Add value, not cost
Performing hardware and software integration on new systems can be frustrating, complex and costly when you do it in-house. Even basic configuration tasks can eat away at limited IT resources, resulting in delay and disruption.
Dell configuration experts are here to help. We can install hardware components and software during the manufacturing process, so you receive your systems preconfigured and ready to go, with minimal or no customization needed by your in-house staff. Dell offers:
We install industry-standard components and the appropriate drivers at the point of manufacture, so your new PCs arrive ready to run, right out of the box. We can also source specific non-Dell components, such as network or graphics adapters, through our extensive supply chain and install them as part of our standard factory build. Finally, our experts can customize settings for CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor)/BIOS, jumper cables, ports, scripting and hard drive partitioning. When supporting documentation is needed, we can include it with the equipment itself using our Drop-in-the-Box service.
To help ensure that your new PCs have the same version of the same software, Dell experts can install your images, including any custom or proprietary software, at the factory. Our automated installation process saves hours in deployment time and reduces any potential post deployment issues. We can create image recovery CDs or DVDs and ship them with your systems for quick resolution of support issues. In addition, we can integrate packaged applications or custom applications as part of the standard factory load.
