The recently announced partnership between HARMAN and Microsoft will streamline functionality between HARMAN connected car systems and Microsoft productivity services. More specifically, the collaboration will integrate key elements of Microsoft Office 365 productivity suite capabilities into HARMAN infotainment systems, and will offer a more immersive, personalized experience in the car. 

With access to Office 365 services through intelligent personal assistant software, drivers can complete tasks without compromising safety, including scheduling meetings, hearing and responding to emails, automatically joining conference calls and seamlessly managing events and tasks throughout the day. Tom Rivers, vice president, Marketing, Connected Car, shares details of the partnership.
