5 Mobile Apps for a Stress Free Business Trip
Your phone or tablet can be the most powerful tool in your arsenal for efficiency and problem solving on the road, if you know how to make the best use out of it. Check out these five amazing business travel mobile apps that will make you feel like a superhero:
Best for: Finding places to stay, eat, and play on the go
Join a tribe based on your interests and needs and get tailored recommendations for things to do, restaurants, and hotels on your journey. The app will even show you local events and give you updates based on the weather, time of day, and exact location in the city you are.
Best for: Getting around with ease
Skip the taxi line and book your Uber ride when you arrive at most airports for a cheaper and more efficient trip. If transit makes more sense based on where you are, download the Transit app to get real time schedules for available modes of public transportation in your area, and best suggestions for how to get from a to b.
Best for: Expense Reporting
Capture and submit your expenses right from your phone as you go. You can snap pictures of your receipts and the app will automatically create and itemise an expense claim for you, eliminating manual effort and reducing stress for lost paperwork.
Best for: Workflow management
Upload, collaborate, and work in real time on documents within the mobile Google Drive app for the most efficient way to get things done on the go. Google Drive can also allow you to do everything from file sharing, to form creation, scanning paper documents, mind mapping, and much more.
Best for: Networking
Swipe for a minute each day and make new connections wherever you are based on your interests, skills, and career goals. Shapr is like Tinder for business – you can swipe left or right to make connections, chat, and set up a time to meet wherever you are.
