Why Evernote is a must have for your Business


“Remember everything”. With a tag line like this who wouldn’t need Evernote?  Evernote is an extension of your brain and can be a powerful tool for your business. I have been using Evernote since 2012 and I have come to rely on it heavily to help me organise my work and my life. I have written about Evernote many times but usually for personal benefit, but for many years Evernote has been one of the most valuable parts of my productivity toolkit for my business.

Evernote for Teams

You may be already familiar with Evernote, maybe you have tried it out and left it aside or you may rely on it like you rely on your mother. What you probably didn’t know is that Evernote Business is a powerful aid to your teams productivity and performance.

Team Collaboration

Evernote business allows you to collect and store information for any projects your team may be working on. One of the features, note sharing can be very valuable when collaborating on a project. It reduces the amount of time you have to spend on email sending documents back and forth, with Evernote you can  share a notebook and allow your colleagues to edit it.
Another very useful feature of Evernote is Web Clipper enabling you to attach a web document, image or webpage to a note to view at a later stage. This comes in very handy when you are doing research for a project or assignment. You can capture the information, tag it and put it in the right notebook so that you can access it later when you are ready to work.
Notebooks can also be shared with clients or consultants who can either read or contribute to the folder.


Effective Meetings

Evernote can also be used to make meetings more efficient by centralising meeting notes, allowing all your team access the notes and use them in real time. Audio notes are very convenient for meetings. I have often recorded meetings to listen back to at a later time. The audio notes could also be sent to someone who couldn’t make the meeting, so they don’t have to miss out on experiencing it for themselves. Or simply use them to remind yourself of something or if you are too lazy to write. Often people capture whiteboards or flipchart outputs from a meeting and easily add them to the meeting notes or notebook.

Presentation mode is also a useful feature for meetings. If you have all the information you need for a meeting inside a note, you can present it directly from Evernote. This will save you having to transfer the information to presentation software and enable you to open linked documents or update the information on the fly, visible to all at the meeting.


Total Productivity

Having an Evernote personal account is becoming akin to owning a phone. The piece of mind it gives to have a place to store everything, to have all of your personal information stored in the one place and accessible at all times. Extending these benefits to your company will be the best move you can make. And as Evernote can be integrated with a number of software programmes that you may already have in your organisation it will help you to do more and streamline more processes. Software such as Zendesk, Salesforce and Outlook all allow for Evernote integration doubling  the power of both systems and leaving you organised, in control and stress free.
