For modern business travelers, there are inconveniences in working while traveling. Luckily, there are plenty of productivity apps available that can help save time and ease your workflow. Here are some of our favorite ones:
One of the best things about the proliferation of mobile technology is that those who prefer to pack light can ditch their hard copies in favor of a digital app. Evernote is a top productivity app that effectively offers note-taking capabilities in a notebook that’s on the cloud. Organize your thoughts by pulling notes, documents, images, audio, and video files into one place, so you don’t miss a beat when you work while traveling.
When you work while traveling, it can be difficult to keep track of everything you need to accomplish—including both your professional and personal tasks. Any.do is designed to help you keep all of your to-do lists and reminders in one place. On top of that, it works as an in-depth day planner, too, syncing up with your Google Calendar, Microsoft Exchange, and iCal apps.
Accompany serves as a digital chief of staff, automatically serving up executive-level briefings about the individuals and organizations you have listed within your schedule. It also delivers a variety of data points for different companies and includes a curated newsfeed built around your business contacts to help you get the information you need fast.
To get all of your news in one place and save articles you wish to read later, a news aggregator like Feedly is a great choice. Pull news stories from a vast selection of sources, from industry insiders to your favorite magazines, and organize them by category. Premium users also can turn this top productivity app into a tool for teamwork with Evernote Business, Slack, OneNote 365 integrations, and more.
Google Translate is a stalwart of digital translation services and is especially useful when traveling to foreign locations. With its added offline capability, you don’t need Wi-Fi service to use it. Additionally, Google’s Word Lens technology allows you to snap a picture of a sign or document and then have it translated in your preferred language on the screen of your phone.
As electronic signatures become the standard practice, you’ll need a way to close deals even while you’re on the road. PandaDoc allows you to do just that, simplifying virtually all aspects of digital transaction management. Automate your workflows, sign documents, and more all on the fly.
