Let’s face it, when you have a job that entails a large amount of travel, there are plenty of opportunities for things to go wrong. Your taxi might cancel at the last minute. Or, you might need to locate something ASAP. There are times where the hotel messes up your reservations. And, these are just a few of the many issues that plague business trips. We’ve created a list of apps to help ease those pains, and hopefully ensure that you have a great business trip!
