Two months after launch, Evernote is expanding its small business services to 26 more countries in Europe and beyond.
Evernote Business is now available throughout the European Union, Norway, and Iceland, and will land in Australia and New Zealand on Feb. 12.
More than 2,000 companies have already signed up for the service, following December’s initial rollout to France, Germany, Switzerland, the U.K., Canada, Japan, and the U.S. The business-based notepad app is expected to roll out to another 50 countries in the first half of 2013, including markets in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and Asia.
Already, 70 percent of Evernote users reside in countries outside of the U.S., where small and medium-sized business markets represent untapped opportunities for the company’s enterprise product.
“One of the biggest challenges facing fast-growth businesses like Evernote is how they can discover the knowledge of individuals and groups within their companies,” newly appointed Evernote Chief Operating Officer Ken Gullicksen (pictured) said in a statement. “Evernote Business addresses this by allowing every employee to collect their own knowledge, while also helping them to instantly discover what their coworkers know.”
Organizations can now tap into Evernote’s note making and organizing tools, including the option to file content to Business or Personal Notebooks. Business Notebooks are made public within a company, and can be published to the Business Library storage space. Meanwhile, Personal Notebooks remain private, and can be used for non-work content or sensitive inner-office memos.
For $10 per month, users get 2GB of new content in Personal Notebooks, while co-workers can share another 2GB in their Business Notebooks. Evernote Business is available via Evernote for Mac, iOS, Android, and Windows Desktop.
Gullicksen, meanwhile, will be responsible for investor relations, corporate development, sales, and global support, as well as leading Evernote Business. He was promoted from his position as vice president of corporate development at Evernote.
“As COO, Ken will be instrumental in continuing to foster strategic initiatives, building on the momentum we’re seeing with Evernote Business and developing efficient services to support our entire global operation,” Evernote chief Phil Libin said in a statement.
New markets added today include Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden.
