It doesn’t matter if your business is about traveling agency or quick cash loans online, as long as gadgets can help you to get things done quickly, you’re in for a faster transaction.
Gadgets don’t mind whether you work on the road, in the corner of your garage or from a tiny rented office, space is at a premium for start-ups. It offers you fast and innovative ways to make your business more productive.
Nokia Treasure Tag. It’s a nightmare when you lost your laptop bag, luggage, or other travel accessories. Especially if a hacker steals your stuff. This small tag can lasts up to about six months on one standard watch battery. It connects to any smartphone that uses Bluetooth 4.0. If you leave an item behind, the tag itself beeps. You can also search for misplaced items.
HP TopShot LaserJet Pro M275. This HP all-in-one printer allows you to print, scan, and copy documents to your PC. However, the kicker feature is a new technology called HP TopShot M275, which includes a document scanning arm. You place objects on the “stage” below the arm, and the M275 can snap six images in succession and combine them into one. The shots use three different angles and three lighting levels. The idea is that you don’t need to use a photo studio to take pictures of items you sell online. You can also scan receipts, business cards, or any object.
Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro. Not all laptops are equally created. This innovative model uses a durable hinge that can withstand abuse, converting from a full Windows 8 tablet to a laptop with one quick swing. You can even use the laptop in a tripod mode to watch movies on a plane or play touchscreen games. The Intel Core M processor is fast enough and made with the right architecture to support full Windows desktop apps like Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Word.
Google Nexus 9. At 8.9-inches, it is large enough to view business reports and enterprise apps from companies like Oracle and SAP. The back is made of a soft-grip material that might seem like a design perk but is intended to keep you from dropping it. The Nexus 9 boasts a 64-bit processor for speedy app performance and plenty of internal storage (32GB).
Knomo Knomad Mini. Available in a bright orange or more business-savvy brown or black. It can hold an iPad Mini or any 8-inch tablet plus your passport, ID cards, and spare cash. There are straps to hold a pen and a USB thumb drive. One bonus: There’s a unique code someone can look up online to find you if you leave it behind in your hotel room.
Griffin Technology Wired Keyboard. This Bluetooth keyboard work great with an iPad or your iPhone. This new wired keyboard connects into the Apple Lightning port and works without needing a battery or any setup process. There’s also a version that uses the older 30-pin connection on the iPhone 4.
Eaton 3S UPS. This affordable UPS (uninterruptable power supply) can run for about 20-45 minutes to keep your computer and office equipment running if there is a power failure. But the unique feature is called EcoControl that can detect when your computer goes to sleep, sits idle, or is shutdown. (In a sense, it “feels” the power being drawn for the main PC outlet.) When you plug other devices into one of the other nine outlets, the 3S can automatically cut their power to save on your bill. This gadget can cut energy costs for connected devices up to 30 percent.
Mophie Powerstation Plus. For those who get out of the office or go on business trips, there’s nothing more valuable than a backup battery charger. It charges up the iPhone 6 about eight times, which can mean the difference between being able to make calls and stay in touch with business contacts and being stuck with no way to stay productive. The charging cable folds into the device so it’s impossible to lose and reduces clutter.
So, what are you waiting? Get these gadgets to improve your business.
