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.

But 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 help people take care of these tasks just by asking. Alexa can help people stay organized and focused on the things that matter, whether they are working in their office or at home.

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.

The Alexa for Business team is building new capabilities into Alexa that help professionals be more productive at work. In addition to teaching Alexa new things, we provide tools that administrators need to manage Alexa at scale across a large organization.

These new capabilities are unlocking a whole new set of use cases for Alexa, from the Office to Hotel Rooms, Restaurants and even sports stadiums.

Come join us and help us use the power of voice computing to solve completely new challenges!
