other device makers developing smart products with automatic reordering

Virtual Dash Button Service now available to bring 1-Click reordering
to connected devices with screens
SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 10, 2018--
(NASDAQ: AMZN)—Amazon today welcomes several new device makers joining
the Dash Replenishment program to develop smart products to
automatically reorder consumables when supply runs low. Device makers
include HP, Kenmore, 3M’s Filtrete brand, Epson, and Blustream.
Additionally, devices from illy and Petcube are now available for
customers to purchase.
Dash Replenishment enables smart, connected devices to measure supply
consumption through a variety of inputs, including infrared, pressure
flow, weight, and other sensor arrays. The measurement then signals an
automatic reorder of supplies before they run out. For example, a Dash
Replenishment-enabled washing machine can automatically reorder
detergent or a smart printer can automatically reorder ink.
In addition, Amazon announced the Virtual Dash Button Service (VDBS), an
SDK that allows third parties to offer virtual Dash Buttons on their
screened devices. Virtual Dash Buttons are shortcuts that allow Prime
members to quickly find and reorder their favorite products from a
selection of millions of eligible products. Virtual Dash Buttons
launched on Amazon’s mobile application and website in January 2017,
expanded to Echo Show in October, and now can be available on third
party devices via VDBS
“We’ve all felt the frustration of realizing we’re out of something we
frequently use, so it’s no surprise customers are loving the convenience
of Dash Replenishment, which makes shopping for everyday consumables
completely disappear,” said Daniel Rausch, Vice President of Smart Home,
Amazon. “Dash Replenishment takes advantage of smart, connected
products, enabling a device to track supply usage so a customer never
runs out of what they need.”
