Solutions for Business on the Move

One of the biggest parts of business is leaving the office to go and meet with clients and investors to keep them updated with progress. This is followed by discussing plans going forward in a bid to extend contracts or even negotiate for increased sums of money for the service you’re providing. However, this does ultimately leave a negative in the form of down time at the office.

When you go away from your desk, for any length of time, nothing is being produced and time is money – as we all know in business. Deadlines can be missed, work is subsequently rushed and clients are left unhappy and may choose to take their business elsewhere, often through no fault of our own. Fortunately the ever-evolving tech world has presented a number of different methods to help us to reduce the damage caused by downtime ranging from working on Lenovo tablet laptops to utilizing ‘the cloud.’

laptopThere have been all kinds of problems caused by people trying to work on public transport, either on their commute to or from work or while travelling to visit clients. People have left laptops or paperwork on the train, at the platform of just dropped them without even realizing and the all-important information is lost. To counter the problems this can cause, backing up is essential. By saving your files to a different location, such as a USB flash drive or ‘the cloud’, you can still gain access to the documents or presentation from other devices.

So what is ‘the cloud’ exactly? It’s one of these new-fangled concepts that just confuses some people, while other people have incorporated into their business as part of the furniture.

Tablets have proven to be a Godsend for some businesses, allowing employees to work on the move without having to carry around laptops. They’re great to work on, providing you with a genuine keyboard and mouse, but tablets are much lighter and easier to carry. The ‘smartphone generation’ want to be able to access the latest information and services with their fingertips. Using a tablet enables them to go on social networks, access emails and browse the web quickly and easily to stay in touch with industry news and monitor their emails to stay in touch with those back at the office or answer questions from clients.
