Travelling for business isn’t always as glamorous as it seems. You’re on the go, balancing a hectic schedule, and fumbling your way around a different city. To make your life a little easier, we’ve asked our resident travel experts to compile a list of their top 10 travel apps.
Brian Roberts, our VP of Global Services and Geoff Ledingham, our Manager of Global Services run our Global Market Entry Program. The program provides Canadian Internet of Things (IoT) companies the opportunity to successfully enter new global markets through customized trips to countries around the globe. Collectively, they have taken 230 Canadian companies to 30 countries around the world, so we know we can trust their travel advice.
Since Brian and Geoff spend a good portion of the year on the go, here’s a list of their top travel apps to consider next time you’re heading out of town!
