NEW YORK—From New York to Los Angeles to Chicago, airports are about to get a lot busier—and busier airports means more stressful travel. But if you tap into virtual office technologies, you can avoid some of that stress.

According to a Concur survey, the most stressful airport in the world is Chicago O’Hare, followed closely by Los Angeles International Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. But again, virtual office technologies can help you avoid these hectic travel hubs. When you work from a New York virtual office, you can communicate with your colleagues in Chicago and Los Angeles with a few mouse clicks--and in living color.

Think about it for a minute. With all the hassles associated with business travel, making it through the airport can cause your blood pressure to rise. There’s the long check-in lines, longer security checkpoints, and other annoyances, like confusing airport signage, poor service from airport staff and crowded bathrooms.

With travelers more reliant on technology than ever, it’s no surprise that poor Wi-Fi coverage and an insufficient amount of electrical outlets were also cited as common complaints for those looking to make the most of their time between flights in the survey.

So what is a weary road warrior to do? Tap into virtual office technologies like web conferencing and avoid as much travel as you can—especially during the holiday season. With virtual office technologies, you can hold face-to-face meetings, share presentations, and collaborate more efficiently.

Virtual office technologies, then, can make you more productive—and more cost-effective. Virtual office technologies save you time and money. And that’s true all year round and whether you travel or not.
