LogMeIn to be Featured in Ford Work Solutions In-Dash Computer

Now owners, managers and employees can rely on connectivity with their office infrastructure, no matter where their job happens to take them.

Owners of Ford F-150, Super Duty, E-Series and Transit Connect trucks and vans will be able to stay connected to their Internet-enabled office computers with LogMeIn remote access software for Ford Work Solutions.

LogMeIn for Ford Work Solutions enables F-150, Super Duty, E-Series and Transit Connect drivers to quickly and easily access a remote, Internet-enabled computer from their Ford truck. Through the Ford Work Solutions in-dash computer with Internet connectivity, business owners and employees can use LogMeIn to remotely access their office computers, as if the computer were in front of them. This includes all the business applications and files that are used in day-to-day operations.

Ford Work Solutions is a collection of factory-installed affordable technologies--including "smart" features that provide full Internet connectivity, tool/inventory tracking, remote computer access, fleet management telematics and security to support Ford customers with mobile office and business needs, even on the job site.

"LogMeIn has always been about providing customers with anytime, anywhere access to their digital lives, and the inclusion of LogMeIn as part of an innovative product like Ford Work Solutions is a natural fit," said Michael Simon, CEO of LogMeIn. "Now owners, managers and employees can rely on connectivity with their office infrastructure, no matter where their job happens to take them."

With full remote access to office computers, business owners and employees can view and update billing and customer information, generate invoices on the spot and view, edit and print job-related documents--either on the office printer or to an optional wireless printer in their Ford vehicle.

"Giving Ford truck owners access to their office computers frees them from the need to bring expensive, cumbersome laptops to the job site while giving them complete access to everything they need," said William Frykman, Ford Work Solutions, Product & Business Development Manager, Ford Motor Company. "LogMeIn for Ford Work Solutions ensures that Ford drivers are always in touch."
