Project Objective: Deploy the latest version of the Apple 10in. tablet to employees of a medium sized Company in Milwaukee County. Start with the basics by finding out how to use iPhone, iPad, and Mac at work and how to get the items up and running on your network. You will need to know how to get connected to the network, VPN, and services,  with using applications like (Microsoft Exchange, setting up VPN on iOS and macOS). You will need to explore business apps browsing the apps on the App Store to learn how to deploy them on the user’s devices such as Business apps on iTunes or how to buy apps and books in volume just a few to mention. Once you have established all the ingredients you can plan your strategy. Think about your users by bringing in talent that will provide fresh thinking and set up space that helps with innovation.

Travel Arrangements for a Business Trip From Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA to Shanghai, China

Travel Arrangements for a Business Trip From Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA to Shanghai, China

Passport and Visa: Before even picking out things like a flight and a hotel you need to make sure you have a passport and a visa. It must be a passport that has a 6-month validity beyond the date of arrival. When applying for your passport make sure to do it at least 3-4 weeks to process if you do not already have a passport. A visa will typically cost US residents $140.00-$170.00 dollars. It is highly recommended you start planning the trip at least a month in advance due to the large volume of paperwork that you will need to enter China. Methods of Travel: Since you would be going to Shanghai there isn’t really anything other options but to fly. This is going to be an expensive flight. For a round trip I would expect it to cost around $1,000 or more dollars just for the flight alone. As far as traveling around the city goes your best options are going to be either using the metro station, taxi, or bus. The bus is going to be the cheapest way to get around but also the most confusing unless you can read Chinese and know the city decently well. Most bus drivers will probably not know much English. The metro is going to be your second cheapest option but will be more crowded and not all the stations have English signs. If you choose to take a taxi around the city, then make sure you have directions in Chinese to give to your driver. You should especially have directions that lead to your hotel that you plan...

Planning Business Trip from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Shanghai, China

Planning a trip can be a demanding and stressful task. Depending on where you are trying to go, budgets you have to work with and what you plan to do at your destination, you could be planning your trip years in advance. That is a lot of things to figure out and to keep track of over that sort of time. If it were a business trip, you’d likely have a short amount of time to figure it out and some things might even fit under the “you’ll figure it out when you get there” category. It doesn’t have to be that hard. With the use of gantt charts or even just researching prices and the location ahead of time. You can figure out some general pricing and locations to visit well in advance. With this specific instance we are looking at a business trip to Shanghai China from Milwaukee WI. We have various options of transportation but for the sake of ease and common business methods, we will likely be going with a simple airline as our method of transportation. Let us say that our business trip will be happening on December 2nd – December 6th. A round trip flight would run you $873 on the cheaper end. This will include one stop in Seattle and then straight to Shanghai and will take approximately 17 hours to complete assuming there were no delays. With this being an international trip, it will also require that you have a passport. Passports can be had for around $110 plus a $25 execution fee. Upon arriving you will need some form of...

When applying for an IT professional at some companies can require a bit of travel time as much as every other weekend, once a month to twice a month, and/or weekly depending on profitability.  Many companies provide a corporate expense account that will pay for your travel cost. When it comes to travel for the company you should take into account where you are to travel the cost of the airline/hotel and sometimes the car rental if you can get it all in one package. You then have to factor in the cost of your meals if you’re not going to eat at the hotel for each meal. Each hotel can charge for numbers of expense such as WIFI, meal after hours, transportation. Hotels are in the $150 to $250 per night range up to $500 depending on your preference. Let’s say you are asked to travel to Shanghai, China for a conference the conference will be for 5 days you will need to book a flight for a week costing $1501.39, you may need a rental car (economy or compact car, you can expect to pay $35 to $50 per day) and or transportation (Subway) to get from one event to another. Some hotels provide a limo service all which will need to be factored into your travel cost. You will need cost for breakfast ($17) daily, lunch, and dinner which could be extra per meal. You may want to go a nearby bar/grill that has entertainment ($144) including limo ride, drink, and food.  Also, keep in mind that when traveling internationally you will convert USD to their...
