Dell Japan plans to increase the number of supermarkets and electronics mass merchandisers offering its personal computers by 20% to 600 this year as part of efforts to bolster PC sales to individuals. The company has increased its domestic market share via an online sales model that allows customers to select their own PC specifications, but most sales have been to corporate customers. To increase sales to consumers, the company plans to boost the percentage of sales achieved through retailers to 50% in fiscal 2009 from 10% at present. Dell will create a structure that enables customers who have purchased PCs online to get technical support and repairs via electronics mass merchandisers.
