Now, where were we? ah, yes...
They say the only constant is change… And as we all know, the rate of change in modern times is incredible!
Sometimes it’s not until we stop and look around do we realise how much our daily lives have changed! I’m sure you have heard these recent quotes…
· Facebook, the world’s most popular media owner, creates no content
· Uber, the world’s largest taxi company, owns no vehicles.
· Airbnb, the world’s largest accommodation provider, owns no real estate.
· Alibaba, the most valuable retailer, has no inventory
The internet has revolutionised the way we work, and if you travel for business you will see how technology has developed.
In the old days, travelling for work used to mean losing touch for long periods of time with your colleagues without receiving updates on information held within with the office. However the internet, and cloud technologies, has enabled us to take the office with us wherever we go in what we now call ‘remote working'.
Modern business demands we stay in touch, we need to recognise this. We need to stay connected and productive whilst on the move… from emails and cloud business apps such as Google Docs for work, to Skype and Facebook for speaking to family and friends during downtime.
Smart Phones and Laptops are not the only tech that savvy travellers are bringing with them.
Have you thought about the following for your next business trip?
Secure Data Storage
The growing amount of data stored on external drives to cater for the need to store and transfer files and large amounts of data, means that storing this securely is no longer an option but is now mandatory.
Privileged, confidential or sensitive data must be protected at all times from intentional or accidental loss and the ClearCrypt range of devices is designed to make this cost effective, flexible and easy to achieve.
Business travellers need to be able to back-up important data quickly and have safe and secure access to important documents. The need to know it is secure is vital, especially in the event the device containing the data is lost or even stolen.
Adapt Wherever You Are
Worldwide USB adaptor
Business travellers need to adapt to new environments, both culturally and technologically. For the latter, one cheap and simple solution is the Go Travel Worldwide USB Adapter, which sidesteps the need to squeeze extra wires and plugs into overstuffed suitcases. The adaptor’s four sliding pins alternate between American, British, Australian and European plug configurations, and its two USB ports mean you can save time between meetings by charging multiple devices at the same time.
Keep Your Valuables Close
Nokia Treasure Tag
Losing your laptop bag, luggage, or other travel accessories could turn into a nightmare… especially if a hacker steals your stuff. This small tag, which lasts up to about six months on one standard watch battery, connects to any smartphone that uses Bluetooth 4.0. If you leave an item behind, the tag itself beeps. You can also search for misplaced items.
When travelling on business you need things to hand. An old-fashioned organiser isn’t the answer!
FAVI DLP Pico Smart Projector
While older portable projectors were either bulky or too dim for serious conference room use, this new FAVI Pico Smart Projector shines a bright 100-lumens image and doesn't require a smartphone. Instead, you can run Android apps like Dropbox or Chrome for your slideshow. The image size is up to about 10 feet and it can run on battery power for up to two hours!
Happy travels everyone!
