Sheetz Offers Voice Activated Ordering Through Alexa

The Echo Plus looks premium and almost identical to the original

Amazon says that its Alexa for Business Starter Kit for United States customers includes three Amazon Echo devices and two Echo Dots for conference rooms, and two Echo Show devices for the desktop.

The Pennsylvania-based convenience store retailer created a new skill for Alexa, an interactive, voice-activated personal assistant developed by Amazon Inc., which allows customers to place an order just by voicing the command. So when you crave a Junkyard Dog, all you have to do is use your voice to order it.

But you'll still have to visit Sheetz to pick it up.

Alexa for Business can do the usual tasks like scheduling meetings, reordering office supplies, and starting conference calls.

First, log into your account on the Sheetz website (www.sheetz.com) and select your order and saved store for pickup. But it can also be programmed with custom skills designed specifically for a given workplace's needs using Alexa for Business APIs.
