Tact Sales Assistant Skill Unveiled as Alexa’s First Certified CRM Skill

With today’s announcement of Alexa for Business, Amazon unveiled a select group of companies who have created personalized experiences with select Alexa Skills. The Tact Sales Assistant Skill uses Alexa Voice Profiles, providing authentication and personalized experiences when Alexa recognizes the user’s voice.

More Ways to Unlock the New Tact Skill

The Tact Skill can be set up two different ways. Users can go to the new Alexa for Business App Store and go through the standard account linking flow. A newer deployment method announced today allows businesses to create private, pre-configured and fully customizable Skills set up to understand company-specific commands and conversations. For enterprises, this allows IT organizations to offer their employees a securely, managed, voice controlled way to access corporate information from systems like Salesforce, Zendesk, LinkedIn, Exchange and more.
