Yesterday i saw a posting on the Facebook Screen Printer Clothing Worldwide the question, “My Business is Growing and i have difficulties to catch up or i even forget about things”, what you are doing?
Yeah, that’s very often happen, we are today so extremely busy and do so many things at the same time, that we forget about things, quotes, documents, etc etc….not easy to keep track on all.
However, once i had a Skype Chat with Richard Greaves a expert in Screen Printing. As i been looking for a old Article called Plastisol Printer’s Guide to Using Waterbased Inks from Charles Leach. I did not find it anymore at the SGIA Database and not in the www.
Richard the source, showed me on his screen, what software he use to collect all is Screen Printing related Articles.I been very impressed, to see this large collection (30000 +!?). The trick is, not only having 30000 Articles about Screen printing, the thing is, you need to find it, when you need it. The software he use to do so (name not in hand), been around 200$. But Richard give me the hint to Evernote.
A quick look at it and as i like Free Tools, i downloaded it directly and since then, my knowledge is just growing 😉
What is EVERNOTE?
A VERY SIMPLE WAY to explanation.
It is just a big Box where you throw ALL your information what you like to keep inside.
The information, can be collected by your Phone, Computer, Tablet or Webclipper, in form as text, voice, image, scan, attachment, etc etc.
From any Computer, from your SmartPhone, WebBrowser, you make a Note and it synchronize with all devices directly. What it means – what ever you have in mind, note it down, in evernote and it is always there. Create your TODO List and be always up to date.
Just get the drive (think different, think Evernote), not to write anythings down on paper anymore, just Note it in Evernote. And where ever you are, you have the information with you! And where ever you are, you can collect information, what ever it is.
Evernotes, have a great Search Algorithm, that you find your notes again. Even information, what been stored a long time ago.
My self i started with the Free version, what is great, as you have every month 60MB of upload space. Every month you get 60MB more. For the basic it’s properly enough. But i started to upload 8 GIG (incl. Video’s) and this is why i end up with Premium Acount for 4,20USD a month, see table below, to understand the options.
Today i have over 10,000 Notes in Evernote, i do not only use it for the Business, i use it for every daily life thing. I’m Paperless now and save all important documents or bills or ideas or Bookmarks to Evernotes.
The only thing, i do not store in Evernotes, are my Bank details and Passwords.
As i have the Premium Account, you as a Company could use the Business Version, advantages are there:
Collaborate in a single workspace
Keep team projects and work together
Share and give feedback in one app
Write everything in Evernote
Collect images, files, and web research
Sync across computers and phones
Fast on-boarding and SSO
Central user administration
Enhanced security with TLS/SSL
This is even better, collect your information outside and send it directly to your company desk and let people work on it. Evernotes have so many options and if you are willing to get organized, i believe this is the Tool for you, to have control and everything at any time at your fingertip.
One more option what i find very useful (from Premium version on only), is that you can scan Business Cards and Evernotes reads this information and add it to your contact list and if wished, search for the person directly in linkedin. No more need to keep this Business cards anymore 😉
And Evernote scan images and can read text from there. Just make a picture if something, upload to Everynote and search for the text, what been in the image…wow!
And one big site-effect is, that Evernotes act as a backup for all your information! It stores the Info in the cloud and at the same time on your computer. So any computer crash you have, your information is not gone. I think this is a nice site-effect, a free backup system!
One more Tip:
Don’t overdue Tagging, use Tags but use them wise. You will understand later, that when your database is growing, a good Tagging system, brings you further. Evernotes have videos on Youtube
