That’s where Dell Mobility Solutions come in, and we’ve helped lots of people just like you make the right decisions to make their business more mobile.
We’ve seen how small- to medium-sized business (SMB) customers can fully embrace mobile to deliver solutions no matter where they are in the country. Dell Mobility Solutions eliminates concerns around security and manageability, while boosting business productivity with a brand customers trust, backed by innovative and industry-leading technology. With Dell, SMB customers gain support over the entire lifecycle of their mobile strategy, from definition and deployment to management and ongoing enhancement.
It can be dizzying for SMB owners to select the right hardware for their on-the-road staff. But with the right help, it is simple and you can find solutions in everything from Dell’s Ultrabook lineup to our popular Latitude tablet depending on how your core business operates.

SMB owners might want to latch onto the Ultrabooks trend currently sweeping across the world. These super-portable and thin laptops are often showcased for their design, and offer a whopping punch in terms of processing power. Dell’s XP13 Ultrabook can be outfitted with the Intel Core i7 processor and Intel HD 3000 graphics card, ideal for any data-heavy application. It weighs just three pounds and is so slim it rivals any other ultra-skinny PC.
Its design is meant to be attractive but also functional: the full-size backlit keyboard illuminates your work so you can be productive in low-light situations. An integrated button glass touchpad is also a standout feature.
System imaging is another key add-on an SMB owner will appreciate. This tool lets Dell develop, validate, deploy, and maintain the hard drive images of large and small companies. An image consists of the operating system, drivers, and software applications stored on the hard drive. This means your army of Ultrabooks will come preloaded with software you need to run your business, giving your IT staff more time to focus on growth and not installing programs.
Also appealing for XPS customers is the addition of Pro Support: Customer service gets a new polish with Pro Support, which offers in-person support for any XPS concern within two hours. Imagine how useful Pro Support can be when you need a problem solved quickly and don’t have time to wait on a phone line to get the answers to your questions.

Also, a issue for many SMB owners is data protection; with desktops, an array of services are often utilized to make sure nothing is stolen or lost but with mobile hardware it can be a bit trickier. That said, Dell has made sure its customers are protected at all times. Dell Data Protection lets you easily safeguard critical business data on desktops, laptops, USB thumb drives, external storage devices and optical media. It’s simple to set up and gives business owners peace of mind so they can focus on their essential responsibilities. Data Protection is offered on the Latitude line of laptops.
Using tablets is also recommended for SMBs with a very mobile work force. Dell is positioned to be a reliable source for SMB owners looking to go the tablet route with lightweight Latitude ST tablets include an array of Windows Office business applications and docking capabilities in case customers want to work on their tablet at their desks. The tablet features a front-facing 720p camera and a 5.0MP back-facing camera, along with a stunning 10.1" WXGA (1280 x 800) display.
