As Americans become more mobile, business professionals have been relying heavily on their own mobile devices to accomplish business tasks. There are plenty of tools and apps available for individuals to help get more done, but not all of them have business customers in mind.
Now, popular productivity app Evernote has announced that it will launch a new business version of the app in December.
Evernote Business will allow business owners and administers to manage company data, create directories, share information with employees, and more. The business app will still include all of the features that are currently available for Evernote users, but with a business focus and a number of new features to help business owners and professionals get more done.
With nearly 40 million individuals currently using the Evernote app, many of whom already using it for business or work purposes, more business centric features seemed to be the next rational step.
The new version will cost businesses $10 per user per month. One of the features touted by Evernote is its simplified billing, so businesses can choose to pay for all of its employees together, either monthly or annually. And companies can add employees to their plan at any time.
Business users will also have access to support when needed, and all data stored on the app is still owned by the company or organization.
If you aren’t already familiar with Evernote, the app’s purpose is to help users remember, save, plan, research, and sync all of that information together, saving it in one app that can be accessed from multiple devices. The app is available on nearly all major browsers and smartphones.
For now, Evernote offers a variety of different products and apps and has launched a business site, Evernote Business, where business users can learn more and sign up for the new app when it is launched.
Annie: This is a natural step for Evernote to create a specific app for businesses. I listened to a podcast with Amber Mac and Sarah Lane there they mentioned that Moleskine has created a special notebook that could be used with your smarthphone, taking pictures of the content in the notebook and forward it to your Evernote account in great way.
I am looking forward to this release. I absolutely love the current app as it is right now. I couldn’t live without it!
