Can you imagine having a conversation with your business intelligence solution while driving your car?

Robert Wright, a Senior Application Developer at Behler-Young, integrated Amazon Alexa with Phocas, a business intelligence solution for manufacturers, distributors and retailers. With critical data only a question away, you'll always have your finger on the pulse of the business even when you're on the road. Watch the video below to see how:

Through Amazon’s Alexa voice interface, the act of querying your computer system via verbal commands has now become part of our daily lives.

Wright developed a homegrown application and linked his Phocas account with Amazon’s Alexa app to successfully query Phocas verbally. “I am continuously trying to disrupt our industry, and the functionality of Amazon’s Alexa couldn’t be ignored. Why not combine the power of Phocas and the ease of Alexa?” Eliminating the need for a keyboard and taking mobile computing to the next level, Wright can quickly query Alexa on the go to hear updates on customer and supplier accounts in Phocas, keeping his finger on the pulse of the Behler-Young enterprise.
