Business Travel Tools

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

GroupMe: If you have to contact many coworkers at once, possibly to update them about a meeting, the app GroupMe is designed 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 tons of time!

Belkin Mini Surge Protector DUAL USB Charger: A lot of us have a lot of devices we need to charge, and when you’re traveling, you may not have sufficient plugs to charge them all at once. That is where this gadget comes in; it is a surge protector that includes three AC and two USB outlets. This allows you to charge all your devices at once, in one place.

Campfire: If you have some information to communicate with your team that needs 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 converse with your whole team. If you feel more at ease talking out loud, Campfire also lets you make conference calls.
