Since 1994, the company has grown from solely an online marketplace to a global technology and logistics titan. The company now provides services in music, television, publishing and much more through its various channels; Prime Video, Amazon Publishing, etc. The company has even created its own voice activated assistant, Alexa, and the smaller version of Alexa; Amazon Dot.

The company has a vast portfolio of products:

Amazon Web Services (AWS) was formed back in 2002 and since then has taken the technology industry by storm ever since then. This success has led Amazon to being named one of the Big Four technology companies alongside other high fledged companies such as Google and Apple.

The company is committed to providing the best customer service through its well trained team. It is also committed to evoking change and it has recently been announced that the company has pledged £500,000 to support theatre workers through the pandemic.
