A company that won over with its transparency - Evernote

Evernote, the company that has more than 20-million users out of which one million of them pay about $5 every month to become the premium ones. The service is available in about 30 languages. Quite an achievement for a startup that was about to get bankrupted a few years back. Yes, you read right. Evernote was on the verge of bankruptcy and was about to be sold. To know more about the success story of this amazing startup let’s first get acquainted with what exactly is Evernote.

EvernoteThe purpose of this startup is to take down people’s notes and make it available across many different platforms. That means you can access the notes from windows, iOS, Android, etc. All your information is synced to the cloud. It can store text, audio, video, as well as pictures. Phil Libin, the CEO of Evernote, has never given up his positive attitude and hardworking spirit.

Evernote ran into a great deal of financial crisis in the year 2008 and all of its activities were halted for quite some time. The company was about to be shut down. However, like an angel, a faithful user of Evernote, mailed Libin to express his appreciation towards the company and said he will be ready to help financially in any way that he can for the progress of the company. Thus, a skype conversation was set up, conditions were discussed, agreement was signed and Evernote was saved from its doom by a fan.

Evernote has a strange Smile Graph to depict the usage of the service. In the initial months the user uses the service at a high rate. As time goes by the usage decreases. However after few months the same user gets more habituated and uses the graph at an equal high rate.

Libin believes in being transparent and open to his customers, employees, the press as well as the board members. His reason behind this is he doesn’t want to keep any secrets from anyone because at the end all the details come to the forefront and he doesn’t believe in depriving anyone of the truth. For the very same reason the ardent Evernote fan could help out the company when it was needed.

The company has a distant goal to reach. It wishes to become the second human brain where people can store all the important information related to their life. This amazing company with its wonderful policies will surely do well ahead.

Markup – Introducing the era of paperless grading for teachers

Markup – Introducing the era of paperless grading for teachers

We are living in an age where technology has in the real sense taken over mankind. Large companies and other educational institutions are aiming for a paperless world involving lesser or no use of paper at all. Books that have been said to attract a number of readers is also losing its reliability and novelty with the emergence of e-books that have entirely bewitched the hard covered books. A paperless world will definitely mark a new beginning in the lives of humans making work easier, swift and on the click of the fingers.

However, inspite of the hype around a paperless world, teachers are still unable to derive maximum benefit with the dawn of diverse technologies. Correcting thousands of assignments week after week becomes hectic and robs them of their time. With the help of Markup, the teachers can now grade their assignments using an ipad. Gone are the days when the teachers spent their time grading and correcting papers which ultimately hampered the teaching-learning process to some extent. Markup will enable them to transfer all their work on the ipad. Time to keep away those pen and papers!

The teachers (Users) are given a unique email address and any document sent to it will be directly synced to their Markup. The students will then have to send in their assignments to the given email address. You can also use the ‘Open In App’ functionality if you have documents in other apps like Dropbox, Google Drive, Mail Safari and the like. The files that Markup supports are PDF, Microsoft Word docs and excel spreadsheets.

This project was started by San Kim with a mission to achieve a paperless world making life simpler, faster and hassle free. Markup will definitely prove to be fruitful for teachers in the long run considering its easy accessibility and effectiveness to handle tedious tasks.
