Quantify integrates Amazon Alexa

Quantify integrates Amazon Alexa”

On Amazon Echo products, Ally customers can already access everyday banking tasks, like monitoring account balances and recent transactions and deposits, transferring money, and checking current interest rates.

In time for the holiday season, Amazon also announced the new commands featured in the Echo devices like, "Alexa, add Whole Foods Market chocolate truffles to my Thanksgiving list".

Alexa: "Okay. How much do you make in a year?"

The integration with Alexa leverages the power of the Amazon cloud and provides Quantify with the tools to create more advanced features when paired with its core technology platform.

Alexa: "Okay a $1,000 bike will cost you 27.73 hours of work".

Ally Financial Inc.'s (ALLY) Ally Bank is rolling out a new service in which customers can engage in banking activities via voice commands. Available in the Ally Mobile app for iPhone, Ally Assist responds to customer inquiries and also has the ability to predict customer needs by analyzing accounts and transactions to present context-aware topics and messages to customers.

Other banks have introduced similar capabilities, such as "Ask UBS", which allows customers to ask their Alexa-enabled device questions such as, "How is the USA economy doing?"

"Ally is committed to integrating new technologies into our offerings to improve the overall customer experience at Ally Bank". For more information about Ally's Alexa Skill, visitwww.ally.com/alexa.

While many Whole Foods began stocking the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot immediately after its acquisition by Amazon in August, the grocery brand announced plans to expand the selection of products on Thursday.

Ally Bank was rated the best bank on the internet and the best bank for millennials in 2017 by Kiplinger, a personal finance and business forecasting resource.
