Portable working solutions for businesses on the move

Many businesses now find that they have members of staff going out and about for various different reasons. Whether it's for meetings, trying to close a new deal for the business or going on location for a shoot, the need to be able to travel is becoming increasingly important for many people. With that, so is the need for being able to transport the essentials.

Who needs it?

Self-employed photographers and freelance staff who work in the fashion industry or similar are highly likely to have a lot of equipment that they also have to transport around with them. These people tend to have their own business and work alongside others so most of their equipment is provided by themselves, rather than lent to them by a company that they are working with.

With this in mind, their equipment needs to be as easy as possible to transport from place to place. Photographers working on location will need cameras, lighting, props and even editing equipment if they are on a tight deadline. Business staff who frequently travel for meetings or to close new deals will need their itinerary and are also likely to need a range of documents close at hand that they can use in the meeting to make their point.

Compact

The best way to make transporting equipment easier for people who are frequently on the move is to make it compact. Collapsible bikes are commonplace on rush hour trains for a reason; they make life much easier for people who need to get around cities quickly and don't want to be stuck in rush hour traffic. A similar theory works for photographers. Compact digital cameras, foldable stands and props that fit into a reasonable-sized case can make life a lot easier when trying to get from one side of a city to the other.

A mini hard drive is an essential piece of kit to ensure there is a place for all the information to be backed up. Photographers could potentially find themselves with thousands of images after a shoot. They will then need to sift through these to decide which ones are going to be suitable for submission and which ones will need editing. If these images are lost or corrupted, it could mean hours of work are wasted so a hard drive is necessary to back everything up. Having a small one that fits into a pocket or a handbag means the photographer can quickly make copies of everything and relax in the knowledge that even if the equipment is damaged or lost, they still have a copy of their work.

In other industries, people may need to have copies of important documents to ensure they can close down a deal or argue a case successfully. While it's useful to have the hard copies, these can easily get damaged or lost so having a digital version gives them that extra peace of mind. In the same way that you would have a spare key to your home in case you lose the original, so too should you have a space to copy all your documents.
