Through its vendor membership in the Azione Unlimited buying group, Google Home will provide products, training, and support to the organization’s 190 dealers.
Initially, the hardware and sales Partnership division of Google Inc. will offer three products to Azione members: Google Home, Google Home Mini, and Google Home Max, all powered by the Google Assistant.
Delivering high-quality audio and voice-activated personal assistant services, the Google Home portfolio is well-suited for both custom integration and DIY projects, integrating with more than 1,500 smart home devices from over 225 brands. Users can access more than 1 million actions to help to organize households, tackle everyday tasks, and present entertainment in a whole new way. Features include searching via Google; Voice Match; playing music, including via Bluetooth; music streaming via Spotify, Pandora and other popular services; hands-free phone calls; and local business search.
Representatives from Google Home will attend the 2018 Azione Spring Conference, Philosophically Phocused, in Philadelphia, to be held April 23-25. They will introduce dealers to the new Google Home product line and program. Azione will also be featuring a speaker from Google’s Partnerships Development team at the conference, sharing thoughts on present and future trends in voice control, AI, and whole-home integration.
“Azione provides our vendor members access to established dealers whose thriving integration businesses provide exposure to affluent homeowners and early adopter technology enthusiasts,” said Azione Unlimited president Richard Glikes. “As our members embrace the latest voice control technologies, we are thrilled to have Google Home there with tools, resources, and profitable solutions to help dealers usher in the future of smart home interaction.”
