Is Evernote Business the right collaboration solution for your team in 2013?


“From saving thoughts and ideas to preserving experiences to working efficiently with others, Evernote’s collection of apps make it easy to stay organized and productive”.

Evernote Business

Evernote CEO Phil Libin talks about Evernote Business which was released earlier this month.

Evernote Business allows team members to quickly access shared notes and ideas via their computer, tablet, or mobile device and get things done.

Life at Evernote

“We’re a driven, committed bunch of people. Making the best product possible is what we live for. We’re building a 100 year company. A company that is fundamentally important to the lives of everyone on the planet. We’re just getting started, and we need your help”.

Evernote Smart Notebook

“The Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine is the first paper notebook specifically designed to bring your physical notes to your Evernote account. Notes from your Evernote Smart Notebook can even be tagged and organized in your Evernote account automatically, using the included Smart Stickers and Evernote’s new Page Camera feature for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch”.

Early in my career I used a Time/system personal organiser to improve my own productivity.

The Evernote suite of cloud, desktop and mobile applications enables an individual to maintain personal notes as well as organize and share information digitally to collaborate with other team members.

Teams will be reluctant to wait for Sharepoint 2013 mobile because most organisations have recently deployed Sharepoint 2010.

Evernote has c.41 million users and I am not suggesting that the product suite will replace corporate Sharepoint sites however I definitely see the benefit of seamlessly being able to collate and view data on the go via tablet and mobile.

With Evernote Skitch an individual can “Get your point across with fewer words using annotation, shapes and sketches, so that your ideas become reality faster”.

Evernote is another example where teams are choosing to bypass Enterprise IT to procure their own solutions in order to maintain and synchronize information assets in local knowledge repositories.

The CIO (Career is Over) will find it extremely difficult to govern knowledge created off the grid and control the leakage of key ideas and company information. 

Pricing for Evernote Business is $10 per User per month. How good is that?

We want Evernote to be all pervasive.
