Enable the Fantastic Services skill with just a few simple commands!
Now, for the first time ever, you can take care of your home cleaning with a little help from Alexa. That’s right, we put two and two together and Fantastic Services has made it possible for you to use your Amazon Echo device in another fun and helpful way. You can easily book our One-off Cleaning Service for your place with just a few voice commands.
Here is how it works
Say something along the lines of…
“Alexa, launch Fantastic Services!” or
“Alexa, ask Fantastic Services to book a cleaner for tomorrow at noon!” or
“Alexa, ask Fantastic Services to book cleaning!”
Watch our video below and see the step-by-step process explained:
Basically, Alexa will recognise “Fantastic Services” as a trigger word and this will commence the booking process. Then you’ll have to specify a few things to finalise your order. For example, Alexa will ask you…
- “On what date should the cleaner come?”
- “What would be the best time for arrival?”
- “How many hours should the cleaner work?” (keep in mind the minimum call-out is 3 hours)
- “Would you like the cleaner to bring detergents?”
- “Would you like the cleaner to bring equipment?” (like a hover, a mop, or a bucket)
If the date and time for your booking are available, Alexa will give you a price quote and ask for a final confirmation. And if the slot is not available, Alexa will offer you the closest free time slot.
The future is now and you are living in it
Voice as a feature in technology is becoming more and more prevalent. Sure, talking to a device was kind of weird in the beginning. The very concept felt almost abstract, that sort of thing belonged to sci-fi movies and TV shows, along with flying cars and friendly aliens.
So, have we finally caught up to that future? Well, not exactly. But it seems that we’re getting there one way or another. And in the meantime, we asked ourselves: how do we make our services more accessible? Well, now you can be in the middle of preparing dinner or doing your daily stretch routine on a yoga mat, and arrange your home cleaning with no interruption whatsoever.
For the time being, this is the only service you can book from Fantastic Services with the help of Alexa. However, we are working to bring you more and more conveniences when it comes to taking care of your home and workplace.
Keep in mind that you can always share your ideas and suggestions with us. We’d love to hear from you!
