Among Evernote's 200 million users, 76% live outside of the United States, with a significant 35% residing in Asia. China represents roughly 10%, Japan 5%, and the rest of APAC 20%. Australia is home to nearly 3 million users, and is one of Evernote’s top 10 countries by revenue, along with others in the APAC region - Japan, China, Korea, and Taiwan. The company is building and currently expanding its user community by reaching out to active users through Evernote Certified Consultant Program and Evernote Community Leader Program globally.
Chris O’Neill, the CEO of Evernote emphasised the company’s core belief. “We believe in the infinite potential of any idea” he told media at a recent press conference in Japan on June 22. “It’s called “Evernote” for a reason. We are a champion of people's ideas from the moment they capture, preserve, nurture and share. Thoughts stay forever in Evernote."
In the same press conference, Chris also brought up three reasons why Evernote matters more today :
- Rise of the knowledge economy
- Growth in global smartphone usage
- Increasing information and cognitive overload in terms of volume and channel
Chris envisions Evernote's product to evolve from something which helps people “remember” to a service which assists people “think.” Evernote will continue to play well with others to offer integrated experiences. Over the past several months Evernote has added integrations with Microsoft Outlook, Google Drive, and Salesforce to deliver seamless productivity experiences across services and platforms.
