Summary
  • Compaq Computer Corp's tremendous revenue growth since its start in 1983 is due to reasons beyond the obvious good timing of product introductions, quality management, reliance on the dealer channel for distribution, and luck. The underlying secret of Compaq's success is unbending intent: the Deskpro 386 is really a midrange minicomputer dressed as a personal computer, but it is sold only through the dealer channel. The problem with this strategy is that Compaq cannot compete against comparative performers, namely technical workstations, using just this channel. Compaq will likely succeed because customers have grown knowledgeable and now need the availability, service, and pricing that a dealer can offer; Compaq's management will know when the dealer channel no longer serves it needs. Compaq's growth should continue through 1992 as demand for 80386-based machines increases.
