Today we are seeing an extremely competitive world where everyone is very up-to-date on the latest technological advancements. You look at your competitors and see that one of the reasons that you are lagging behind them is due to the fact that they have all the right gadgets. Whether you are the owner of an established business or a start-up, you do not need to spend a fortune on gadgets.
In fact, it is just about the ‘right’ gadgets and the gadgets that are right for you. Many men of business are required to travel – for them, compact and ultra-portable gadgets are a must. When you are just starting a business, you might not be able to afford to invest in very expensive gadgets – just a few which get the job done.
One gadget that businessmen should look at acquiring if they already haven’t, is a videoconferencing tool. For a one-on-one conversation, your laptop, tablet or smartphone will do, but when there are more than 2 people involved, you really could benefit from owning a video conferencing tool. A good choice would be the Logitech BCC950 ConferenceCam as it delivers great results and can zoom, pan and tilt – all while being compact. It is a product which has all the video conferencing features that you need.
Another tool that businessmen could use is a cloud-based service called DocuSign. Getting contracts and other documents printed not only wastes paper but also occupies space. With DocuSign, things become a lot easier and getting the signature of the concerned party also becomes a lot easier. Another tool that businessmen could use is Moo MiniCards. One of the drawbacks of traditional business cards is that it occupies valuable pocket space. These ‘MiniCards’ are compact enough for you to comfortably carry around.
If you are a world-travelling businessman, you really could use the Voyager 20 language translator – you will never again lose a deal because you don’t know how ‘thank you’ is said in Japanese. This gadget is incredibly compact and can translate over 20 languages including German, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Russian, Polish etc.
Another worry for the world-travelling business is how sockets differ around the world. For instance, a socket in Europe may be different from a socket in Japan. It is for this that the 150 Country Travel Adaptor comes in handy. The 150 Country Adaptor will help you survive sockets in around 150 countries.
It can be quite a pain taking down important notes during a meeting. Here is where the Digi Memo is handy. With Digi Memo, you will not lose any important point uttered during the course of the meeting. You will find that the notes organize themselves via Manager Software. Compatibility with Microsoft One Note is another feature.
There is no such thing as a gadget for everyone. Just because your competitors are carrying it doesn’t mean you have to as well. The right gadgets for you are dictated by your specific needs, your budget, your lifestyle, and of course, your preferences.
