The Automated Smart Office

December 5, 2017


Last week a group from The Office People attended Pulse 2017 (Sharp's National Dealer Meeting) in Phoenix, Arizona. Even though the weather was dry, Sharp's release of new and innovative products was anything but that. 


Sharp's President and CEO, Doug Albregts, opened the two-day meeting by stating that Sharp and its parent company, Foxconn, are setting the pulse for business technology and solutions around the world. With Foxconn being responsible for making over 50% of the world's technology, Sharp has been given "a ticket to the party and a seat at the table".


What we brought home, will not disappoint. 



A Smart Office


Imagine waking up in a smart house and heading into a smart office, never missing a beat. Sharp has now partnered with Amazon Web Services to make the office smarter. A smart office would allow you 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." Click here to read our post about Alexa for Business.
