Your advantages at a glance
In-Car Office allows you to work while on the road – without having to take your hands off the wheel. Thanks to the automation of lots of functions, the service saves you having to reach for your smartphone and thus makes working easier and safer: for example, you can automatically dial into a conference call or work through emails by voice command and use the read-aloud function while driving. This makes work before and after meetings simple and straightforward. You can confer with people during your journey, for example, to ensure you are optimally prepared when you appear at the meeting with your customer. In-Car Office transforms your Mercedes into a comfortable office.
