Amazon Leading The Way In Creating An Entire Smart Shopping Ecosystem
While the IoT is bringing in security and convenience, large ecosystems are also created around the company’s connected devices. Though buying a smart speaker might seem like an easy decision, you also need to think about its accessibility and convenience when integrating it with your ecosystem. Selling smart speakers that only order from the retailers present in your ecosystem are an excellent way to control and gain a market.
With lots of offers and strategic advertising, Amazon has done its best to promote Alexa devices. Amazon-owned Ring, a Wi-Fi-connected video doorbell maker, is focusing on making homes secure all around.
Customers will be able to tell Alexa to order their groceries and then head off to work and return home to a stocked fridge — a completely integrated experience. While that may sound like a utopian tech future, a closer look reveals it’s one that limits consumers’ choices — even the groceries will have come from Amazon-owned Whole Foods.
Amazon Flex, Amazon’s crowdsourced delivery network is now available in over 50 cities. If you own an Amazon Key, you can expect all your deliveries to be in-home and fulfilled by Amazon drivers. Apple, Google, and other companies offer similar experiences and are working on creating better ones.
