PLANO, Texas -- April 23, 2013

Organizations are increasingly looking to provide flexible, mobile working
environments to reduce costs and retain a talented workforce, but planning,
deploying and managing these environments can strain an IT department. The new
Flexible WorkStyle offering from Dell Services provides IT managers a complete
solution designed to enable location-independent connectivity and
collaboration, reduce costs, maximize efficiency and security, and provide
access to the best talent for their business.

Using many of Dell’s own best practices, Dell’s Flexible WorkStyle offering
delivers a range of services with the following benefits and offerings:

  *Customized deployment and delivery: Dell designs unified communication and
    collaboration solutions with the optimal mix of on-premise, cloud and
    hybrid scenarios to meet current and projected business needs while
    helping reduce risk, cost and time to implementation
  *Mobile technologies: Employees can be contacted via a single number
    regardless of the device they use; collaboration is facilitated through
    shared content from Microsoft Office applications via tablet or mobile
  *Collaborative technologies: Communications capabilities integrated in core
    collaboration tools used by employees every day allows them to quickly and
    easily interact with peers, partners and customers via phone, email,
    instant message, audio, video and web conference
  *Improved efficiencies and reduced enterprise costs: Converging email,
    voice mail, telephony, audio and video conferencing in a unified interface
    over an IP network allows for a single point of contact for the entire
    suite of technology, software and services
  *Increased productivity: Enterprises can reduce resources and time spent on
    travelling by connecting employees through Microsoft SharePoint®, formal
    and informal business communities, Microsoft Lync® and other tools;
    disruptions are minimized with Dell ProSupport and 24/7 online and phone
    support services
  *Talent recruitment and retention: Companies can provide talent with the
    flexible work schedules and options they demand, while enabling talent
    acquisition from a more diverse pool of workers who may be geographically
    remote from the office

Dell partners with companies’ IT departments to develop the Flexible WorkStyle
offering that fits their needs, working with internal departments such as
human resources, finance, legal and communications to develop a solution that
resolves enterprise-wide challenges presented by complex remote working
environments. Through this holistic approach, Dell helps customers
successfully support a mobile workforce.

Repeatable technical architectures and experienced consulting services can
ensure reduced risk, cost and time to successful implementation of solutions.
Customers have a single point of contact for systems integration, business
process application, infrastructure architecture, operations and management.
An end-to-end solutions provider, Dell is able to offer customers the service
they need from a single source, simplifying and streamlining the deployment of
the Flexible WorkStyle offering.

Realizing the benefits of Flexible WorkStyle consulting for its own employees,
Dell has implemented a ‘Connected Workplace’ program to create virtual work
environments across the globe and deliver freedom and agility to its
workforce. One out of every five Dell team members utilizes the Connected
Workplace program, which spans 37 locations spread through 26 countries. With
the Flexible WorkStyle offering, Dell is able to harness talent from around
the world to develop the most innovative solutions for its customers.


“Dell has experienced first-hand that organizations embracing the increasingly
mobile workstyle can be more productive and better able to secure top talent,”
said Kevin Jones, vice president and general manager, Infrastructure & Cloud,
Dell Services. “Our goal is to make it easy for customers to enable flexible
work environments where people can connect and collaborate effectively,
regardless of location, so a distributed workforce becomes a competitive edge
for the company rather than a communication headache.”

“At Dell, we use Flexible WorkStyle offerings under our internal brand of
Connected Workplace. Since the 2011 launch, Connected Workplace has enabled
Dell team members to find new ways to work, which drives business results and
focuses on the value of results, rather than where the work gets done,” said
Dane Parker, vice president of facilities for Dell, and co-executive sponsor,
Dell Connected Workplace. “Connected Workplace allows our global team to grow
and thrive, positively impacting how we serve customers. Internal job
satisfaction metrics demonstrate that team members value this program, which
also has allowed us to reduce our collective environmental footprint.”
