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.
