Express Service Code

An Express Service Code is simply a mathematical conversion of your System Service Tag into a purely numeric format allowing for easy entry into Dell's automated call-routing system. Enter this number, using a touch-tone telephone, into the automated call-routing system when contacting Dell for assistance.

Benefits of the Express Service Code
The Express Service Code routes calls to the appropriate service queue, thereby offering the following advantages:
  • It helps avoid numerous transfers of your call.
  • It reduces the possibility for misdiagnosis because calls are transferred directly to the correctly trained specialist.
  • It reduces menu selections, which keeps you from choosing from complicated telephone menus, shortening your overall wait time.
  • The Express Service Code is converted back to a System Service Tag and automatically places your system configuration into the technician's support applications once you are connected.
