Stream is a global outsourcing company headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, with more than 17,000 employees in 32 locations around the world. Dell will become a customer of Stream, continuing to utilize the El Salvador site for outsourced consumer sales and technical support services.

“We are pleased with our experience in El Salvador and its people and government. This allows us to leverage our long-standing relationship with Stream to continue providing the best possible U.S. Spanish-speaking and Latin American consumer sales and technical support from El Salvador. We appreciate the contributions of our El Salvador team in this effort.”” said Ray Roman, VP Dell global consumer operations and services. “We will do all we can to help our employees and our community partners through this transition.”

Dell continues to broaden the portfolio of technology products and services it offers in the country to both consumers and commercial customers. As of today, Dell is growing retail presence with local partners like Wal-Mart de Centro America. On the commercial business front, Dell continues to work with major local airlines, telecommunication carriers, banks, corporate groups and the government.

The site will provide English and Spanish-language support for Stream's North American and Latin American clients. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

El Salvador’s English and Spanish-speaking workforce will allow Stream to provide flexible customer service and technical support solutions for both North America and Latin America.

"We are extremely excited to enhance our relationship with Dell. This site's management and support professionals are extremely talented and experienced and they will clearly enhance our strength in our core support models of customer service, technical support and revenue generation.
