Blue Moose’s MD travels a lot in order to network and learn new skills. So, the firm have revealed their 5 tips to stay on top of business when travelling.
The Managing Director of Blue Moose regularly travels for business and believes that travelling is an important part of being an entrepreneur. Just last year the MD travelled to South Africa, Ibiza, Bald Head Island, the US, and several UK cities. The business owner highlights that travelling can help an entrepreneur to learn new skills, conduct market research, network with fellow business professionals and encourage innovative thinking. However, the Managing Director points out that sometimes entrepreneurs can find it difficult to travel as they do not like to leave their business for long periods of time.
This has led Blue Moose to reveal their top 5 tools that entrepreneurs can use to stay on top of business when travelling:
It can be a nightmare for travelling entrepreneurs to arrive at their destination only to discover that the Wi-Fi doesn’t function properly. Blue Moose recommends planning ahead by investing in a hotspot. Many mobile phones can be used as a hotspot or entrepreneurs can purchase a stand-alone unit, highlights the firm. “When a hotspot is activated nearby, you can connect to its Wi-Fi from your laptop, putting you back in control of your business,” says Blue Moose.
Basecamp is a great project management tool which allows entrepreneurs to stay in the loop on important tasks and assignments, even whilst 30,000 feet in the air. Basecamp allows business owners to organise tasks, leave comments with details on each task and assign tasks to different employees. Blue Moose believes the best part of this is that every comment, change in due date or project description will be sent to the business owner as an email notification, meaning they never miss a thing.
This useful app allows entrepreneurs to locate private meeting spaces wherever they are, so there are quiet rooms available for those last minute conference calls. This means entrepreneurs can conduct business even when thousands of miles away from home, states Blue Moose.
Adobe E-Sign Services
Important business deals can never be put off until returning from a business trip so Blue Moose recommends this top Adobe app that allows professionals to send documents, collect signatures and electronically sign documents themselves.
If an entrepreneur suddenly realises they need a last minute, professional presentation when on the road this handy FedEx Office app allows them to print documents, files, or photos at a nearby FedEx location.
