GPS/PPS is, perhaps, the most used reference source for stratum-1 clocks 
with NTP, so they are hardly "irrelevant", and for the OP who wants 
reliable time when away from the office, a portable GPS receiver may be a 
candidate solution.  For many folk, those paying out of their own pockets, 
the cost matters.

Having said that, I have already made my suggestion to the OP based on 
what I do myself - to use NTP and the pool servers.
