UberConference is now available directly from the Google Apps Admin console which is part of the improvements that were included with the Google Apps Marketplace launch today.
In the updated Google Apps Marketplace experience, Google Apps admins can now find and install third-party apps right from their Google Apps Admin console without a separate authentication process. They can also easily manage permissions from the console.
UberConference is proud to be in the first batch of apps available directly via the Admin console.
This continues a tradition of firsts for UberConference: 1st Chrome Installable apps, 1st HD audio conference service and 1st calling service powered by the new HTML-5 standard WebRTC!
UberConference was proud to be a host for the second annual OpenCo festival in San Francisco. OpenCo, an innovation themed open house hosted in four major cities, allows community members to get a peek into how local companies are breaking new ground. Craig got a great reception as he shared how our corporate culture fosters creativity.
"OpenCo is a great opportunity to showcase how culture, collaboration and hard work play together in building a successful, thriving environment of creative thought and innovation,” said Craig Walker.
