Giorgio Magrin

Padova, Italy

Giorgio Magrin is the founder of Navoo, a web-company founded in 2013. Giorgio’s daily job is being the business development and project manager of the different branches of Navoo.

Navoo develops web sites, Alexa Skills of its own, Alexa Skills for other companies and it’s a Solution Provider Qualified for Alexa Smart Properties.

Giorgio found out in 2017 that Amazon allowed developers to create Skills for Alexa, and went to London to buy an Echo device (that was not sold in Italy). When Alexa was released in Italy in 2018, Navoo was already ready to publish a game Skill.

From that day, Navoo has developed more than 35 Skills for Alexa.
Navoo customers are international brands from different markets (services, show business, automotive and more).

During 2022, after a long phase of internal development of an own solution, Navoo was approved by Amazon as a Solution Provider Qualified for Alexa Smart Properties. That means the possibility to provide Alexa to resorts, hotels, B&B and senior living properties in Italy.
