When traveling, you want to make sure that you have the right items with you. It helps ease anxiety knowing that you have comforts from home packed in your suitcase. When preparing for your trip, it’s important to make sure that you’re able to work while you’re away. This is especially true if you own a small business or travel for a living.

Being able to access tools that make your work easier is ideal. That’s what makes Microsoft Office one of the most popular software suites in existence. Rather than buy multiple programs individually, you gain access to everything you need with one single purchase.

Here are some of the reasons why Microsoft Office is the perfect travel tool:

  • It goes with you wherever you go.

    You can use it on multiple devices once you have the software installed on your PC or Mac laptop. You can access MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote from your phone or tablet so you’re able to edit while on the go. Making quick annotations or revisions is easy because you have multi-device options to choose from.
  • You can send documents to people while you’re away.

    If a client requests a quote or an invoice, you can send it to them via attachment. Open Outlook and attach the document with a note to the recipient. If you have access to WiFi, you’ll be able to send and receive emails with no issue.
  • Working on projects with others is no problem.

    If you have the time zone differences factored in, you can work with your team in real time on a project. If you have questions or need to speak to someone about the work that is being done, you can through the program you’re working on. For example, you can use Skype for Business to call a team member while in MS Word. This allows you to get the answers you need so that you’re able to move onto another part of the project.
  • Creating a slideshow of what you did while you were away is a possibility.

    Just drop the photos that you want to include into the presentation, add text, and music if you’d like and get ready to share with others what you did on your trip. This is a great way to engage customers and to invite others to see the world through your eyes. Choose the template that fits your theme and make your experience stand out in a way that only you can.

The examples listed above allow you to see how creative you can get while using Microsoft Office while traveling. There are many other things you can do such as create travel postcards featuring photos that you took, updating your business cards so you can continue to give them out to the contacts that you’ve met, and creating flyers for the event you’re speaking at or promoting.

The Travel Tools Small Business Owners and Professionals Need

As you can see, Microsoft Office is the perfect travel tool. It allows you to get work done while you’re on the road. You can collaborate in real time on a project, send emails to clients, set up meetings, and draft an outline to accompany your PowerPoint presentation.

Whatever job needs to be done, you’ll be able to do it with ease. All you need is a laptop computer with your favorite version of Office on it. You’ll then be able to access all the programs, tools, and features that make up the software suite while you’re away from home.
