    HP Takes a Few Jabs at Dell Over Business Sales
    HP claims that it is nabbing Dell’s large business customers
    Hewlett-Packard
    contends that is doing some damage to Dell’s dominance in the direct PC
    sales business. It was recently reported by DailyTech that Dell’s US
    market share dipped from 32% to 29.8% in the first quarter while HP saw
    its share rise to 18.5% (possibly due to the removal of one CEO).HP
    Vice President of Personal Systems Alberto Bozzo states that his
    company is providing a higher quality of service to its large business
    customers and that’s the reasoning behind its recent sales surge. From
    CNET:”We are displacing Dell in most of the bigger and strategic
    accounts. Most of our large customers are dissatisfied customers from
    Dell. They were dissatisfied with the services that haven’t been
    delivered, delivery times and with the quality of the product.
    Customers are asking to buy directly from us because of the quality of
    service of the direct relationship,” Bozzo said.Not surprisingly, Dell
    takes issue with any claims that HP is encroaching into its portfolio
    of large business customers. “According to IDC results for the fourth
    quarter in 2005, Dell held a 44.4 percent share of PCs shipped to large
    business customers (those with greater than 500 employees) in the U.S.,
    compared to HP’s 21.9 percent,” stated Dean Cline, a senior Manager at
    Dell.
