Business travellers using more technologies to improve productivity


According to the CWT Connected Traveler Study, released at the end of August by Carlson Wagonlit Travel, business travellers are using more mobile devices to improve productivity on the road.

The CWT Connected Traveler Study was created by Carlson Wagonlit Travel and conducted through Artemis Strategy Group. Survey data was collected from more than 1,900 business travellers from the Americas, Europe and APAC region, who made at least four business trips within the previous 12 months.

The main purpose of the study was to understand how business travellers stayed connected to both work and home while on the road. It found that, on average, they carry four different mobile devices (mobile phone, tablet, laptop) on trips. The smartphone was cited as the one “travel tool they can’t live without”, with over 80 percent of travellers across the globe relying on their phone to conduct business.
