Cedar Rapids, Iowa – October 3, 2018

 

Hibu Inc. recently announced that as of July 31st, business listing information of Hibu clients can now be found via voice search on Amazon Echo devices and Alexa-powered services. This adds to current voice search visibility for Hibu clients on Google Assistant and Apple’s Maps and Siri-enabled services.

Voice search is growing fast in the US. Over 50 million US consumers use voice search each month.  Most of those searches are done using Google (“OK, Google”) or Siri (“Hey, Siri”) on smartphones, but dedicated “smart speaker” devices like Amazon Echo (“Alexa”) and Google Home are an increasing part of the voice search landscape. It’s important for local businesses to be visible on them all. 

Nick Hopkins, Hibu’s AVP of Digital Product Management, said, “At Hibu, we’re constantly advancing our product line to deliver greater value. The addition of Alexa to our Hibu Listings product is the latest example, and we’re excited to bring it to both existing and new Hibu clients. Hibu is a one-stop-shop that enables local businesses to keep their online business information complete and accurate, and this now includes Alexa. With Hibu, clients can update their information across the web with one call.”
