5 Ways to Improve Business Productivity on the Road [INFOGRAPHIC]
Posted on June 19th 2014
Whether you’re just on your way to work or en route to a business meeting, commuting can take some important time out of your day - but thanks to technologies such as the cloud and mobile devices, we’re now able to take advantage of some great productivity tools to help keep our day going, wherever we are in the world. Below are 5 ways to improve your business productivity on the road:
1. Use the cloud for file management
You can access your files in the cloud from anywhere in the world as long as you have internet access. You’ll never have to worry about forgetting or misplacing files while on the road.
2. Make a daily to-do list
Using a calendar or creating a to-do list can help you plan and organize your day ahead of time, allowing you to focus on more important tasks or even enjoy the commute, worry-free.
3. Manage leads and contacts from mobile
Checking up on emails to make sure you don’t miss important opportunities can be a tough task while on the road - thankfully, there are a bunch of email and lead management apps to help.
4. Plan your commute route
The majority of today’s mobile navigation apps display real-time traffic and accidents on-screen, allowing you to find an alternate route that saves you both money and time.
5. Use a mobile hotspot for large tasks
If you’re sitting at the airport en route to a meeting and need to get some work done on your laptop, you’ll most likely need internet access. Many modern smartphones have internet hotspot or Wi-Fi broadcasting capabilities for on-the-go work, which uses your mobile data plan.
Take a look at the Infographic below, created by Pulp-PR, for more statistics and some great tools to help keep your day going while on the road.
