Dell joins the @UK Network

Feb 23, 2006
Dell Inc, a trusted and diversified information-technology supplier and partner, has joined the @UK supplier network. The company sells a comprehensive portfolio of products and services directly to customers worldwide, meaning customers deal directly with the manufacturer, offering one point of contact for all your computing needs and complete peace of mind. Dell is based on a simple concept: by selling computer systems directly to customers, it could best understand their needs and efficiently provide the most effective computing solutions to meet those needs. This direct business model eliminates retailers that add unnecessary time and cost, or can diminish Dell's understanding of customer expectations. The direct model allows the company to build every system to order and offer customers powerful, richly-configured systems at competitive prices. Dell offers specialised solutions for all relevant sectors served by the @UK network including Local and Central Government, Schools, Healthcare and Higher Education.

Barry Evans, National Local Government Sales Manager, Dell UK, said “By working directly with our customers, we are able to gain a real understanding of their needs and requirements, and deliver technology solutions tailored to their needs".

“Working together with @UK means Dell is able to reach out to many public sector organisations’ back-office systems through just one connection to their network. Customers can raise a requisition, have it approved and then pass it directly to us, without the need for a paper trail. At the same time we can e-invoice back to the customer, accurately quoting all customer order and specification details. This saves customers both time and money and ensures greater accuracy of the information flow.”
