Amazon expands Dash replenishment programme in UK

Amazon is expanding its Dash Replenishment programme in the UK, allowing automatic reordering of consumables from more companies than ever.

The company said that Bosch, Kyocera and Siemens have now incorporated Dash Replenishment into their connected devices whilst brands such as Beko, Candy, Hoover and Sharp are to integrate Dash Replenishment into new product categories such as TV remotes and coffee machines.

Dash Replenishment enables connected devices to measure supply consumption through a variety of sensors and then automatically reorder supplies needed – whether that’s detergent for a washing machine or ink for a printer.

“With Dash Replenishment we’re working to make the process of shopping for everyday consumables completely disappear, because we’ve all felt the frustration of running out of something we frequently use,” said Eric Saarnio, head of Amazon Devices EU. “Dash Replenishment allows manufacturers to add even more convenience to connected products, enabling a device to automatically reorder so a customer never has to worry about running out of what they need.”

Under the programme Dash Replenishment-enabled dishwashers from Bosch and Siemens will automatically reorder dishwasher detergent whilst Kyocera printers will reorder ink and toner. Toshiba TV remote controls will be the first brand in the UK to offer automatic re-ordering of batteries whilst Candy, Haier, Hoover and Sharp are developing washing machines to help automatically re-order laundry detergent and fabric softener. illy is developing espresso and coffee machines to easily reorder capsules.
