SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) January 18, 2021
Housecall Pro – the leading software platform for home service professionals – and Amazon Alexa – the cloud-based voice service from Amazon – are enabling home service technicians and business owners to manage jobs on the go, using their voice. With the new Housecall Pro skill for Alexa and a compatible device, Housecall Pro home service technicians and business owners can now use Alexa to:
- Get the details of their next job, such as the time, customer name, and address.
- Send a hands-free text to let customers know they’re on the way
- Get directions to their next jobsite without taking their hands off the wheel.
“Voice activated functionality enables our customers to do work in their mobile offices on the road and out in the field when their hands are already occupied with their tools,” says Roland Ligtenberg, co-founder Housecall Pro. “The future is now.”
Housecall Pro is the first to bring the power of voice into the home service industry. Using new and cutting edge technologies to produce time saving features for home service professionals is core to their mission.
“We are excited to team up with Housecall Pro to help make their software platform experience more accessible through Alexa,” said Steve Bernstein, Director, Amazon Alexa. “The new Housecall Pro skill for Alexa is a great example of how voice technology can enhance business to consumer experiences and give more time back to business owners to focus on the customer.”
“Access to Housecall Pro functionality through your voice allows you to continue on your job or keep your eyes on the road, but still stay informed about your day without the distraction of pulling out your phone,” Said Connor Kuehnle, Senior Product Manager at Housecall Pro. “This will keep our pros safer on the roads and more efficient in the field.”
The Housecall Pro skill for Alexa is available in the Alexa Skills Store, exclusively for Housecall Pro paid-members with a compatible Alexa-enabled device, or the Alexa app. Housecall Pro’s development team is currently looking into additional functionality through the Housecall Pro skill for Alexa—stay tuned!
