Michael Dell founded the company in 1984 in Austin, Texas, with an unprecedented idea -- by selling computer systems directly to customers, they could deliver the most effective computing solutions to meet the customer's needs.
Today Dell connects with more than 5.4 billion customers every day -- on the phone, in person, on Dell.com and, increasingly, through social networking sites.
Their 96,000 team members around the world are committed to making technology work harder for customers and communities.
They make technology more accessible to people and organizations around the world. They ship more than 110,000 systems every day to customers in 180 countries -- that's more than one every second.
