Putting the Spotlight on AQ’s Newest Search Filters

Humans tend to be creatures of habit. You have probably been searching AQ the same way for years, and maybe even memorized the model numbers of equipment you frequently quote. If we’ve learned anything over the last several months, it’s the right time to look for ways to streamline how we work. Applying AQ’s search filters as you navigate AQ’s vast product database is aeffortless way to discover new manufacturers and products that can bring value to your customers.    

AQ CPQ has several filter options available you may already be familiar with, but we want to share more about AQ’s two newest filters: The UL and Rebates’ filters. 

Locate UL-certified Equipment Easily 

AQ recently partnered with UL, a leading equipment certification company, to assist manufacturers with introducing products to new markets, and to provide an easy way for AQ customers to locate UL-certified products listed on AQ.  UL offers certification for foodservice equipment safety standards including, electric, fire, mechanical safety,  and equipment sanitation.

If you’re an AQ-listed manufacturer and you have AQ-listed products that are newly UL-certified, make sure you submit that information to the Content Services team at content@AQ-FES.com, so that we can get your product listing up to date.  

Search Energy-saving Equipment that’s Eligible for Instant Rebates 

Rebates are a great way for dealers to pass on savings to customers without decreasing your margins on equipment sales. Through our partnership with Energy Solutions, we’ve added a ‘Rebates’ badge on all energy-efficient equipment eligible for instant rebates through the Energy Solutions’ Instant Rebates! program. Currently, utility companies in eleven different U.S. states are participating in Instant Rebates! program, so if you sell equipment to operators in those states, you can quickly enroll in the program and start taking advantage of rebates for the benefit of you and your customers. 

To learn more about this new filter option, and how you can earn incentives on the sales of rebate-eligible equipment, join AQ and Energy Solutions for a webinar on Thursday, Aug. 27, at 11 a.m. EDT. You can learn more and register here.
