Jimmy's Iced Coffee
Managing every aspect of a small business
After a year of traveling around Australia, quenching his thirst with delicious Aussie Iced Coffee, Jim Cregan returned to the UK to a lot less sunshine, even less surf and a sweet and sickly version of the iced coffee he’d enjoyed on the other side of the world. So, in true entrepreneurial style, Jim and his sister decided to make their own. Jim uses Evernote for every aspect of his business; everything from capturing important meeting notes to sharing exciting new ideas.
Whether it's doing research about the milk, coffee and iced coffee markets, distribution, supermarket trends, macro and micro stuff, Jim needs to be able to search, capture and then find information on the move or in the office. With Evernote, Jim saves Web Clips, images, links, and articles to all devices and tags them for simple searching.
Seamlessly discovering and sharing new information is important for a fast-growing small business. Employees have access to Shared Notebooks Employees and can discover important new company information posted by different teams and managers. Employees are also able to append their own discoveries and inspirations that may be helpful for the growth of the company, and share this knowledge with their team.
“I was one of the first to use Evernote Business in the UK and I love it. I can now communicate more effectively with my colleagues. It creates the ideal situation for small and fast-growth businesses because the whole company can seamlessly discover important company information, as well as storing their own knowledge about the business, which will never get lost.”
To save blog posts, as well as images and reviews about my business that Jim finds online, Jim simply clips them into his Evernote account. This is great for presentations to buyers, shareholders and investors, as Jim can pick out real life feedback from the web very easily. Learn more on Guide to Web Clipper.
Search to find any web clip containing your search terms inside the web clip article text or as a word inside an image, such as a logo or sign. Make it easy to find notes by tagging them with the client name, source, or relevant initiative.
Jim forwards a to-do task from his email to an Evernote folder with the tag #TODO at the end of the subject line to save his task-related emails in one spot.
“Evernote is great for saving important photos. Taking photos of stuff and saving them to Evernote is useful for me, especially when I'm on the road. I'll see a truck which distributes food and drink products and I'll photograph it then save it to Evernote under #distribution.”
