Tips to stay connected while travelling and keep your competitive edge

In such a competitive and mobile landscape, businesses can’t afford the delays and interruptions that were once a main detriment to business travel. Fortunately, there are a number of solutions that allow businesses to set up shop on the go.

Stay Online From Anywhere, at Any Time

Workforces of all shapes, sizes and sectors are becoming more mobile by the day and staying connected has never been easier. Thanks to wireless products like the new MiFi and Turbo Stick from Bell, Canadians are able to set up an office in hotel rooms and airport lounges anywhere they travel for business, with all the capabilities they would have at HQ. Such devices provide lightening fast connections and can be set up in no time. In fact, the MiFi hub comes equipped with a touchscreen that can be used for setup, and for managing the who’s connecting to the device. Up to 15 users can hop on to your portable hot spot all at once and enjoy lightning fast LTE speeds.

The Office Road Trip of the Future

Taking staff and colleagues on long road trips for sales calls, meetings or conferences no longer requires any down time for anyone besides the driver thanks to this new Turbo Stick. The sleek and compact device plugs into a car’s power adapter to provide instant and seamless connectivity on the road, to all devices in the car. Whether it’s to make some last minute touch-ups on the big presentation, send an important email or collaborate on a project with those back at the office through cloud applications like Office 365, the Turbo Stick lets customers turn any car into a rolling workstation.


LTE is the world’s fastest mobile technology

When you use a MiFi hub or Turbo stick, you access high speed connectivity on a LTE network. With carriers like Bell, you get access to the largest LTE network in Canada giving you fast speeds in more places where you do business.

In today’s business environment, work isn’t put on hold when someone leaves the building. Entrepreneurs and employees need to remain connected to the office at all times, whether they’re in the office, at home, on a road trip or in a hotel room. Fortunately, new technologies have never made it easier than ever to stay connected.
