Evernote has released Evernote Business, a team-savvy version of the popular information repository. The Business version was announced in August, and is now available in the US, France, Germany, the UK, Canada and Japan, for $10 per user per month.
Evernote Business is basically a team-oriented Evernote, with sharable notebooks as well as private personal notebooks. The shared Business notebooks form a business library, which can serve as a corporate intranet.
Evernote has always been too note-centric for me, lacking the social dimension that other web tools offer. With the Business edition, Evernote is taking its first steps into the social business arena, and we’ll have to see how quickly they adopt the key metaphors of work media tools, like activity streams and user profiles. I am betting it will all happen pretty fast.
