Evernote launches productivity-pushing business service

Submitted by on December 6, 2012 – 9:59 amOne Comment

With over 45 million users (and a new boost of $85 million in financing), Evernote is a key player in the world of personal information and note-taking apps – and now it’s expanded into the business realm.

The simply titled Evernote Business offers an array of robust features which aim to make the working day easier, more productive and crucially, more enlightening. Users keep their personal notes (which are theirs regardless of their employment status), but also benefit from Business Notes and Business Libraries.

Business Notebooks (visually distinct from personal notebooks) comprise documents, projects, research – anything work related – and can be shared with co-workers, or published to the company’s Business Library. The Library acts as a single destination for Business Notebooks shared by employees, as well as a vital destination for company information posted by administrators. Such a source of accumulated knowledge can be a God-send for new employees – no more hunting out HR handbooks, or hanging around waiting for IT to respond to password queries.

But that’s all standard business enterprise stuff. The real news is Evernote Business’ search features. As well as just running a simple search across notes and libraries, the software actually pays attention to what you’re doing. So as you’re taking notes in a meeting, the program scans your words and phrases and brings up related reports, notes and documents from your colleagues and the library.

Of course, you can ignore this, but for many it will prove an extremely useful feature in creating ‘all-round’ knowledge and understanding, which, shared throughout the whole company, will make for an enriched working environment and confident employees.

Plus, Evernote Business users can create up to 2GB of new content each month – double the Evernote Premium allowance.

Priced at $10 per user per month, Evernote Business is supported by Mac, iOS, Android and Windows Desktop, and is available in seven countries: France, Germany, Switzerland, UK, Canada, Japan and USA.
