Innovation goes beyond a problem-focused approach to deliver optimum design and functionality for Symbio’s customers. The company is one of the first companies in the world to integrate Apple’s arPlay and Google’s Android Auto support as part of cars’ entertainment systems.
Symbio is a global digital services company that helps companies build innovative software products and transformative digital services that connect, engage and amaze their customers. As a small market player, we have to do things in a lean manner and focus on the essentials, Automotive Senior Manager Antti Laitinen explains.
Symbio is one of the first companies in the world to have focused on cars’ phone projections for several years. It is a clear competitive advantage for us, adds Kari J. Kauppi, Head of Automotive.
