Imagine waking up in a smart house, heading into a smart office, and never missing a beat. Now you can!
Sharp has partnered with Amazon Web Services to make the office smarter. AWS' new Alexa for Business allows employees to use voice commands to print, copy, schedule meeting rooms, begin conference calls, create service calls, and complete many other daily tasks. It's a simple as saying, "Alexa, ask Sharp to make a copy" or "Alexa, ask Sharp to make a service call."
As the first and only MFP provider working with Alexa for Business today, Sharp is providing key capabilities to customers by working with the service designed specifically for business. Integrating with Alexa for Business will allow Sharp’s customers to interact through simple, verbal commands with their Sharp Digital MFPs and the rest of the Sharp B2B portfolio, including AQUOS BOARD interactive display systems. This will improve overall usability while minimizing the necessity for product-specific training.
“We are excited to be the first MFP provider working with Alexa for Business,” said Vince Jannelli, Associate Vice President, Software Product Management, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “This feature is an important step in bringing Sharp’s vision for an open, smart workplace to life, providing greater value to our business customers.”
Sharp's strategic alliance with Amazon will allow Sharp MFP users and Aquous board users to do so much more with less time and effort.
