Volvo has been tagged as one of the leading car manufacturers in the world. With its sophisticated and top-of-the-line vehicles, there is no doubt that Volvo already earned its way to the top. But as the world enters a new year, it seems like Volvo is not yet done with its brand upgrade strategies. Sources told that Volvo is into partnering with Skype to make conference calls while driving possible.

Volvo Partners With Skype For Business, Upgrades In The Company Vehicles Revealed

According to Silicon Angle, cars that are connected to the internet have been a wide hit for the past year. With this, there is so much you could do with the cars that you are purchasing. News told that Volvo already collaborated with Skype for Business with its 90 Series cars. Speculations told that this would be the very first time that a car manufacturing company would be teaming up with Microsoft Corp. in producing excellent vehicles.

The team-up would eventually make cars that make conference calls convenient and a lot safer while driving on the road.

Volvo Vice President Consumer Connectivity Services Anders Tylman-Mikiewics gave out a statement regarding the upcoming upgrade:

"It's not the best way to start an important call in the car. On top of all that your attention is not where it should be - on the road. With the addition of Skype for Business all that goes away."

He also added that through the collaboration, upcoming meetings and participant details would be easier to view while driving. Tylman-Mikiewics even recognized the move to be a major step forward to a great connection between car manufacturing and communications.

However, others believed that this is just a start of a good working relationship between Skype for Business and Volvo. It is expected that there would be more surprising upgrades that would be done in the near future.
