It can be difficult to get important work done while on a trip for business. You have to cope with hotel Internet connections that can be maddeningly irregular. It’s tough to chat with your important clients when you are stuck in business meetings all day, and e-mails that you normally respond to immediately fall through the cracks while you’re flying from one airport to another. Luckily business travelers can rely on several apps and tech tools that make working while on business trips a bit easier. If you’re taking a long business trip, here are some tools that will make life easier for you. Your co-workers will thank you.

GroupMe: If you need to contact many coworkers at once, potentially to update them about a meeting, the app GroupMe is designed for you. You can create a list of contacts that you can then send a single text or email to all of them; this will save tons of time!

Belkin Mini Surge Protector DUAL USB Charger: With this powerful tool you can immediately charge all of your mobile devices at once. It includes three AC outlets and two USB outlets, as well as being a surge protector. You can see how this would prove useful!

Campfire: If you have some information to communicate with your team that requires more than a text, you can use the Campfire app. This app lets you set up chat rooms with as many people as you want. Everyone in the chat room is able to see what other people are writing, and in this way you can speak to your whole team. If you feel more at ease talking out loud, Campfire also allows you to make conference calls.
