Having conquered the home, Amazon takes on the office by using its voice platform to streamline corporate tasks.
Alexa is on the way to work.
Amazon’s Alexa for Business service aims to give your conference rooms and your desk a much better interface for connecting to meetings, calendars, tasks, and company data.
The Amazon Echo has brought the Alexa voice assistant to over 20 million homes around the world. It’s made it easier for people to set timers in the kitchen, turn on lights throughout the house, play their favorite songs and order household supplies–without ever touching a mouse, a phone or a physical switch or button.
“If voice is the natural interface for dealing with things in your home, why not do it at work,” said Amazon CTO Werner Vogels in announcing Alexa for Business at the 2017 AWS re:Invent conference.
