I’ve been covering Evernote a fair bit lately, as it is an integral part of my work system. Notes I send to my notebook in the Evernote cloud are available on any device I might be using at the time and I’ve even showed how to freely capture handwritten bits without inking them on a Tablet PC. Evernote recently formed a partnership with printer maker Lexmark which further extends the benefits of the Evernote method. Lexmark produces all-in-one printers that have a new option on the control panel — Scan to Evernote.
The new option will allow printer owners to scan any paper document directly to their Evernote notebook in the sky. Scanned documents will be instantly available for reference from any device the user may own. Since the new capability is integrated directly into the printer, no computer interaction is required. Simply place the document in the scanner tray, hit the icon on the control panel and that’s it.
The new Evernote integration is available for Lexmark Interact, Prestige and Platinum Web-connected touch screen printers. Owners of these printers can download the Evernote integration at the Lexmark web site at no charge.
