Mercedes-Benz announced at the IFA 2016 held at Berlin, a new projected termed the “In Car Office” that will supposedly incorporate Microsoft Exchange information with the car’s infotainment system. At this new age you just can’t get away from work sometimes. So much so that car manufacturers are trying to integrate smart productivity features into their cars. It won’t be long until the In Car Office hits the roads, as Mercedes will go live with this feature soon as the first half of the next year. Drivers can expect Microsoft Exchange support that will make your work calendar, to-do list and contacts help that offers suggestions and also let you take calls.
In Car Office Feature
This partnership seeks to make corporate invasions a little more tolerable. The new feature will auto-populate the car’s navigation and driving directions for an upcoming meeting or let you make hands-free calls to get in touch with the client when you are on-the-go.
The new feature isn’t intended to turn your vehicle into a mobile work spot. Clearly with its limited offers it’s designed to help commuters accomplish work-related tasks when they are travelling. The In Car Office pretty much sounds like a thing that could probably lessen distraction on road trips that are taken during business hours.
However both these companies haven’t spilled the beans on full extent related to the In Car Office. You may not seem to be so fond of this integration if you are a person who can keep work related things under control when you are heading on the road. This is purely the one that suits high-end customers who don’t have the time to memorise their schedules aptly and such who require assistance with work when they are travelling.
Get heard. What do you think of this new In Car Office. Do you think it falls in line with Ford’s attempt of integrating smartness into the car infotainment system. Let us know through comments.
