Anything that will help save them time (and money) is a win," she notes. "Our MeasureFill technology makes a tedious task like measuring water [more] efficient and less time-consuming, so consumers can get back to what matters most."

"We're constantly talking to showroom associ- ates, influencer partners and designers, monitoring what happens in the industry to identify gaps in our portfolio and ongoing market needs," Miller notes. "We have a robust team of industrial designers who are also consistently traveling, pulling inspiration from locations to inform collections." With the growth of the "connected home," voice-enabled assistance presents a huge oppor- tunity for the company, she says. Delta Faucet launched VoiceIQ Technology, which allows con- sumers to turn their faucet on and off, warm the AMERICAN STANDARD creates its Beale MeasureFill Touch Kitchen Faucet (above) to deliver an adjust- able set volume of water on demand faster than any conventional method.
