NEW YORK and HOUSTON, April 17, 2019–Blutag, the leading cloud-based retail voice commerce platform that enables voice-based shopping, has teamed with EZneeds, an online big-box store delivering bulk items to your door, providing EZneeds customers with seamless voice shopping experiences. Blutag lets customers quickly and easily interact with their favorite retail brands on devices with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
“Teaming with Blutag aligns with the EZneeds vision of creating the easiest bulk shopping experience using voice commands,” said EZneeds Founder and CEO Nidal Ganim. “With the Blutag voice platform, instead of a time-consuming big-box store shopping trip, EZneeds’ customers can verbally order, reorder and replenish household items instantly.”
EZneeds generated its voice shopping experience for its customers using the Blutag platform, where there’s no coding required on the retailer’s end. For the first time, EZneeds customers can shop directly through EZneeds using just their voice. Blutag supports Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, which lets EZneeds customers ask their voice-activated personal assistant to order and reorder bulk items, request coupons and deals and receive personalized recommendations from EZneeds.
Propelled by voice speaker and voice assistant adoption, voice shopping is projected to climb to $40 billion by 2022 and Amazon-dominated household speaker penetration is expected to reach 55 percent by 2022, according to OC & C Strategy Consultants. Forty-five percent of millennials already use voice assistants when shopping, according to Coupon Follow research.
“Blutag is pleased to enable EZneeds’ early adoption of voice commerce to increase customer satisfaction and engagement by providing product search, orders and personalized recommendations from its store,” said Blutag Co-Founder and CEO Shilp Agarwal. “Voice commerce will completely change the way people shop because it adds a level of ease and personalization to their everyday tasks. Voice assistants are being built into televisions, cars, headphones and more. They delivery daily news briefings, weather reports, and now you can order groceries, household items, refill prescriptions and buy clothing using just voice.”
