Alexa for Business from Amazon Web Services makes it easy for organizations to use Alexa in the workplace, providing tools to manage Alexa devices, enroll users, and assign skills at scale. Now you can build smart custom skills using the Alexa Skills Kit and Alexa for Business APIs and make them available as private skills to organizations.
With Alexa for Business, organizations can provide shared Alexa devices for anyone to use in common areas around the workplace as well as personal Alexa devices for employees to use. Shared devices allow Alexa to simplify conference rooms, and help around the office, and anyone can access them. Personal devices let Alexa help users be more productive throughout their day, at work or at home.
Alexa for Business enables organizations to invite users to enroll their personal Amazon account with their Alexa for Business account. This lets them continue to use the Alexa skills they’ve already enabled in their personal Amazon account, as well as the work skills provided by their organization, on any of their devices, at work or at home.
Build skills to start meetings and control conference-room equipment settings using voice. Alexa for Business APIs allow you to build skills so that Alexa can work with additional equipment or perform specific tasks in conference room environments, such as dimming the lights or lowering the blinds.
