Note Wizard (Salesforce + Evernote)

Evernote is a very cool and useful application for taking notes, saving web clippings and archiving images that represent notes (sometimes its faster to just take a picture). One really great thing about it is that it does OCR on your content (event the text in your images!) and makes it all searchable.

What if you could save your Notes right into Salesforce? You can (only as Documents for now)! Coming soon is integration with standard and custom objects, which would let you do things like take a picture of a business card and import it into an Account/Contact combo. Maybe take a picture of a whitboard of notes and save it as an Activity.

Steve Buikhuizen has created the Note Wizard application. It’s definitely worth looking into. It’s an integration with Salesforce and Evernote all running on Amazon EC2 and S3!

 

Good work, Steve!
