Smart Phone – The Business Travel Companion

Traveling smart has a whole new meaning in today’s smart phone invested world.

The smart phone absolutely can help one travel smarter and more effectively. It simply puts the world wide web at your fingertips and thus enables you to stay connected. Many people feel the smart phone can hinder your actual work life by being a distraction. However, more and more companies are embracing the technology by making the smart phone a part of the employee’s business tool kit. The smart phone of today can truly enable the business traveler to be more efficient and connected while away from the office.

It is pretty well known that smart phone app stores are filled with apps that can entertain, document, educate, communicate and help you be organized in your daily life. The great news for business travelers is that there are a lot of apps that can assist you in being a smart traveler. Some of these apps can track your flight, inform you of Visa requirements for all your travel destinations, keep you informed on local weather, provide intelligent street maps of your location, convert currency and even translate the local language. Of course, you will also find government apps that let you know about important travel information and requirements. We highly recommend you check out the Resources page on the World Travel Business Elite website for links to great websites and apps that will enhance your travel ventures.

The smart phone has so much more to offer besides all the third party apps available inside the phone’s app store. The various smart phone technologies on the market today actually come with a lot of power built into via their hardware and software. You will find common features such as WiFi, Bluetooth and high-quality cameras. All of these features enable the business traveler to stay connected to their office or home with ease. One of the biggest contributors is the camera on the smart phone. It allows you to visually communicate during your travels via photography, blogging, email and even video conferencing. The camera definitely plays a key role on allowing one to communicate face-to-face via software such as Skype® or Facetime® technology when away at distant locations. Whether you’re having a Skype meeting with fellow employees who are back at the home office or having Facetime with your family while away on business travels. The smart phone helps you to stay connected, informed and most importantly travel safely.

Although the smart phone can be a great travel companion and put a lot of resources at your fingertips it lacks when it comes to the human quotient. Purely, it is a computer and it’s unable of giving you the quality personalized service a human being can provide.
