Dash Replenishment Service Stories July 29, 2015

It was back in the Spring that we first detailed Amazon’s Dash Replenishment Service, which seemed like a joke at the time given its April 1st timing. Turns out it wasn’t and today those little push button devices that automatically order more home goods are now available. If you have the over/under on the price at $3 for these, you might be surprised.  expand full story

Amazon’s new Dash Replenishment Service brings push button ordering to your washing machine

Today’s big news comes from Amazon, who announced a new venture that aims to make ordering household supplies easier… almost too easy. Its Dash Replenishment Service (DRS) offers an internet connected device that makes stocking up on supplies as easy as a push of a button. The little stick-on devices can go a number of places, with washing machines being a prime example. After a consumer would see a need for laundry soap, they would simply press the button and more would come their way.

Amazon is also offering integration with appliances, with early adoption planned from companies such as Whirlpool, Brita and Quirky. DRS is also available with Amazon’s Fresh service, the included wand allows users to scan bar codes of food that needs replenished, instantly adding it to the customer’s cart online.

There is no denying that this little project from Amazon, which is currently in beta, would close the gap between Amazon and its customers even more. Just make sure you keep it out of your children’s reach – that could be a problem.
