The popular note-taking system Evernote has announced yet another deal with a telecom company, Telefonica (News - Alert).
Subscribers to Telefonica’s Vivo in Brazil will get a free year of Evernote’s premium service.
“We’re excited to be working with companies like Telefonica that are dedicated to bringing additional value to their mobile customers,” the company’s official blog post announcing the partnership said.
While Evernote (News - Alert) itself is free, the company offers a premium tier that allows for up to a gigabyte of storage space, as well as the ability to store notes offline. Premium users also get improved search. The premium version normally costs $45 a year.
Evernote lets users save their important content, including photos, audio and text notes, as well as favorite Web pages, from any device they have and view them later, serving as an extension of their memories.
“Our goal is to make people smarter by creating a product that transcends local cultures and tastes while increasing productivity,” said Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote, said in a statement. “We are excited to launch a partnership with Telefonica, one of the leading telecommunications companies in the world, which allows us to bring our products to millions of mobile customers across the globe. By starting our partnership in Brazil, we are able to tap into Vivo's vast mobile market presence and continue Evernote's incredible growth in this important country."
“We are delighted to be able to offer our customers around the world this great service free for a year. Our customers have consistently told us that they desire services that make their life better beyond connectivity. Evernote does just this, but connects personal and business information in a way that actually makes it useable and findable,” said Wayne Thorsen, VP of Global Partnerships of Telefonica Digital.
Evernote has already inked similar deals with companies like Deutsche Telekom (News - Alert) in Germany, NTT Docomo in Japan and Taiwan Mobile. The plan is to bring Evernote to Telefonica’s over 250 million customers worldwide.
“Our plan is to expand this relationship to reach the hundreds of millions of Telefonica mobile customers throughout Latin America and Europe,” the Evernote blog post said.
