Evernote Staff charboyd 272 Posted October 2, 2014 Evernote Staff Share Posted October 2, 2014 Office productivity is stuck in a world that’s almost as old as personal computing. When we started using these tools, it was so jarring that familiar metaphors—files, documents, and slides—were needed to ease us into the system. In the years since, the physical objects have faded from view, but their digital look-a-likes have stuck around. They may have moved from desktop computers to the cloud, but they haven’t really changed in the process. The trouble with these digital versions is that you get out exactly what you put in to them. Nothing more. Maybe less. Also, each of the tools are entirely disconnected from one another. Your brilliant document transforms into a set of dumbed-down, frustrating bullet points in a slide show. It’s not constructive. The way we work has changed. Our expectations are different. It’s time to move on. Evernote is the single workspace designed around four central actions that we perform each day: Write Collect Find Present From desk to meeting and from individual work to group projects, Evernote allows you to get it all done without switching apps or contexts. We believe that it is our role to not only provide the workspace, but to build an experience that improves the quality of your work and is invested in your success. We do this by combining these four needs with collaborative features and powerful augmented intelligence technologies that all enrich your work as you do it. It’s important to question everything about mainstream tools. Does line spacing make you a better writer? Does a slide template improve your idea? We realize that there will be those that disagree with our approach, but we can see a widespread thirst for something new. That’s why over 100 million people around the world have chosen Evernote, and why 70% use it for work. This is a movement. We are how modern work happens. Ultimately, why does this even matter? It matters because this is your life’s work. You are building something of value, but when you rely on the old metaphors you’re just filing it away—never to be seen or used again. We are leaving the age where technology is an ambivalent bystander and entering an era where the tools we use actually make us better. Welcome to your new workspace.
