Learn More About Alexa for Business

Today, people spend too much of their day on tedious tasks at work, like managing their calendars, dialing in to meetings, or searching for information. Amazon Alexa can help solve this problem by acting as an intelligent assistant at work.

Alexa lets people use their voice to interact with technology so they can spontaneously ask questions in a way that feels natural. Alexa can simplify conference rooms, allowing meeting attendees to start meetings and control the equipment in the room by simply using their voice. Alexa can also do things around the workplace, like providing directions to a conference room, notifying IT about a broken printer, or placing an order for office supplies.
