“Alexa, what is the value of pi?”
“Alexa, play Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake it off.’”
“Alexa, what is the weather for today?”
Hundreds of millions of Alexa-enabled devices have been sold in recent years. Considered Amazon’s most popular invention so far, Alexa can help with everything from answering questions to playing music and reading audiobooks to shopping online and ordering food.
Now you can add one more skill to Alexa’s arsenal: Shareholders can vote their proxy for the investments they hold. Through Mediant, Alexa can help them “voice” their annual proxy vote for each of the proposals on your annual meeting agenda, choosing one of the available voting options: For, Against, Abstain or Withhold.
When it comes to achieving a successful proxy outcome, integrating technologies to provide shareholders with multiple ways to vote their proxy not only encourages shareholder engagement, but strengthens an issuer’s digital transformation strategy. Mediant’s Alexa voting skill is another solution that meets shareholders where they are, providing a frictionless experience.
