Apps to Help with Productivity While on the Road
Corporate travel, while necessary, can sometimes lead teams to lose some of their regular productivity. Whether it’s battling time zone differences, internet access in various cities, or lack of communication, companies are always looking for innovative ways to stay connected and remain productive. We know there is no shortage of business travel apps out there that can help, it’s just a matter of finding them.
After some research, we’ve developed a shortlist of a few favourites that will help boost productivity while on the road.
We all know and love Zoom thanks to the pandemic. You can download it to your smartphone and have meetings on the move. You can schedule, start, and join meetings through the app and even share your screen to conduct a presentation.
Voxer is a walkie-talkie style communication app. Meaning you can communicate securely, with real-time voice messaging, quickly and easily. Very cool. For me, this works well to get thoughts and messages across to colleagues/clients, especially in different time zones! Share text-style messages, documents, and photos.
All your passwords are securely in one place. LastPass is especially useful when on the road and needing a password quickly. Set it up on your computer before you travel, download the app, and voila everything is there ready to go.
This app allows you to scan documents and turn them into pdfs. Adobe Scan works well in the office but also on the road. Best of all it’s free and simple to use.
This handy transcription app for mobile is great for recording and transcribing meetings, dictating notes, recording creative thoughts, and adding things to your to-do list. Once recorded you can export the recording as a text file (or Word .doc on the paid version) that can be easily shared with colleagues and clients. It’s a real time-saver!
Super handy when travelling internationally. This translation app is free to download and offers over 100 different languages. Simply say what you want to translate into the app and voila, it converts it to the language of your choice. You can type in your message as well.
Last, but certainly not least, is the Worldgo App. Have all your trip details in one place, book travel on the fly, and access the latest COVID travel information. With the click of a button you’ll be connected to a Worldgo agent, available 24/7 to assist you. You can even upload your location in real time should you need to. This and so much more! Downloadable in the Apple Store and GooglePlay on March 1st, 2022.
We hope these business travel apps will help you be more productive when on the road. Safe travels!
