not a good sign for them:
They're probably just moving the call center to India or something to cut costs. not necessarily a sign of trouble.
Broken link. But I was tempted by the SunShine Girl.
for a sec i thought this thread was "dell takes another ****." lol
Poor Canada. Dell made it a bunch of promises, now it's pulling out...
More about it at this forum:
yup...they are pulling out to 'other areas around the globe', which means cheaper costs. ugh.
sad for the folks involved.
Hey, atleast Dell is selling Ubuntu on there computers.
Raised them above other PC makers for me.
This the link?
I wonder if Dell moved that call center to, say, Bangalore?
Well, not for Dell or the Dell shareholders.
Don't get me %$^@ started.
The six people that use it will be thrilled. The 1,000+ who lost their job won't so much
It looks like this is getting attention in the provincial government. The Ottawa Citizen has an article about how the Ontario government courted dell with $11 Million in "provincial training subsidies"... now 3 years later they pull out?
Now I'm sure the money did go to training the employees (and who knows if Dell was given or spent it all), but damn. All this fuss to only stay for three years? Dell must really be hurting or their business planning really sucks!
P.S. Les it's been awhile use Multiquote man
What's happening is that "North American" support is now at a 1:1 cost with the US Dollar - no longer cost effective to be in Canada.
Also, Michael Dell doesn't consider North America a growth market. He is pulling out more or less and setting up in the growth markets of China and India.
Not to mention, most of my friends, neighbors, and people at work have figured out their computer are horrible...
