Business travel can be more productive when you have access to Android apps that allow you to get work done on the road.
1. Google Maps
At one time travelers regularly got lost while visiting unfamiliar cities. But since the advent of Google Maps, it’s been easy to find your way around any city, whether you’ve been there before or not. Most people are already familiar with how to use it, which simply involves entering your destination while online then getting directions.
Staying in good health should be one of your priorities since sometimes travel can create health complications. PlushCare is a tool that allows you to stay in touch with a doctor during your trip.
Staying in touch with friends, family, and colleagues back home can be done visually with Skype, which is owned by Microsoft. You’ll be able to avoid long distance calling fees since it provides free calls and messaging.
By signing up with Hotel Tonight you will have access to multiple last-minute hotel deals, taking the worry out of scheduling. The app scans your destination area up to seven days in advance.
Instead of renting a car or paying for long-term parking, you may find it more convenient to just get rides to and from airports and hotels.
Manage expenses easily with automation features. You’ll be able to document your receipts by photographing them with Concur.
Emails can pile up while you’re on a business trip, but Slack lets you communicate easier with your co-workers. With this app, you can send real-time messages, either to a group or individuals.
If you’re traveling by plane then FlightAware helps you track your flight. You simply enter the airline and flight number then click “track.” It connects with over 10,000 aircraft operators and service companies and pulls data from air traffic control systems around the world in real time.
You may want to plan out notes for your small business website while traveling. Evernote is convenient for documenting ideas in one or more places instead of writing them down on notes that you might misplace.
Some travelers like to use their own vehicle or rent one. Either way, you can use Parkwhiz to find and secure parking spacing in various cities. It allows you to look for the best rates so that you don’t have to waste time searching for garages and getting stuck with high fees.
