During your business trip you’ll be expected to accomplish any number of important tasks, and use your time on the road wisely. Without the comforts of your home and office even the most ordinary assignments can become challenging. The key to your success lies in being prepared, expecting the unexpected, and taking advantage of print and document management solutions to keep you up and running.

Here are some tips to get started:

  • Clear your devices. Even with password protection your sensitive data is at risk of a breach if your laptop, tablet, or smartphone should fall in to the wrong hands. Eliminate the risk while retaining full access to your data by storing it securely in the cloud using collaborative storage tools such as Office365, Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive and more.
  • Pack wisely. Make a list of all the devices you’ll need during your business trip and be sure to pack any accessories or peripherals to ensure their continued operation.
  • Feel the power. Obtain a full charge on all devices before leaving home, to avoid searching for a convenient outlet at the airport or arriving at your destination unprepared. Consider purchasing a portable charger for emergencies, but remember to keep it plugged in overnight to recharge.
  • Be consistent. Not every hotel has the right amenities for business travelers. Find a reliable chain that provides services such as free WiFi, business centers complete with printer, and ample workspace in the guest rooms, and book with them wherever possible. Make sure to enlist in their loyalty program to gain points and rewards.
  • Bide your time. Use the time you spend waiting for your flight to complete any number of tasks from reading, to preparing materials for your meetings.
  • Find a printer. A mobile print solution can help you find the nearest compatible printer so you can print when, and wherever, you need to.
  • Treat yourself. Get plenty of rest, eat well, stay hydrated, and take some time for yourself each day to remain healthy and productive.
