In-car tech boosts work pro­duc­tiv­ity

The Wharf - - Life -

In-car gad­gets have made Bri­tish work­ers around a third more pro­duc­tive, sug­gests re­search con­ducted by Skoda.

Skoda asked 600 com­pany car driv­ers to name the sin­gle piece of equip­ment they “couldn’t work with­out”.

Smart­phone con­nec­tiv­ity sys­tems lead the way with 14% of the vote, while a 10th each went to cruise con­trol and sat­navs.

The lat­ter pair­ing were also among the most-used tech­nolo­gies in the sur­vey re­spon­dents’ cars.

Sav­ing time (42%) and mak­ing nav­i­ga­tion eas­ier (37%) were cited as the chief ben­e­fits for bosses, let­ting their staff get their jobs done quicker. Sav­ing money won 31% of the votes.

Skoda’s re­search shows an av­er­age 33% in­crease in com­pleted work­load for each per­son, at­trib­ut­able to the ad­van­tages of in-car tech.
