Tech Travel Tips

Loading...

There's nothing worse than feeling stranded when traveling and there's one problem or another preventing you from connecting up remotely and doing the things you need to do. 

Here are some tips to help you with your technology when you're traveling:

  • Create a Travel Kit

Keep your various travel computer accessories - such as USB flash drive and hub, cable lock, extra phone battery, power strip, VoIP (Voice Over Internet protocol) headset, and webcam - in one place or kit.  When you're ready to hit the road, grab the kit and you're good to go.

  • Practice Logging in, and on

Don't try logging on to the corporate server or logging in to your remote accounts for the first time once you're on the road. Practice remote data access from the stress-free environment of your home.

  • Have IT on Standby

Information Technology people are your lifeline if you run into connection issues on the road.  Keep your IT Help Desk and support names and numbers handy.

  • Work Smart

Stay in hotels that provide fax, copy and print servies, as well as free internet and an in-room work space.

  • Keep a Neat Desk

Straighten up things at the office before leaving on an extended trip.  An organized desk will help co-workers find files or documents that you -- or they -- might need while you're away.

  • Schedule Time to Stay in Touch

Chasing down your staff or keeping in touch with family members can be challenging if everyone's on different schedules or time zones.  Before departing, setup call-in times.  Alternatively, start or end the day with e-mail updates.
