Connecting to our Customers

Design and purposeful innovation are informed by increased consumer engagement. The enhanced connectivity of our smart appliance suites simplifies and improves the consumer experience through the delivery of consumer insights and software upgrades. Consumers enjoy a connected experience with our appliances that continues well beyond the point of purchase.

Consumer needs and preferences vary by region. Therefore, we design globally and tailor our products regionally to deliver the best solutions for every consumer. For some regions, innovation means greater simplicity, while for others, intelligent, responsive and voice-activated appliances enrich the consumer journey.

Connecting Innovation and Design

We’re proud of the progress we’ve made in innovation and design, and our product leadership commitments were recognized in early 2019 through 16 iF awards and five CES awards.
