GUEST BLOG: Top business apps when you're on the road

With the right technology you can be prepared for anything, even a tube strike the day you've got a major presentation, an interview and a networking event.

Here are some of the apps I rely on to stay productive - on the road and in the back of a London cab:

Cisco Mobile

With this app I can make 'local' calls from any office number in my virtual network and make calls over a WiFi network to save on roaming charges. This app only works as part of an enterprise buy, but anyone connected to Servcorp Online can benefit from it.  More about Cisco Mobile.


A great cloud computing app, Dropbox lets you access your files from anywhere; synchs from multiple computers so you'll always have the latest version of the file; and it lets you share files with others via a private URL. It's simple and beautiful and a great timesaver. More about Dropbox.
