Evernote Launching a Business Program, Says CEO

In remarks made at the Next Web conference in Amsterdam, Evernote CEO Phil Libin indicated that the company will be launching a business program in the coming months, according to InfoWorld.

Evernote has proved to be a popular app, making it easy for users to quickly record ideas in a variety of formats, such as notes and photos, and access them later via the cloud or local storage.

With almost 30 million users, it’s safe to say that Evernote is already being used in the enterprise, but--like a lot of excellent apps and devices--it’s strictly the domain of individual end users. An official business program would bring with it administrative controls, such as the ability to create group accounts, tighten security, and maintain some control over transfer rights. That said, the data involved with remain on Evernote’s servers; the company won’t let businesses control that side of things.

InfoWorld also noted that Evernote is planning to roll out more versions of the software, with a renewed focus on sharing capabilities, which dovetails nicely with a business program, as well as a Chinese version--also a handy feature for businesses looking to network internationally.

I have evernote on my ipod and tablet, i never really use it. i have always had the preference of using google docs as it sinks with my computer and all of my devices, what are the specific advantages of this particular software? also why is it important to gain administrative tools?

I'm in the same boat: Installed it, played with it once or twice, and never really use it.

I have NixNote on my Linux laptop, which syncs to EverNote on the back end... but don't use that either. I just never saw a major improvement in organization or workflow from it.

Maybe I'm not using it right - or need to watch an instructional video.

"An official business program would bring with it administrative controls, such as the ability to create group accounts, tighten security, and maintain some control over transfer rights."

business people use administrative tools to up the security on their ideas.

With so many businesses buying iOS and Android devices it only makes sense that they start making apps targeted at businesses.

@AKnudson it is important for businesses to have administrative controls so that they can manage the program on all their devices and how it can be used.

I probably didn't use all of its features, but it really helped on my last trip abroad. I had all of my tickets and confirmation numbers in one place, lists and addresses of places I wanted to visit, how to get there, etc. It really helped organize my trip. The only thing I didn't like was how if I missed a sync, I wouldn't have access to my stuff until I had access to 3G or internet again, which can be tricky when traveling. It was really weird. Like I'd type a huge note, then a half hour later it'd be gone, only to come back until I found internet again. Maybe it was a problem on my end. But other than that I love the app.
