Alexa and retail
Your shop assistant
The retail industry is integrating interactive technology in order to enhance the shopping experience for both customers and employees. This demand for innovation in the retail space called for the invention of Shopstar, an in-store digital assistant powered by Amazon’s Alexa. Using Amazon Echo speakers in retail stores, Shopstar responds to customers’ queries and requests for specific products and is able to contact store employees for further assistance.

It’s difficult to gauge the customer’s interest in interacting. Some people love to chat while some people don’t want our help, and it’s difficult to gauge that. Athens boutique employee
