I know this is a website about GSA Contracts and Federal Marketing, but I figure if you are reading this you are a Government Contractor and always looking for productivity tools.
I have been using Evernote for a few years now, but only recently has the impact of how useful this application can be really struck.
What is Evernote?
Evernote makes it easy to remember things big and small from your everyday life using your computer, phone, tablet and the web. You can upload and index notes, web pages, photos, voice memos, pictures, etc. Also, with Evernote, all of your notes, web clips, files and images are made available on every device and computer you use.
Evernote and Government Contracting
In the complicated and overwhelming world of government contracting, Evernote can act as an extension of your brain. for example, you can upload an RFQ and create a note specifically for that project. Notes can be shared, so others can also collaborate with your RFQ note. Emails can also be uploaded into Evernote as well, so every shred of documentation can be held in one place.
After the proposal is submitted, it is common for months to go by before hearing back from the Contracting Officer with questions. When they do call, you will have access to the note on your phone, computer, iPad, or whatever device is in your pocket. The search feature makes it very easy to quickly isolate the note you need, when you need it. Even if you are out of internet range, Evernote keeps your past notes on-hand, so you will be able to quickly access the proposal and speak intelligently about it to the Contracting Officer about your proposal.
