Evernote Business has become a core tool for companies around the world looking to help team members work together more effectively and efficiently. Today we’re catching up with Feinheit, a Zurich-based design agency that relies on Evernote Business in every stage of their projects (If you can’t view English captions, select ‘CC’ in the player window).

Everyone contributes. At Feinheit, coming up with ideas is a key part of each team member’s job, and Evernote is the central location where those ideas are stored. Each person gets to contribute in the way that feels most natural for them. Evernote can handle virtually any type of content, including hand-drawn sketches in the Evernote Moleskine Notebook, ideas written on index cards, typed notes, and more. Everything gets sent into shared Business Notebooks so that everyone can access these ideas, in whatever format they were created, later.

“Teamwork with Evernote Business works very well. Everyone can contribute to making ideas better.” — Moritz Zumbühl, CEO and Co-Founder, Feinheit GmbH

Capture content. Ideas aren’t always self-generated. Sometimes, they start as inspiration from outside sources, to be expanded upon later. Whether it’s using the Evernote Web Clipper to capture examples of online design or snapping photos of inspiring street art, the Feinheit team sends all their inspirations to Evernote for everyone on the team to use.

Share meeting details. When discussing plans at meetings, ideas often fly fast and furious. The Feinheit team captures notes taken on whiteboards by snapping a photo using Evernote; snapshots automatically gets sent into shared Business Notebooks to ensure nothing is forgotten. Plus, handwriting that appears in photos of whiteboards is searchable in Evernote, making it easy for everyone at Feinheit to pull up key ideas by simply entering a few keywords in the search bar.

How do you use Evernote to share ideas on your team? We’d love to know.
