Amazon.Com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) Ties Up With General Electric Company (GE) And Samsung For Dash Hardware
Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)’s Dash Replenishment Service (DRS) technology will be integrated into many hardware systems going forward. In the latest development, the company has added several new hardware partners to create DRS-compatible devices. DRS is an automatic ordering technology that is currently in beta testing with plans for wider rollout any time soon.
General Electric Company (NYSE:GE), Samsung Electronics and Oster are some of the device makers that will be able to create DRS-enabled products. With DRS, consumers are able to enjoy more convenient ordering of supplies. Currently, you have to press a button to automatically order through DRS, but the process of ordering through the system will be simpler in the future.
Automatic supplies ordering
For example, appliances integrated with DRS will be able to monitor supply usage and place orders if the amount of the supply has dropped to a certain level. Think about a washer automatically ordering detergent supply if it detects that the amount of available detergent is not sufficient.
Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is expected to shed more light about DRS at its re:Invent Amazon Web Services conference, which is coming up next week.
New DRS partners
At least 11 new hardware partners have been added to the DRS roster. The most notable names are GE, Oster and Samsung, but there are also others such as August and Gmate.
In the case of GE, the company will add DRS and Wi-Fi capabilities to its high-efficiency washers. With that implementation, the laundry will be able to automatically place a supply order for detergent when the available amount is running low.
As for Samsung, the electronics giant will make its printers compatible with Amazon’s DRS to enable automatic ordering of toner cartridges.
On its part, Oster will implement DRS in its smart pet feeders to enable automatic replenishing of food. August, on its part, will include a system that automates ordering of batteries for its smart locks through DRS.
Gmate will also make it possible to automatically order testing supplies for its smart blood glucose tester.
Benefit for Amazon
For Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), wider adoption of its DRS system will feed its e-commerce business as orders are placed and fulfilled through the platform.
