  • Internal Capabilities
    1. Cost-Efficient Build-To-Order Manufacturing

    - Unlike competitors, DELL does not apply the
    traditional value chain model
    2. DELL’s Direct Sales Strategy and Marketing
    Efforts
    - DELL’s ability to respond quickly gave it a
    significant advantage
    - Direct sales approach = Customer-
    driven system

    - Online technical support tools to reduce
    cost of telephone support calls
  • Internal Capabilities

    5. Entry into the White-Box PC Segment
    - Cheaper to reach many small businesses through the white-box dealers
  • External Relationships
    1. DELL and Its Customers
    - Focuses on customers’ needs and wants towards the products.
    - DELL’s R&D was customer-driven.
    2. Partnership with Suppliers
    - Best suppliers were picked
    - Partnership remains as long as their performance, cost, quality and
    leadership in technology is
    maintained
  • Issues in DELL & the Recommendations
    In April, 2010. DELL did not disclose proper information in its advertising (ie. No shipping charges mentioned).
    - Brian, New York
    - Customers have rights to know about what they purchase.
    - DELL should inform every cost available in
    its products. Hidden costs are not a good
    function in businesses.
  • Issues in DELL & the Recommendations
    Orders got messed up through phone-ordering services. Customer service was bad over the phone.
    - Kenneth, New Jersey
    - Despite having an efficient online customer service, DELL should not forgo its customer service in other dimensions (ie. phone).
    - Certain customers still do not prefer
    being served online.
  • Thank You!
