Device makers will be able to integrate Alexa for Business into their enabled endpoints.
Amazon brought exciting news with today’s announcement regarding Alexa for Business. Businesses have already be able to utilize Alexa through Echo devices, but in an effort to downsize the tech and cost for these customers, Amazon has made the AVS Device SDK available. By installing this simple extension on their Alexa-capable devices, they can register and use Alexa for Business without any additional expensive equipment. This means more cohesive communication in the office, board room, or training room.
This opens up a lot more flexibility for business users, and BlackBerry users. BlackBerry is one of the key partners named to help Amazon develop more solutions for their consumers.
