We’re excited to announce that we have joined Amazon’s list of experienced Alexa Skill builders! For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Alexa platform, it’s a cloud-based voice service behind the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap and FireTV. Alexa Skills provide capabilities that let you interact with these devices in a more intuitive way using voice.
At TribalScale we’re always looking to experiment with innovative platforms and emerging technology, and Amazon Alexa is no exception. Our CEO, Sheetal Jaitly, sees potential for rapid adoption of voice assistant services like Alexa.
“Today, technology isn’t limited to the phones in our pocket; it is on our wrist, around our neck, it’s the devices all over our home and work, and Amazon Alexa brings a new level of interaction to these devices. The demand for voice interaction is growing rapidly and the number of clients requesting Alexa Skills is a testament to that. We provide strategic, scalable solutions for these clients by leveraging our deep mobile background and applying new user flows to this experience.” — Sheetal Jaitly
We’ve experienced quick success leveraging Alexa. In 2016, we won the first Amazon Alexa Hackathon in Canada building a skill for a connected fridge. From then on we’ve built a myriad of internal skills, and worked with the likes of The PGA Tour to develop enterprise level software for Alexa.
The journey with Alexa is just beginning, and we’re excited to continue designing, building and developing skills for our world-class clients.
