Dell and Wal-Mart to test in-store tech services
Dell and Wal-Mart have decided to test out a new service offering in 15 Texas Wal-Mart locations to offer tech support services to Wal-Mart shoppers.
Thew new Solution Stations will be in-store kiosks that will offer assistance to shoppers with things like PC repair, home entertainment system setup, wireless networking, etc.
Looks like the service will be offered to anything Wal-Mart carries and not just limited to Dell branded equipment.
If the trail goes well I’m sure we’ll see this offering expand…but there’s a decent chance it won’t go well so don’t hold your breath. People that know what they’re talking about most likely won’t work for what Wal-Mart and Dell would be willing to pay them.
