5 Ways to Improve Your Small Business

If you’re in a small business, you understand the many tasks required to keep the wheels turning. Whether you’re a business leader or supporting player, making small tweaks to your work can lead to big improvements in productivity and company success.

Here are some ways Evernote can help:

Give big (and small) ideas a home. Inspiration can strike anytime, anywhere. Collect all your ideas into one “Ideas” Notebook. You never know which one can lead to a successful product or a new way to meet customer needs. Share the notebook with your team so everyone can contribute.

Communicate without email. Reduce the deluge of email by collaborating with team members, vendors and customers in Shared Notebooks. Colleagues can easily mark up documents and images to reduce confusion and streamline conversations. You’ll see all updates via the Activity Stream.

Project in Evernote

Hold better meetings. Create meeting agendas in Evernote, complete with meeting goals and talking points, files up for discussion, checklists for action items, and more.

Stop losing receipts. Every business incurs expenses. So, keeping accurate records is critical. Snap photos of receipts with Evernote on your phone, and scan bills and invoices at your desk with the ScanSnap Evernote Edition Scanner. All your financial information will be centralized and searchable. Easily share the records with your bookkeeper or accountant.

Change your scenery. Sometimes just getting away from your everyday setting can bring new inspiration. Try working at a different desk, step outside to a coffee shop, or spend an afternoon at the park. With Offline Notebooks, you can take Evernote with you on your mobile device or tablet, so you can continue to work – even without Internet.

Get Evernote for your company.

    Hi Evernote

    I have recently been googling how Evernote handles syncing – as we try to use Evernote Shared Notebooks already.

    Is the business edition different from the Premium Evernote in how it handles sync conflicts? Or is there any features that you could make a document only work when you’re online – so that it would work a bit like how Google Docs do? Even though it is a drawback sometimes with Google Docs that you need to be online – it is also what makes it easy to collaborate on the same documents.

    Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

    @Johan, Evernote is not designed for simultaneous note editing, moreso for individual contributors to work in sequence on content within notes. What you can do is have each of your team members work on individual notes, then merge them all when your work is complete.
