Today’s tech designers and software developers approach their work with your productivity needs in mind. They understand the face of business is shifting for nearly everyone. Companies are increasingly relying on a flexible workforce, which means that tech companies need to respond to new needs and challenges that include moderate budgets and productivity for solopreneurs and small- and medium-sized business owners. 

A Portable Printing Hub

As your freelance client roster or small business grows, you may occasionally work at the local library or at a coworking space where the facility offers printing services. With the xPrintServer from Lantronix, which is small enough to easily tuck into your professional messenger bag next your laptop, you can manage your printer needs. The xPrintServer allows you to wirelessly connect to over 4,000 printers. 

A High-Quality Smartphone

Out of all the amazing smartphone choices available, we landed on the Apple iPhone 6s. This 2015 Apple release offers you the perfect opportunity to ramp up your productivity without breaking the bank. Featuring a long battery life, you can work away from your desk if that helps keep you fresh and alert. It allows you to get to each out-of-office meeting without worrying about a crucial missed message. You will love the iPhone 6s’ crisp 12-megapixel iSight camera that also takes 4K video to seize any visual inspiration for your project in an instant, or to record the perfect video presentation. As always, it is tough to beat the security and functionality of Apple products. 

Noise Canceling Headphones

If you work in a chaotic environment, you may need a way to reduce the ambient noise. Check out the Plantronics Backbeat Pro 2 Noise Canceling Headphones, which are a fraction of the price of Bose but work perfectly to help you focus on the tasks at hand. Additional boons to these headphones include the slim design and Bluetooth capability. 

An Aftermarket Auto Productivity Device

If you are still driving an older-model car that isn’t wired for navigation, music and streaming apps, check out OverDryve from Rand McNally. Get out of the office for a while for meetings or a break without missing a beat. Attachable to your windshield via the included suction windshield mount, the 7″ display is easily visible, no matter where you place it. This handy device also reads your text messages to you, so you can keep your focus on the road. 

With these clever devices — and so many others on the market — you have a bounty of ways to boost your productivity to thrive with less stress.
