Dell Sinks Deeper Into The Slush Pile, Enfactico Brace Thyself

MK-AS800_DELL_D_20081104181711.jpg

Dell is pushing for even more cuts from their budget. The computer maker has enacted a hiring freeze, is offering employees voluntary buyouts and asking workers to take one to five days off without pay. That’s not all. Freelancers are being cut, as is travel and there is a “reprioritizing” of projects and overall spending so says Dell spokesman David Frink to the WSJ.

A “reprioritizing” of projects and overall spending? Does that include Enfactico? Jess Blackburn from Dell Corporate Affairs told Agency Spy that:

“Nothing in what we’ve announced this week affects Enfatico and we won’t speculate on any possibilities that would.”

Good to know. However, we will happily speculate where Dell will not. How long before spending cuts start to effect Enfatico’s spending plans directly? One month or sixth? Until then, onward ho!
