Whiteboard sessions are meant to be collaborative, so it feels counterproductive when the team spends as much time feverishly recreating the whiteboard sketches in their notebooks as participating in discussions. Evernote is here to help. We caught up with Michael Galpert, founder of the amazing Aviary.com, (think Adobe Creative Suite, but entirely online and free) who explained how his company uses Evernote to keep ideas from disappearing.
What they do
The Aviary team uses Evernote as a key part of their whiteboard/brainstorming process. They sketch everything out, then take a snapshot with Evernote. As Michael points out, there was always a fear that important ideas might get erased and lost, but now with Evernote they have an easy way to capture it all forever.
As an added bonus, Evernote’s image recognition technology processes all of those snapshots and makes the handwritten text searchable, so it’s easy to find all of those great ideas.
