Eurofins test centre for Amazon Alexa products
March 18, 2020
Eurofins Digital Testing, a global player in end-to-end quality assurance (QA) and testing services, has announced that it will now provide certified, third-party testing services to help developers and manufacturers earn Amazon’s ‘Badge.
Alexa is Amazon’s cloud-based voice service available on more than 100 million devices from Amazon and third-party device manufacturers.
The Alexa Built-in programme helps device makers create products that are certified to bring Alexa experiences to new categories—from smart speakers, sound bars, thermostats, smartphones, home appliances, PCs, TVs, wearables, hearables, in-car accessories, head-unit integrations, light switches, mirrors, smoke detectors, set-top boxes, and more. Eurofins Digital Testing will test other companies’ Alexa-integrated devices, according to the Alexa Voice Service (AVS) self-test checklists, which are required in order to carry the Badge from Amazon.
“Alexa Built-in helps companies launch innovative Alexa-enabled products, and consumers have come to expect that these certified devices will deliver an excellent Alexa experience,” said Johan Craeybeckx, Business Line Director, Eurofins Digital Testing International. “We are extremely proud to have been chosen by Amazon to help developers and manufacturers test their devices to ensure they deliver the highest levels of quality at home, work or on-the-go.”
Eurofins Digital Testing will provide the device, acoustic and service testing required for certification and badging, which consists of four key areas: Functionality, User Experience (UX), Music Service Provider (MSP), and Far-Field (FF)/Hands-Free Acoustic. Eurofins Digital Testing will also provide implementation support for customised acoustic testing for choice of materials and mechanical design, white-box testing, code review, and more.
