Must Have Tools For Business Travel

Business Technology | October 17, 2012

When you are traveling for business, it can be difficult to be as productive as you are in the office. The Internet connection at the hotel can be unreliable, and it can be challenging to stay on top of your email when you are in business meetings or traveling from one location to another. Luckily, there are several tech tools that can help tremendously while you are away from the office. We have outlined a few below.

GroupMe: If you need to contact many coworkers at once, possibly to update them about a meeting, the app GroupMe is perfect for you. You can create a list of contacts which you can then send a single text or email to all of them; this will save you tons of time!

Belkin Mini Surge Protector DUAL USB Charger: This isn’t an app, but it is an effective tool for travelers. With it, you can instantly charge all of your mobile devices. This is important; if your tablet or smartphone abruptly goes dead when you’re far from your hotel room, you might miss important calls or e-mail messages. The mini surge protector and charger includes three AC outlets and two powered USB outlets. This lets you simultaneously charge your laptop, tablet, cell phone, and other tech devices.

Campfire: If you have some information to communicate with your team that requires more than a text, you can use the Campfire app. This app lets you set up chat rooms with as many people as you want. Everyone in the chat room is able to see what other people are writing, and in this way you can speak to your whole team. If you feel more comfortable talking out loud, Campfire also allows you to make conference calls.
