What can Alexa do for You?
Amazon’s Echo is the most popular device in the new computing platform of voice-enabled technology. Powered by digital personal assistant Alexa, the Echo has found its way into the homes of many Amazon users. Alexa has primarily been for personal use but did you know the platform can also help your business needs? Alexa comes programmed with apps from Amazon but the Skills Kit lets developers try their hand at creating custom apps. This has caused third party developers to take advantage of voice-based technology to accelerate Alexa for business. Fortunately, Alexa’s built-in Skills Finder app lets you browse the catalog using only your voice to find the app that best benefits your business.
App Innovation for Voice Technology
Currently, the apps for business are limited, mainly focused on expediting time spent scheduling and giving an audio balance sheet for your monthly expenses. The meetings apps are versatile, one even designed for agile development. What sorts of apps might your business be interested in? Perhaps if your business idea is focused on language learning you could make an app that takes advantage of Alexa’s translator. Your idea could help facilitate commerce with an international audience with Alexa as the main conduit for conducting business. You may want to take advantage of voice technology for entertainment by creating a customizable portfolio of film, music, or games for the user. Maybe you want Alexa to compose an email for you or update your company’s blog. Now you can keep your eyes on your screen while using your voice as your primary writing tool. No matter your idea, Sunflower Lab will strive to help find a voice-activated solution for your business.
