Advanced connectivity technology is now becoming standard equipment on many new cars. WiFi, remote vehicle controls (like rolling up your windows from another state), real time diagnostic apps, Alexa services, and much more are no longer expensive optional features. We’re way beyond Bluetooth speakers now.

“It’s a convenient, secure way to ensure your packages are delivered directly to you when you are out for the day, anticipating bad weather or wondering if your package is safe,” said Ford marketing lead Lorin Kennedy.
The “Key by Amazon In-Car Delivery” from Amazon will allow the global retailer to find your car and place your packages inside your car when you’re not around, all by using the Amazon app and the FordPass technology, standard on newer Ford vehicles.
Delivery convenience at its best, some would say.
The trend to offer customers more flexibility and convenience through the use of IoT technology reflects the increase of a more specialized IT workforce at many companies who provide connectivity products and services, both to manufacturers and to retailers. Soda machines with Apple Pay, mattresses with AI comfort controls, Alexa-based infotainment systems, and now cars with a connection to your delivery service all point toward the need for more IT professionals on the cutting edge of connectivity technology. It’s only going to get better in the years ahead.
