When you are travelling for business and need to remain connected, there are a few tools that you can keep on hand to ensure that your mobile productivity remains intact. Here are the tools you can take with you to stay online wherever you may be.
- Wireless Keyboard: This can help when you need to type your content, orders, or product descriptions up in a hurry. A wireless, mobile keyboard that is full size is easier and faster to use that a tablet, or smartphone.
- Portable Monitor: A portable monitor is especially helpful for the business traveler who needs to make a presentation or if you have to complete data entry. A larger screen helps in both those cases.
- Mobile Hotspot: WiFi always seems to not be available or is slow just when you need it. When you bring your own portable mobile hotspot with you, you will never be without your fast connection just when you need it.
- Portable Hard Drive: Backing up your files is always very important. Sure, you can use one of many cloud based backup options, but a portable hard drive can also carry important information with you that either doesn’t fit on your tablet or smartphone or if you need the data available offline.
- Privacy Filter: This is a screen that fits over your monitor so that the data on it cannot be seen from the side. Whether you just want to keep nosy coffee house mates away from your computer or if you need to keep your screen private, this works wonders. It also works as a great safeguard for your screen against dirt, spills, dust, and scratches.
- Noise Canceling Headphones; These are a traveller’s best friend. These are great for planes, trains, and pretty much any place you go where you want privacy.
- External Battery Pack: An external battery pack for your laptop is always a life saver when you are on the move or travelling.
- Portable Smartphone or Tablet Chargers: There is nothing worse than your means of communication going down. We know that batteries don’t typically last all day so be sure to have an extra portable one with you at all times and ready to go when you need it.
