IN THE BEGINNING
channelcentral was formed in 2007 with the purpose of simplifying and consolidating repetitive tasks in the IT Distribution channel via business tools and services. The four founding Shareholders, Mike Jones (Chairman), Tim Moyle (CEO/CFO), Emma Moyle (Accounts Manager) and Dan Mason (CTO), are still with the company today.
CHANGING THE CHANNEL
channelcentral's flagship service, iQuote, was born back in 2008. While looking for opportunities to really help Manufacturers work with the Channel, and differentiate, some of the channelcentral team started to look at product configurators. At the time, any configuration tools were sales-unfriendly, lacked integration and were aimed at the Enterprise market. channelcentral’s target market was Channel Sales, our vision was to create a tool that offered configuration, pricing, inventory, promotions and incentives in one single tool. Importantly, it had to live INSIDE the Channel, not be served to it.
CPQ tools created by channelcentral have transformed the way that the Channel sells complex products and solutions. channelcentral CPQ tools enable users to be more self-sufficient, productive and drive sales revenues, whilst reducing error rates. Furthermore, embedding CPQ tools in eCommerce Stores allows customers to self-serve at times to suit them, reducing the overhead on Distributors and Resellers as well as reducing Quote Turn Around Times (TATs).
