How to convince our boss to use brand DELL beside NEC

hi...



I?m norhuda, assistant manager from IT department in an organisation.

Actually now we ?re in process to get approval about our vendor to provide laptop to our committee.

But last Friday in approval's meeting, our tender about laptop was rejected.

They want to know specific why we choose Dell for laptop and not NEC as a cheaper one.






So what is ur opinion and what statement that we can use to convince them??

Pls assist me because we need that approval urgently to send the capform.



Regards,

huda

I cannot speak about NEC

In reply to: How to convince our boss to use brand DELL beside NEC

but I have a Dell. I can repair my Operation System without losing files and folders. My daughters Hp and sons Compaq, if I try to repair it, everything is lost. Most time spent on recovering files and folders before re-installing the system.

I hope you have a network for the employees to put their files and folders and create a backup daily. If this is the case, then the recovery of files and folders wouldn't be as crucial.

factor in purchasing computer equipment for companies that buy them in bulk. We used to have Dell and in 2000 we replaced 1500 computers. We selected a vendor to do it and that vendor used Compaq and HP. We now still use Compaq & HP but replace them with our own desktop people. With that many PC's the number of repairs issues is about the same as it was with Dell. We don't have issues with losing data that is more of a process issue then a hardware issue. Your IT dept most likely has a Desktop Image to keep all the computer standardized.

off to go to the cheaper offer. Another thing you need to consider is if your company has the resources to support them internally compared to having the vendor support them.

The boss is always right.

That's rule 1. Rule 2 is "When the boss is wrong, see rule 1."

Also if your contract is dependent on this, go with what the customer or boss wants. These machines from the usual names are fungible.
