Workers a third more productive due to company car technology, finds research

Skoda's poll of 600 company car drivers revealed the right equipment can save time (according to 42%), make navigation easier (37%) and ultimately save money (31%). The company says workers can complete around 33% more work than they would do without their vehicle’s tech.

When asked which kit they couldn’t ‘work without’, different drivers had their favourites. Around one in six (14%) chose smartphone connectivity systems, while a tenth of the survey respondents selected cruise control and sat-navs. These were also the items that – along with climate control – were cited as being used most often.

Henry Williams, head of fleet at Skoda UK, commented: “At Skoda, we know that in-car technology is hugely important to company car drivers and their employers, to help save time and money. We regularly investigate which gadgets are most effective in improving business productivity and safety to make sure our cars, particularly the SE Business range, are kitted out with the most up-to-date and desirable products.”
