Must Have Tools For Business Travel

October 17th, 2012

It’s hard to be as productive and on top of things when you are traveling for business. Keeping up on emails, replying to people as quickly as you normally would, and updating your team is tough when hotel Internet is irregular. Listed here are some tools that will help you when you are traveling for business.

GroupMe: If you need to contact many coworkers at once, potentially to update them about a meeting, the app GroupMe is perfect for you. You can create a list of contacts that 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: Many of us have a lot of devices we have to charge, and when you are traveling, you may not have enough 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 lets you charge all your devices at once, in one place.

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 will be 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 permits you to make conference calls.
