Fixed QR code scan error on some systems.
Service Tag lookup not intuitive
I am a consultant/engineer. I service many servers and businesses. I tell people all the time to replace their servers and computers and their first question is... how old is the one I've got?
This tool would be great if I could just plug in the ST quickly of an old server or computer and pull the age/ship/warranty info.
As it is now you have to go into a random product and then you can enter a ST. This doesn't make sense.
Is the app a promo tool for current gen products and the access to old equipment info is a happenstance? If so, this is wrong. The app should be a tool for persons managing new and old equipment and selling new.
Dell continues to miss the mark on making their information open and useable. I hope this app gets a rework and a new consideration.
Come on dell
Get your gadgets working.
Doesn't work for me.
Good, but incomplete attempt by dell
Installed app because wanted to lookup service tags and (in the AppStore description) it appeared to simply scan the service tag barcode for access to warranty info/original hardware configuration info/manuals/error code info/etc...it does not work this way...it only works with some products that have a QR code. The only way to do a service tag lookup is to select a random product (I selected a poweredge server) and then select service tag lookup. The service tag lookup should be the very first thing that a user encounters in a dell app of this nature, but it is awkward to accomplish a svc tag lookup because of the design. Love the info that appears for the server section in that it provided internal and external info, videos, diagrams.
Product selection is not complete and lacks consistency across the various product lines...I don't really care about consumer-targeted products, but this app shows three Inspiron laptops instead of even one latitude laptop...and only shows precision workstations instead of Optiplex desktops...venue 7/8 instead of venue 11 and latitude-based tablets, etc.
Dell has a neat concept, but it just seems partially finished. Uninstalling.
