The Critical Combo: AI, Telemetry and Decades of Experience

Dell Technologies is harnessing the power of AI-driven automation to accelerate your team’s productivity.

User-friendly generative AI (GenAI) technology, like ChatGPT, has sparked a global transformation so impactful, it’s hard to imagine life without it. And while the rise in AI may seem like it happened overnight, Dell Technologies has been using AI for decades—over 36TB of telemetry data per day1—to help customers with their digital transformations.

We’re now pairing our decades of AI experience and top-ranked services with advancements in telemetry and GenAI. This combination results in hyper-efficient, automated IT support and supports driving a major boost in your team’s productivity.

Our online self-help success rate averages around 95%, with 50% of those cases originating as auto support case creations. This shift from a traditional customer service model to GenAI-driven, predictive support is creating waves. Sixty-two percent of IT leaders saw improved IT productivity by replacing manual routines with automated support.2 And, with our connectivity technology, IT admins can save more than 600 hours per year on automated tasks.3

Utilizing the powers of automation, we’ve revamped our “Contact Us” experience. Regardless of whether a customer needs to reach sales, customer care or technical support, they start at one single hub. This change resulted in a 20% reduction of “chat pollution” globally and prevented more than 16,000 customers from being misrouted. This unified “Contact Us” experience won our 48th award for this seamless experience.4

“We use the TechDirect portal to self-dispatch parts, and it’s cut the time in half that our techs spend repairing devices.” -Director of Technology Support, PXU5
