UberConference is about simplicity. So when you invite someone to a conference call, we make sure they get notified either by email or by text. Although this works great for the vast majority of your contacts, there are a few technology lovers out there with more than one or two phone numbers (our very own Craig Walker comes to mind :-). In such cases, you may not want them to be notified about the same conference call on all of their phones.

Starting today, when you schedule a call on UberConference, you can mouse over the attendees that you invite and see the option to select which of them you want to receive notifications and to which phones and email addresses if they have several. This choice is sticky, so we will remember it for you for future invitations.


Hope you like it. As usual, we would love to hear your feedback if you have any.

UberConference is excited to accept TMC’s 2014 Internet Telephony Excellence Award. This is the third year UberConference has won this award and we are honored to be recognized as an innovator in the telephony industry. The award came after a successful week at the ITEXPO West event where our CEO, Craig Walker, was a featured guest on the OTT and UC: The Future of the Telephone Number panel.

Walker also had the opportunity to sit down with Erik Linask, the Group Editorial Director of TMC to discuss UberConference’s role in disrupting the traditional conferencing space. “The funny thing is the things that are frustrating to users haven’t changed in 30 years. It’s dialing some ridiculous access code to get into your call and not knowing who’s in the room when you’re on the call,” said Walker.

“A lot of conference call providers used to give you a wallet card to remember their features. The truth is nobody used these features because nobody remembered to pull out the card. At UberConference, we wanted to change all that. No PINs. No access codes. You just dial a number and you’re on the call. We give you a web address where you can see who’s on the call.”

Another important topic of discussion was catering to the remote workforce with more robust telephony tools. UberConference’s audio heavy interface addresses that challenge with great ease. “Even though conference calling has been around forever, 80% of conference minutes are audio only. If you’re going to have more and more remote people doing it, it’s got to be easier for the remote worker.”

imageDo you have international conference calls? Now people from all over the world can dial into your conferences with their phones.

Today, we’re happy to announce conference call international access numbers in over 40 countries across Europe, Asia and South America. Participants in ÜberConference calls can use these in-country local numbers to avoid expensive international calling rates when calling a US conference number. Additional country codes will be added in February.

We recently launched a feature that lets participants join an ÜberConference from their computer from anywhere in the world. Now people can also easily dial in from their phone with our international access numbers. After dialing the access number, they just punch in the conference call number, then PIN, and get connected.

This new international access number feature is available and included automatically at no extra charge for all ÜberConference Pro and Business accounts.  ÜberConference Free accounts can upgrade to Pro for just $10 a month to get a local number ($20 for toll free) and several other premium features such as larger conference sizes, recurring conferences, outbound dialing and more.

Check out the full list of countries with international access numbers, and our FAQs if you have questions on how they work.
