Dell partners work in one of four categories. “Technology partners” is a category of companies that provide IT solutions. Such companies are at the forefront of Dell's development of channel partnerships. As a result, Dell aims for a “no barriers” approach to providing solutions that make the working lives of partners as easy as possible.
Dell is one of the most recognized names in IT thanks to its success over almost three decades. The company's revenue in 2012 was $63 billion, and it ranks as the world's third biggest seller of PCs.
IT Solution Providers
For IT solution providers, Dell offers servers, desktops, laptops, printers, software, and accessories. In other words, the company can supply a complete package to Dell partners.
Dell also caters for a range of markets. These include small and medium businesses, large enterprises, healthcare, government, and education. This could be good news for those solution provider companies that specialize in a certain market, or want to expand.

Support from sales teams
A broad number of payment and service options
No commitment to a minimum order
