pictures and pricing. They even incorporated prompts and a tutorial so that a new sales representative is effortlessly guided though the proposal process.
In today’s business world, companies need to find every competitive angle. The iQuote Xpress group has provided a significant advantage with the ultimate solution in quotation software technology.

Our product configurator allows businesses to apply dynamic pricing schemes to their products and services. This tool utilizes a set of rules which enables sales representatives to select the right product combinations and define pricing of services. The configurator prevents compatibility errors through the application of complex algorithms. These algorithms act as constraints, ensuring that only a valid product or service will result out of the configuration.
The Configurator significantly reduces the time needed to define the appropriate price for a service or assembly of products by centralizing and associating items. The intuitive design makes the complex analysis of the variables that define the pricing process appear simple as your sales representatives and project managers make selections in a sequence from a single window.
The iQuote Xpress product configuator eliminates errors and makes the quoting process for sales representatives and project managers much easier.
The configuator is an extremely useful tool for businesses that face the following challenges:
- Offering customer products that are defined by quantitative (weight, distance, length) or qualitative (color, material, brand) parameters
- Establishing service charges based on a number of specific requirements
- Configuring an assortment of related products of limited compatibility
