Evernote has long been a popular tool for business users, offering easy capture and management of notes, ideas, documents, and the like.
Now, Evernote is getting its business bona fides: The company just announced the aptly named Evernote Business.
Designed for small and mid-size companies, the new service promises the same free and Premium features as Evernote proper, plus a wealth of extra goodies catering to admins and owners. Among the highlights:
- Admin Console Administrators get access to an admin console that lets them manage their company data and who has access to it.
- Powerful Sharing Businesses can create a Notebook directory that contains content important to all employees. In addition, employees can publish notebooks to the business directory to collaborate with others in the organization.
- Smart Data Ownership Any content that is placed into designated Evernote Business notebooks within user accounts is managed and owned by the business. Anything created and stored in a user's personal Evernote account is controlled by the user.
- Easy On-boarding Once a company is set up for Evernote Business, employees can upgrade their Evernote accounts simply by entering their business email address.
Evernote Business customers will also get a "dedicated customer service manager" who's available by phone to help answer questions and provide general support.
The service will roll out this December, with flat-rate pricing of $10 per user per month. What do you think? Is that a worthwhile investment, or can your business get by on Evernote, er, Regular?
