SupportAssist for Business PCs

Keeping your PC fleet productive with intelligent data-driven differentiators at your fingertips.

What is SupportAssist? SupportAssist is our intelligent connectivity technology that differentiates us from the crowd. Go beyond what you should expect from traditional support by unlocking the full power of the ProSupport Suite for PCs. Maximize your experience by connecting to SupportAssist for Business PCs through our online portal TechDirect anytime, anywhere. By connecting you get access to our differentiators like…

  • Library of Dell-authored scripts to automate tasks and remediate issues across the fleet.
  • Fleetwide proactive and predictive detection for faster issue resolution*.
  • Quick analysis of health, application experience and security scores in a single screen.
  • Automate creation and deployment of custom update catalogs for Dell BIOS, driver, firmware and applications.
  • Flexibility to tailor your views and dashboards in TechDirect.

By deploying SupportAssist to your Dell PC fleet, you can access these features through your personalized TechDirect dashboard.

Furthermore, testing found you can initiate device driver and firmware updates for an entire fleet in as little as 37 seconds. Go beyond break/fix support and experience the Dell Technologies difference.
