    Although business travel is on the rise again, companies are expecting employees to wring even greater efficiency and productivity from their business trips. Unfortunately, even the most seasoned road warrior can run into hurdles when traveling for business.


    Here are five common challenges facing business travelers and technology solutions that can help alleviate these issues and keep travelers productive.

    1. Airport Security

    Issue: Going through security is consistently one of the greatest pain points for business travelers. There always seem to be delays and adjustments in protocol, so it can be hard for frequent travelers to keep up with the changing tide.

    Tech Solution: My TSA is a real-time operating app, and it comes with features like security guidelines, wait-time estimates, and information on flight delays. With this app, you can view weather conditions at any airport as well as provide the TSA with feedback about your checkpoint experiences. The most raved-about feature is “Can I Bring,” which clarifies for users what they’re able to carry on the plane

    2. Flight Delays

    Background: Business travelers are accustomed to flight delays. They happen all the time. But how can you be productive while you wait?

    Tech Solution: App in the Air helps you fly more intelligently, in spite of issues like flight delays. With this app, you can find the best food and coffee in the airport. Use it to determine the best ways to spend your free time and to find free wireless internet connections. App in the Air also checks you into your flight and helps you keep friends and family updated by sharing flight status information.

    I downloaded My TSA. Hoping for accurate wait times. Unfortunately the wait times are posted by individuals and are days old for EWR and JFK. :( Not a lot of benefit.
