Alexa for Business: Is it For You?
If you’re a business owner
or if you’re an employee that primarily works in an office, you know what it’s
like to be plagued with tasks and environments that kill productivity.
A printer breaks, the
speaker in the conference room doesn’t work, or the boss that asks for a set of
facts that you don’t have on hand. All of these things can distract employees
from their tasks.
With the technological
advances that we have today, there is no reason why employees should have to
suffer through many of the tedious tasks that eat up their day. Alexa by Amazon
is a smart assistant that can help employees get through their day without
having to schedule their own appointments or search for information.
Alexa can help people by
letting people use their voice to direct Alexa in a way that feels natural to
them. Alexa can now allow meeting attendees to control the equipment in meeting
rooms just using their voices, provide directions to a conference room, put in
a ticket for broken printers or even place orders for new office supplies.
Check out what Alexa for
business can do for you and your business.

Alexa can allow workers to
move seamlessly through their day by keeping track of your to-do list, manage

automatically dial into conference calls for you when it’s time. Forgot to
collect facts for the meeting? No problem! Alexa can quickly pull up the latest
set of data from your business for you. All you have to do is ask it to do so.
Alexa Makes Meetings Easy

struggle with the equipment in the meeting room. Alexa simplifies the process
