UPDATE; July 27, 2018
The Teamstuff Alexa Skill is now available in Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada. Click here to get it now.
Teamstuff, the Sport Management Tool that assists coaches, managers, players and parents, is about to get better! The Teamstuff Alexa skill will enhance your sporting experience, making it ‘Less Work, More Play’.
Alexa is Amazon’s virtual assistant, integrated into devices such as the Amazon Echo. Alexa enables you to manage your daily life using your voice, providing a simpler and richer experience than if you were to use traditional apps or websites.
Interaction with Alexa feels much more natural than what you might be used to with websites and mobile apps. Traditionally, you’d need to stop what you’re doing, unlock your phone, open the app, navigate to the section you’re currently interested in, read some text off your screen and maybe press a few buttons.
Well, things are about to get a whole lot easier! With Alexa, all you need to do is speak. Alexa will do all the work for you and quickly respond with all the information you want and need – all this and you haven’t even had to stop whatever you were doing.
Start the skill by saying: “Alexa, open Teamstuff“, and then;
If you’re a parent or player…
Parent/Player: “What’s on for the weekend?”
Alexa: “Harriet has a game on Saturday at Marvel Stadium at 10 am. Harriet needs to arrive by 9:30.”
Player: “Do I have any messages?”
Alexa: “You have one unread message: Make sure you bring a spare change of clothes to the game, as we will be going out for dinner afterwards.”
If you’re a coach…
Coach: “Who can’t make it to the game on Sunday?”
Alexa: “James and Sam can’t attend the Mighty Giants game on Sunday.”
Coach: “Send a reminder to people who haven’t set their attendance for the game tomorrow.”
Alexa: “I’ve sent two reminders to James and Sam.”
There’s plenty more you can say to Alexa, so don’t be afraid to explore.
If you need help using the Teamstuff Skill at any time, simply say “Help“, and Alexa will be more than happy to advise.
Integration with Alexa (english speaking version) will be available for Teamstuff Pro members, enhancing the Pro experience even further. Installing the Teamstuff Alexa skill and linking an existing Teamstuff account is all you’ll need to do to get started.
Alexa will be joining the team soon, making it less work and more play – we can’t wait!
