Today, Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced Logitech Solutions for Zoom Rooms with Alexa for Business, giving customers new ways to enhance their meeting room experience through contactless collaboration.

“It’s important we continue to evolve the meeting room experience to better support the needs of our changing workplace,” said Scott Wharton, general manager and vice president, Logitech Video Collaboration. “People are very comfortable with voice commands at home thanks to the adoption of Amazon Alexa—it’s now becoming a natural experience in the business world. We’re now able to be more efficient around utilization of meeting rooms, allowing businesses to deploy videoconferencing even faster by simply using voice to reserve rooms, schedule meetings, and start or end video calls.”
Logitech Solutions for Zoom Rooms support Alexa for Business with the Logitech Tap controller, Mini PC, and a Zoom Certified Logitech Rally or MeetUp conferencecam.
